In recent years GTE merged with Bell Atlantic to form Verizon.

GTE provided local telephone service in a large number of areas of the U.S.

They also owned Automatic Electric[?], a telephone equipment supplier similar in many ways to Western Electric.

GTE operated in Canada via controlling interest in subsidiary companies such as BC TEL and Quebec Tel[?].

Its former Canadian subsidiaries have combined with the former Alberta Government Telephones[?] (AGT) to create TELUS, the second largest telecommunications carrier in Canada.
