Assemblyman Mike Gatto Seeks Resolution to Ongoing Frontier Communications Outages

Additionally, on Wednesday, Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement regarding ongoing Frontier Communications telephone and internet outages after the Verizon FiOS changeover: “There has been an alarming rate of telephone and internet outages in Southern California and consumers are frustrated with the lack of a solution to this months-long ordeal,” said Utilities and Commerce Committee Chairman Mike Gatto.

“These problems need to be resolved swiftly. Cities are unable to live stream council meetings and residents are at risk because of the inability to dial 911 in an emergency. My committee will hold hearings on the impact on our constituents and the appropriate government response if these problems persist.”

Mike Gatto is the Chairman of the Utilities & Commerce Committee and the longest-serving current member of the State Assembly. He represents California’s 43rd Assembly District, which includes Los Angeles, Glendale, and Burbank.
