Frontier Communications Exceeds Major Broadband Milestone

Frontier Communications Corporation today announced it exceeded its 2017 Connect America Fund (CAF) milestones in each of the 29 states it serves, reaching over 45 percent of its eligible households under the FCC’s CAF program. In addition to new broadband access, over 900,000 households experienced speed increases due to network upgrades in their communities. These improvements result from CAF funding and Frontier capital investment and exceeded the program requirements to reach 40% of eligible households by the end of 2017.

“We’ve hit our stride with the CAF program, and we are excited to continue bringing faster speeds to more communities over the next three years,” said Mark D. Nielsen, Frontier Communications’ Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer. “The combination of FCC funding and company investment have allowed us to deploy more broadband and improve speeds. Everyone benefits from a more connected rural America.”

Frontier has CAF-eligible service territories in Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. It has committed to broadband availability in CAF-eligible areas in 774,000 households throughout the life of the program.
