<h2>More residents, businesses gain access to leading-edge services<\/h2>\r\nFrontier Communications has extended broadband service to additional residents and businesses in Greenbrier County.\r\nCustomers 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.\r\nThe 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\u2019s economy and society. To expand broadband service, the FCC transformed the telephone-focused Universal Service Fund (USF) into the CAF.\r\n\r\n \r\n\u201cFrontier 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,\u201d Swatts said. \u201cThrough our broadband expansion, more local residents and businesses now have access to the Internet.\u201d\r\n\r\n \r\nSwatts 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.\r\nSwatts said business owners and managers can call 1-877-501-5661 toll free for information about acquiring business-class speeds and Frontier\u2019s $19.99-per-month broadband promotion.\r\nIn addition, Swatts said, Frontier offers a satellite-delivered service \u2013 Frontier Broadband \u2013 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 \u2013 up to 5 Mbps download\/1 Mbps upload to 15 Mbps download\/2 Mbps upload.
