Frontier has transitioned from a rural telephone provider to today being the 4th largest provider of digital subscriber line in the U.S. The company also offers Internet and digital TV service. In a just unsealed whistleblower complaint, a Frontier subsidiary is accused of defrauding taxpayers.
A competitor sued Frontier West Virginia Inc., a subsidiary of Frontier Communications, and claimed the company defrauded taxpayers in connection with the government’s $4.7 billion Broadband Technology Opportunities Program known commonly as BTOP. The suit says that Frontier was awarded millions of dollars of grant money to extend fiber networks in rural communities but misused much of the money. An insider we spoke with claims that Frontier is engaged in other misdeeds including the not properly collecting and remitting taxes and fees charged to phone subscribers.

We are hoping to speak with someone with inside knowledge of the company, perhaps a billing clerk, regulatory affairs worker or a member of the sales staff. Information, even if a few years old, is helpful
