Frontier has extended broadband service to over 275,000 households across CA, using a mix of its own capital and the Federal Communications Commission's Connect America Fund Phase II program funding.

In all, the service provider can now offer broadband service in 200 neighborhoods in about 100 cities and communities in 15 California counties. These households include over 39,000 CAF-designated locations in Frontier's service area that now have access to broadband with speeds of at least 10/1 Mbps—nearly half of its planned 90,000 locations statewide, which exceeds the CAF program's 2017 deployment milestone of 40%. Frontier said that this CAF deployment also enables higher-speed service to thousands more nearby households, with speeds up to 115 Mbps to some locations. Since these connections are over the telco’s copper network, the speeds will vary depending on the physical distance from Frontier's nearest central office (CO) or remote terminal (RT) facilities.
