One of the Mountain State's most popular events, The State Fair of West Virginia, has selected Frontier Communications to play a key role in its summer tradition.

"We have chosen Frontier to provide us with critical communications services," Marlene Pierson Joliffe, chief executive officer of The State Fair of West Virginia, said in a news release. "Frontier's technicians have a great deal of knowledge about advanced communications services, but they also are very familiar with The State Fair itself and our needs."

Frontier now provides broadband and telephone services to The State Fair, which Joliffe said is critical to the organization's year-round operations.

Frontier General Manager Mike Swatts said he is extremely proud to work with the organizers of The State Fair and to be associated with one of West Virginia's great events.

"As West Virginians, the men and women of Frontier are aware of the importance of  The State Fair and what it means to the Greenbrier County community, the youth of the state and the thousands of families who make attending the event an annual tradition," Swatts said in a news release.
