Let the hunt begin. has begun a campaign of targeting current customers who will transition over to Frontier, assuming the recent is approved. In a obtained by Telecompetitor, Comcast’s northwestern region is citing the Frontier acquisition of Verizon territory in Washington and Oregon as reason to switch to Comcast. “Recently it was announced that Verizon has decided to sell its home phone and FiOS operations in Oregon and Washington to Frontier Communications – a company best known as a rural home telephone provider,” says Comcast in the letter. Notice the dig at ‘rural home telephone’ in the text.

Comcast is careful not to say what Frontier will do with the Verizon properties, saying “We can’t tell you what services Frontier will continue or change.” But they go on to say “…we are just about to complete the largest set of product enhancements since building America’s leading fiber optic network…” America’s leading fiber optic network – really? We guess it depends on how you define ‘leading fiber optic network.’ Comcast appears to be quite liberal with the definition.

How long before Comcast (and others) cite the as bait to lure Verizon customers over pre Frontier transition? Probably not long. Happy hunting Comcast.
