Frontier Communications announced plans to make an investment of $800 million to expand its fiber-optic network in Connecticut.
This investment supports the company’s plans to deliver fast fiber broadband connectivity to over 800,000 homes and businesses by the end of 2025.
Frontier is accelerating a fiber future for communities with a plan to reach 10 million locations by the end of 2025. To date, Frontier has built fiber to 500,000 locations in the state of Connecticut.
“Connecticut is a key part of Building Gigabit America,” said Veronica Bloodworth, Frontier’s Chief Network Officer. “Our superior fiber technology will deliver a reliable digital experience that will serve Connecticut for generations to come.”
Since its fiber build began in late 2020, Frontier has built fiber to over 500,000 homes and businesses in more than 70 towns across Connecticut – including urban centers, such as Hartford, Norwalk, and Bridgeport; suburban areas, such as West Hartford, North Haven, and Glastonbury; and rural areas such as Union and Stafford Springs.
Frontier is deploying more than one thousand team members across Connecticut to install fiber in new areas, including Windsor Locks, East Windsor, and Stafford Springs, with plans to grow its fiber footprint in the state by roughly 60% by the end of 2025.
