FairPoint expects to complete the transition of its customers to its own new suite of integrated systems over the next few days.
Verizon Communications has completed the process of transferring to FairPoint Communications all responsibility for the network systems supporting the operations of FairPoint in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
In March 2008, FairPoint acquired the former landline operations of Verizon in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
FairPoint Communications provided a notice of readiness to Verizon in November, 2008, indicating that it would conclude its transition services agreement with Verizon at the end of January 2009. FairPoint is expected to complete the transition of its customers in the three-state region to its own new suite of integrated systems over the next few days.
Jim Brophy, director of business development at Verizon, said: We commend FairPoint and Capgemini US, as FairPoint’s lead integration partner, for their thorough oversight of the cutover and maintaining a collaborative work environment that has enabled FairPoint and Verizon to accomplish the cutover this past weekend. We will continue to assist FairPoint as it completes its part of the cutover and prepares its own systems to operate on a stand-alone basis.
