JDSU and Frontier Collaborate to Deliver Broadband Services to Rural Communities

Video Showcases Success of Frontier Communications to Bridge West Virginia's Digital Divide

Milpitas, Calif., April 23, 2012 — JDSU today introduced a new installment to its “JDSU from a Different View” campaign focused on its work with Frontier
Communications
 to deliver reliable, high-speed broadband communications services to rural communities throughout West Virginia. Frontier is a leading provider of voice, broadband and video services in 27 states in the U.S.

Available on www.jdsu.tv, the video depicts the economic, education, healthcare and other benefits of affordable broadband communications and demonstrates the favorable impact that next-generation network technology is having on West Virginians.

Frontier is playing a leading role in making affordable broadband service available to
more Americans. JDSU is proud to partner with Frontier as they extend fiber-optic, next-generation broadband throughout West Virginia. Frontier’s Fiber 7.0 implements 13 connected rings throughout the state which provide greater quality in its consistency and reliability of service.

“The benefits of providing broadband services in rural areas are enormous. From a business perspective, from an education perspective and from an entertainment perspective, connecting small, rural areas to the global marketplace changes the nature of the U.S. economy,” said David Heard, president of JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment.

“Frontierpartners with JDSU to ensure that our network is of the highest quality,” said Ken Arndt, president of Frontier’s Southeast region. “The test equipment we utilize allows us to ensure that the network is up, is running and is always reliable.”
