Frontier Communications is bringing 2-gig speeds to its existing fiber-optic network, which now spans six states, including Texas, Florida, California, Indiana, West Virginia, and Connecticut (via Light Reading). The service includes symmetrical 2-gig downloads and uploads for $149.99 per month, as well as free installation of a Wi-Fi 6E-compatible router and extension.
Frontier is giving away a free 43-inch Amazon Fire TV plus Logitech webcam to the first 1,000 people who sign up – but it’s unclear whether you’ll receive the Omni or 4-Series Fire TV, and it’s just as unclear regarding the Logitech camera. The firm is also running a sale for their $79.99/month single gig fiber package, which includes a $200 Visa Reward Card, an Eero Pro 6 router, and a Wi-Fi extension.
Frontier declared bankruptcy in 2020, blaming its financial difficulties on “under-investment in fiber rollout.” According to Ars Technica, Verizon constructed the majority of Frontier’s fiber connections at the time, after purchasing Fios operations in California, Texas, and Florida in 2016. The firm presently provides service in 25 states and attracted 45,000 new fiber subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2021.
