Frontier deploys rural broadband to 8 more states

Tuesday 19 December 2017 | 13:53 CET | News
Frontier Communications expanded its rural broadband network in eight additional states, namely Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin, exceeding 2017 milestone requirements of the Connect America Fund program (CAF). The 8 new states join the list of states where Frontier is ahead of pace in deploying rural broadband. The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) programme rules associated with CAF require companies that accepted the funds to deploy broadband to 40 percent of the eligible locations by the end of 2017.
