Frontier Communications ILEC Holdings, Inc. is a company created by Verizon Communications in 2009. The company, sold to Frontier Communications on July 1, 2010, serves as a holding company for former Bell System, Contel, and GTE telephone operating companies that were owned by Verizon prior to July 1, 2010. The company was set up to allow for a Reverse Morris Trust merger, allowing Verizon to spin-off the company to Frontier tax-free.

The company was founded as New Communications ILEC Holdings, Inc. to own the following companies transferred from Verizon and GTE:[1]

The company was a part of a subsidiary called New Communications Holdings, Inc., a company that once sold to Frontier was then merged into the company. Its primary purpose was to transfer Frontier ILEC Holdings as well as Verizon debt that Frontier was to assume.

Once the purchase was completed, the company names were changed to reflect Frontier ownership.[2]
