On October 8, 2013, Farmers Mutual Telephone Company filed a complaint against Frontier Communications of Minnesota, Inc. alleging that Frontier is engaging in anticompetitive and unreasonable business practices by its imposition of early termination fees.

The comment period closes November 22, 2013.
