Frontier Communications is continuing to build its Connecticut presence, holding a job fair this week in New Haven to hire 100 new employees for its operations in the state.
Most of the jobs are in sales positions, with some support positions open including accounting and maintenance.
“We continue to expand our investments in the state,” said Ken Arndt, Frontier’s east region president, speaking to WTNH. “As we grow we need to add people.”
Frontier has steadily built its broadband presence in Connecticut. In November of last year, word began emerging that the provider was considering offering 1 Gbps services in the state. The provider already had boosted speed offerings to 100 Mbps in August of 2015.
In 2013, Frontier purchased AT&T’s incumbent operations in Connecticut for $2 billion, inheriting its 900,000 voice customers and nearly half-million broadband subscribers. The service provider has continued to expand its footprint through acquisition, taking over Verizon’s assets in California, Florida and Texas earlier this year.
