What is happening?
Frontier joined the Affordable Connectivity Program in January with the goal of expanding access to blazing fast internet speeds and uninterrupted connectivity to more homes across the country. Frontier previously offered discounted services to customers as part of the Emergency Broadband Benefit that emerged to support families throughout the stresses of the pandemic. Under this new program, Frontier has the ability to offer even more options at no or reduced cost to households.
What difference does it make?
Eligible ACP customers have access to a range of options that come with free installation. Frontier’s speeds are symmetric, reliable, and deliver download speeds up to 50 times faster than cable, meaning they can meet ever-changing household bandwidth needs by powering concurrent use of multiple connected devices.
Specific offers for ACP customers include an all-new 100MB fiber internet speed offer that will be at zero net cost and replaces 50MB as the lowest fiber speed available to the ACP program. Customers can also apply their ACP credit to faster offers. A tribal credit of up to $75 is also available.
