NEW HAVEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Frontier Communications Corporation (NYSE:FTR, news, filings) will add 25 employees to its Connecticut call center to provide support for Frontier residential products and services, handling calls primarily from Spanish-speaking customers across the country as well as calls in English.
