STAMFORD, Conn. -- November 09, 2012

Frontier Communications Corporation, the largest communications company
focused on serving rural America, announced today that it has hired more than
435 veterans since November 2010. Its hiring efforts through the Employer
Partnership of the Armed Forces , the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a dedicated
website and active recruiting are part of the company’s continuing outreach to
returning service members and veterans.

According to Maggie Wilderotter, Chairman and CEO of Frontier, "Members of the
military have a well-earned reputation for leadership, teamwork,
accountability and discipline. In addition, many have been in military roles
that complement skill sets Frontier and other companies need, such as
information technology, customer service and technical operations." She added,
“We are committed to doing all we can to reduce the number of unemployed
veterans. It’s especially important to give our all during these difficult
economic and high-unemployment times. Our military men and women were there
for us; it's our turn to be here for them.”

In addition, Frontier Communications, in partnership with The History Channel,
brought the Take a Veteran to School Day program to Washington state’s Picnic
Point Elementary School in Edmonds and to Butternut Creek Elementary School in
Aloha. As part of the program, students had the opportunity to honor local
veterans during each school’s Veterans Day Assembly.

A national initiative developed by The History Channel to link veterans with
students nationwide, Take a Veteran to School Day is designed to help children
learn more about the history of Veterans Day. The program connects generations
and helps young people learn about the past through the voices and experiences
of veterans from all backgrounds and walks of life.

With Frontier’s support, students gathered to hear stories of service from
invited veterans. The students wore T-shirts, bracelets and buttons provided
by The History Channel, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and performed
patriotic songs for the veterans.

As part of The Red Cross program Holiday Mail for Heroes, the Picnic Point
students created thank you cards for active military members, military
families and veterans and presented the cards to representatives from the Red
Cross during the assembly. “The simple act of receiving a card with a holiday
greeting or message of thanks is an enormous morale booster and can have a
great impact on a military member,” said Chuck Morrison, Executive Director of
the Snohomish County Chapter of the American Red Cross. All craft materials
used in the project were donated to the school by Frontier.

Frontier is also providing all veterans who work for the company with flag
lapel pins and a letter of appreciation from the Chairman and CEO. All
employees are receiving a flower pot with blooming red, white and blue flowers
as a way to remember and honor those who have served in the military.
