LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(Bozeman, Mont.)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester has successfully defended Montanans from Verizon's attempt to terminate contracts.
Tester demanded answers from Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam last week and pushed the telecommunications company to reverse its decision to eliminate contracts and remove rural customers from its network. Verizon responded to Tester's demands today and announced that the company will continue to serve Montanans and will not terminate the service of rural customers.
"Wireless communication is critical for Montana families, businesses, and emergency first responders," Tester said. "I am pleased with Verizon's decision to uphold its commitment to our state, if any Verizon customers have continued concerns, please contact my office. I will continue to defend Montanans from harmful actions that undermine our quality of life."
