Frontier and AT&T Develop New Strategies -- Dividends Stay Strong

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Frontier Communications and AT&T

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 30, 2011) - Companies throughout the Domestic Telecom industry are looking at new strategies now that more customers are dropping their land lines. The rise in popularity of mobile phones has motivated many of the sector's customers to eliminate often redundant land lines in their homes. Large telecom companies are also offering packages that bundle land lines along with other popular services. Revenues have so far remained stable -- or grown -- allowing these companies to maintain sizeable dividends. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Telecom sector and provides equity research on Frontier Communications Corporation (NYSE: FTR) and AT&T, Inc. (NYSE: T).

Before proceeding with mergers and acquisitions, telecom companies need approval from regulatory agencies. Presently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is facing pressure from the National Telecommunications & Cable Association to make it easier for cable television companies and competitive telephone providers to merge.

Recently, the National Telecommunications & Cable Association asked the FCC to find that cross-ownership prohibitions contained in the Telecommunications Act of 1996 do not apply to cable operators and competitive local exchange carriers.
