Frontier Communications outages could cost residents their lives
The Frontier acquisition of Verizon is turning into a disaster. After the multi billion dollar acquisition of Verizon land lines, in April of this year, customers have complained of outages since day one. In addition to the outages, billing issues are also of concern to their nearly 4 million new customers. Frontier executives informed the public issues would be resolved by June. That is not the case. It was just reported the outage failures has affected a small California city’s 911 system.
KESQ News Channel 3, covering the areas of Coachella Valley and Palm Springs, reported 911 was down for nearly two hours.
Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) also shared her frustration, via social media, about the outages. Frontier also provides landline service in her district, which covers Hemet, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Murrieta and Perris.
If these outages aren’t corrected, how many lives would be lost if the residents don’t follow the outages on the news and/or social media and know 911 is down?
