The Loop

Even the Wall Street Journal is confused.
In an Aug. 21 article on AT&T’s plans to offer local telephone service, the WSJ referred to Rochester’s local telephone company as Frontier Communications Corp., which the story says sells wholesale service to rivals like AT&T.
Hmmmm. We have Frontier Corp., the parent company. And we have Frontier Communications of Rochester Inc., the competitive branch that sells telecommunications services in Rochester. Then there’s Rochester Telephone Corp., the subsidiary that sells wholesale local service to competitors like AT&T.
Confused yet? You’re in good company.
