Frontier Communications Corp. officials say the company has met West Virginia regulators' mandated goals to improve local service.
The Public Service Commission required the improvements when it approved Frontier's takeover of Verizon's landline operations in the state in 2010.
The requirements include investing nearly $280 million to improve service quality and increase broadband deployment by the end of 2013. The PSC also required Frontier to ensure that at least 85 percent of households in Verizon's former network have broadband access by the end of 2014.
Frontier senior vice president Dana Waldo told the Charleston Daily Mail that the company has met all the requirements.
PSC Consumer Advocate Division director Byron Harris said more improvement is needed. He calls Verizon's performance a "lousy level" from which to improve.
