Lumos Networks has issued a voluntary reduction in force and has plans to reduce the workforce even further. So far 47 jobs have been lost in the last month. Moving the jobs back to VA after they bought the fiber from FiberNet. Sad.

They are refusing new residential customers in WV. Shame on Lumos. I hate Suddenstink and frontier. We need an alternative.

Quality and reliability of their metro loop really sucks

Seen better reliability from Frontier, and that's saying a lot.

All clecs will be done in 2 years. The federal copper act states that as long we have copper clecs can use frontier lines but guess what clowns. Since we. Frontier has put up over 12,000 miles of fiber since July of 2010. And doing away with copper. We don't have to share lines. Bahahahaha. Take for example. St albans bridge. All copper is coming down. Replacing over river. With fiber. All clecs. Customers will have to come back to frontier. Because y'all cheap ass company can't afford putting fiber. Across river. Bahahahahah. Good day losers

hey hahahaha lumos bought fibernet to add to our already large fiber footprint we have,trust this, we are being positioned to where we don't need frontier for anything.hence forth we are doing quite well in the metro and fiber routes.

I wish you could connect your fiber that runs by my house straight to my house! It is the future and nothing beats fiber w/ its unlimited bandwidth, higher and much more reliable speeds, and also a much crisper TV feed that isn't compressed the crap out of like Suddenlink.
