STAMFORD, Conn. -- November 14, 2012

Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) announced that College Hill Custom
Threads, located in Pullman, Washington, won the “Frontier Small Business
Social All Star Contest.” College Hill Custom Threads edged out five
semi-finalists in the nationwide contest. More than 900 companies, primarily
from the 27 states served by Frontier, entered the social media competition,
which ended October 21, 2012.

Small business customers registered for the contest and then, using the social
media skills Frontier provided in webinars, rallied their customers, friends
and acquaintances to show community support by “liking” them on Facebook. The
company that received the highest score for creative strategy implemented
during the activity period and had the most “Likes” over a five-day period in
October won the grand prize. $10,000 in Frontier products and services was
awarded to help the winning company improve its business through better
communication products and solutions.

“Frontier recognizes that social media is important to small businesses with
tight budgets. This contest was designed to further educate companies on how
to use social media, to be more effective online and improve their online
presence. It is just one more way we offer assistance to our small business
customers. Frontier helped 912 companies connect with their communities during
the contest,” said Martin Erkela, Frontier general manager in Pullman. “We are
so proud that one of our local businesses took home the grand prize of $10,000
in Frontier products and services!”

Tony Poston is the owner of College Hill Custom Threads and was excited to win
this contest. He challenged everyone to support his business with a “Like” on
his page and announced he would shave his head if his business took first
place. True to his word, he shaved his head and posted a video of the event on
YouTube.

“College Hill Custom Threads was formed with one goal in mind: To provide
unique, affordable, quality custom apparel with great customer service,” said
Poston. “This contest was a lot of fun and the winning package will help us
achieve our goal. I am very proud of our team of employees, reps and interns
who helped us reach the level of success we have today.”

The other small business semi-finalists were CH Pet Gifts, Sun Prairie,
Wisconsin; Porch Rockin’, Raleigh, North Carolina; Pine Cradle Lake Family
Campground, Towanda, Pennsylvania; J. Gumbo’s, Delaware, Ohio; and Moonit, an
online company.
