Frontier Communications of Virginia, Inc. is an operating company created in 2009 to take over operations in Crows, Virginia and Hematite, Virginia (located in Alleghany County that had been served by Verizon Virginia (formerly The Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia).[1]

Frontier Communications purchased Verizon West Virginia from Verizon Communications effective July 1, 2010. Because the Crows-Hematite central office, located on the state line of Virginia and West Virginia, received its dial tone from a central office in West Virginia, operations in Alleghany County were split from the former C&P Telephone Company of Virginia and transferred to Frontier.


Frontier Communications of Virginia is one of several telephone companies owned by independents that were created from the split of former Bell System operations. Northern New England Telephone Operations and Telephone Operating Company of Vermont are both companies owned by FairPoint that Verizon split from Verizon New England in 2008. CenturyTel of the Midwest-Kendall owns lines that Ameritech split from Wisconsin Bell in 1998.
