Verizon Pennsylvania, Inc., formerly The Bell Telephone Company of Pennsylvania or Pennsylvania Bell, who traded as Bell of Pennsylvania, is the Bell Operating Company serving most of Pennsylvania. In 1984, the Bell System Divestiture split Bell of Pennsylvania off into a Regional Holding Company, along with the 21 other BOCs AT&T had a majority stake in. On January 1, 1984, Bell of Pennsylvania became part of Bell Atlantic.

Throughout the 80s to the first half of the 90s, Bell of Pennsylvania, also called Pennsylvania Bell, kept its traditional identity. In 1994, Bell Atlantic started rebranding all its companies to Bell Atlantic-(state), so Bell of Pennsylvania became Bell Atlantic - Pennsylvania, Inc. In 2000, after the Bell Atlantic-GTE merger, the corporation changed its name to Verizon, and so Bell of Pennsylvania once again changed its name, this time to Verizon Pennsylvania, Inc.
