Frontier leveraging existing FTTN to deliver IPTV to 7M homes

Frontier says it will leverage existing fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) network infrastructure to deliver IPTV services to the 7 million customers it will have across its footprint once it completes its purchase of Verizon's (NYSE: VZ) wireline assets. 

Speaking to investors during its fourth quarter 2015 earnings call, Dan McCarthy, CEO of Frontier, confirmed that the company sees great potential for IPTV.

When Frontier completes its acquisition of Verizon's wireline properties in California, Texas and Florida, it will also look for ways to extend the service to other homes as it upgrades copper facilities in these markets.
