Frontier Communications expands broadband service in Greenbrier County;

More residents, businesses gain access to leading-edge services

Frontier Communications has extended broadband service to additional residents and businesses in Greenbrier County.
Customers within three miles of the Fort Spring Missionary Baptist Church on Fort Spring Pike Road now have access to Internet service, said General Manager Mike Swatts.
The broadband expansion project was made possible through subsidies from the federal Connect America Fund (CAF). The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said broadband service is necessary for citizens to seek full participation in the nation’s economy and society. To expand broadband service, the FCC transformed the telephone-focused Universal Service Fund (USF) into the CAF.

 
“Frontier has expanded broadband service in West Virginia in an unprecedented manner during the past three years, and we now are leveraging our work through CAF,” Swatts said. “Through our broadband expansion, more local residents and businesses now have access to the Internet.”

 
Swatts encouraged residents to call 1-800-921-8101 toll free for information about service options. Residential customers ordering Frontier broadband for the first time can start at just $19.99 per month with a qualifying phone service, he 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, he added.
Swatts said business owners and managers can call 1-877-501-5661 toll free for information about acquiring business-class speeds and Frontier’s $19.99-per-month broadband promotion.
In addition, Swatts said, Frontier offers a satellite-delivered service – Frontier Broadband – that is ideal for many households that do not have access to land-based broadband service. He added that Frontier Broadband residential service delivers an impressive array of speeds that allow customers to stream video and use other high bandwidth applications – up to 5 Mbps download/1 Mbps upload to 15 Mbps download/2 Mbps upload.
