    Default Frontier phone contract?

    Anyone hear who was given the Frontier phone contract today. I know there was 6 or 7 different companies going for it and the decision was going to be made public today. But I haven't hear anything yet. I know they were looking to get USIC out of about 5 different states.

    I doubt S&N Locating will be trying for it.

    S&N Construction had their installation contract in northern West Virginia. Kept the contract for about six months and then backed out for non-payment.

    What?!?!? The almighty USIC might lose another contract? That is a real shocker! Hopefully the next company to pick it up will do a much better job locating for them

    they got it. I know because they are posting for areas up in northern il that i locate fiber in so that confirms it. Too bad so sad usic. But atleast that is 1 less utility that their locators have to deal with.

    Well let's see.........If USIC lost that contract......And their locators got crap raises this year(1%).......Let's see, 2, 1, carry the 3......That's probably no raise for all the hard work those guys do this year! I really feel for those guys who put in alot of hours, actually give a crap about their job, actually enjoy locating.........And still get the shaft.

    I work for USIC and I would be more than happy to give up Frontier. I have 2 major projects going on right now with mostly Frontier to locate. Yippieeee for Synergy One, they can have it.
