Verizon Transfers Some New England Networks to FairPoint

Verizon Communications has completed the process of transferring to FairPoint Communications Inc. all responsibility for the systems supporting the operations of FairPoint in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

FairPoint Communications provided a Notice of Readiness to Verizon in November, indicating that FairPoint would conclude its Transition Services Agreement with Verizon at the end of January 2009. FairPoint will complete the transition of its customers in the three-state region to its own new suite of state-of-the-art fully integrated systems over the next few days.

  • In March 2008, FairPoint acquired the former landline operations of Verizon in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
