New England Telephone and Telegraph Company was incorporated in 1883. It consolidated the Telephone Dispatch Company, the National Bell Telephone Company of Maine, the Boston and Northern Telephone Company. The New England Telephone and Telegraph Company, more commonly known as New England Telephone, was a Bell Operating Company that served most of New England as a part of the original AT&T for seven decades, from the creation of the national monopoly in 1907 until January 1, 1984, when AT&T was divested of its local operating companies. It became part of NYNEX on that date, and from 1994 the name was no longer officially publicly used.
In 2008, its operations in the three northern New England states were sold to FairPoint Communications under the operation of Northern New England Telephone Operations. Operations in southern New England remain with Verizon.
