WILMINGTON, Ohio, June 12, 2014 – Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) has made broadband service available to additional residents and businesses in the Clarksville and Lynchburg areas, General Manager Bethany Yost said.
“Frontier continues to make investments in its broadband network in southwestern Ohio and provide local families and businesses the connections and speeds they need,” Yost said. “We provide customers attractive options in broadband service and value.”
She said broadband service is available in the Clinton-Massie School District area near Clarksville and the area from state Route 134 south of Lynchburg from Lynchburg-Clay High School south to Barker Road.
Yost said the Frontier broadband network offers residents speeds of up to 24 megabits per second (Mbps) through Frontier’s Broadband Ultra and Ultimate services. Businesses may have access to service of up to 40 Mbps download and up to 10 Mbps upload – a level that supports video security and the transfer of large files. Frontier also offers speeds up to 1 Gigabit through its Ethernet platform.
Yost encouraged residents to call 1-800-921-8101 toll free for information about service options. Businesses can call 1-877-501-5661 toll free for information about acquiring business-class speeds and Frontier’s $19.99-per-month broadband promotion, Yost said.
Residential customers ordering Frontier broadband for the first time can start at just $19.99 per month with a qualifying phone service, she said. The no-contract offer provides a two-year price guarantee for broadband service. Customers have an opportunity to bundle broadband service with telephone and television services and realize substantial savings.
The projects were made possible in part through subsidies from the federal Connect America Fund
(CAF), Yost said. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said broadband service is necessary for citizens to fully participate in the nation’s economy and society. To expand broadband service, the FCC transformed the telephone-focused Universal Service Fund (USF) into the CAF.
