DFT Communications receives Public Service Commission commendation

The New York State Public Service Commission recently recognized Dunkirk and Fredonia Telephone Company and Cassadaga Telephone Corporation for providing excellent telephone service as a local exchange carrier in 2013. The commendation was the 25th consecutive year for Dunkirk & Fredonia Telephone Company and the 21st consecutive year for Cassadaga Telephone Corporation.

Each year, the Commission recognizes telephone companies that provide exemplary service to their customers. The criteria includes evaluation of “customer trouble report rates” (CTRR) and the number of consumer complaints received by the Commission. Among its criteria for recognition, the PSC requires that customer trouble report rates must be less than 3.3 percent per 100 access lines. In addition, competitive local exchange carriers must be facility-based providers and have provided service quality data for each of the months of 2013.

“We are honored that the Public Service Commission has recognized our continued efforts,” said Mark R. Maytum, President and Chief Operations Officer at DFT Communications. “For over 116 years, DFT Communications has worked to go beyond our customer’s expectations. We continue to make every effort to offer our customer’s exceptional customer service.”
