NYNEX Corporation (pronounced Nine-x) was a telephone company which served five New England states (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) as well as New York. Formed January 1, 1984 as a result of the Bell System Divestiture, NYNEX was a Regional Bell operating company made up of former AT&T subsidiaries New York Telephone Company and New England Telephone. Hence, the name NYNEX stood for New York/New England, with the X representing the unknown future. See the Bell Atlantic Corporate History for the official derivation of the name. NYNEX acquired Bell Atlantic on August 14, 1997, at which time it took the Bell Atlantic name. On June 30, 2000, Bell Atlantic acquired GTE to form Verizon Communications.
