Telephone Operating Company of Vermont LLC is a telephone operating company owned by Northern New England Telephone Operations, a subsidiary of FairPoint.

The company was created following Verizon's 2008 sale of its telephone lines in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to FairPoint. All of Verizon's assets in those states were grouped into a new holding company to be sold off and merged into FairPoint, Northern New England Spinco. All three states had been served by Verizon New England, formerly New England Telephone, a Bell Operating Company.

The company now operates telephone lines in Vermont formerly operated by Verizon New England. It was sold by Verizon to FairPoint in 2008.[1]

The company is not connected to FairPoint Vermont, an operating company consisting of former GTE lines that FairPoint has owned since before acquiring the Verizon assets.
