State officials seek meeting for Frontier troubles

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut officials have asked state regulators to set a meeting for consumers to confront Frontier Communications about problems with the transition from AT&T Internet, cable and phone service.

Frontier took over the landline, Internet and UVerse cable TV systems from AT&T in a $2 billion deal.

The New Haven Register reports (http://bit.ly/1zTZ3g9 ) that Attorney General George Jepsen’s office said it’s fielded 130 complaints. He and state Consumer Counsel Elin Swanson Katz are seeking the meeting with the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission.

Paul Quick, Frontier’s senior vice president and general manager for Connecticut, said the company welcomes the opportunity to provide information to the public and officials about the AT&T transition.

A spokesman for the regulatory agency said staff will make recommendations to the commissioners who will decide on a meeting or other action.
