Connection to Rochester
Though Global Crossing is officially based in Bermuda and run from Florham Park, NJ, it still has a substantial Rochester-area presence of about 500 employees, recently consolidating three offices into a brand new, 90,000 square-foot, building in Henrietta.
Global Crossing acquired Frontier Communications, formerly Rochester Tel, in 1999 for its nationwide fiber optic network that it built throughout the 1990s. It later sold the Frontier name and local exchange properties to Citizens Communications 2001.
