NTelos, which began as a rural telephone carrier in Clifton Forge, has been busy repositioning its wireline business from traditional voice access lines to high-bandwidth data products and services. The company acquired a 2,200-mile, fiber-optic network in Pennsylvania from Allegheny Communications in 2009 and another 3,500 route miles in five states from One Communications Corp. last year. The push has created a robust regional wireline unit to complement nTelos’ better-known retail wireless operations.
