Frontier Communications Announces 2012 Network Enhancements, Capital Investments In New York

Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) recently announced that 2012 network enhancements and capital investments for its operations in New York totaled more than $123.6 million. Frontier offers broadband, digital phone service, satellite television service, Frontier satellite broadband, FTR Energy Services, customer premises equipment (telephone systems, support for commercial businesses and e-911 applications), Ethernet, Dedicated Internet Access, data center services, and web security/data back-up through the Frontier Secure suite of services.

“In 2012, we targeted significant capital investments to upgrade our network technology throughout New York,” said Kevin Smith, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Frontier’s New York operations. “We aggressively deployed new equipment and augmented devices with our customers at the center of our decisions. We completed infrastructure improvements to our existing facilities to provide faster broadband speeds at better prices.”

Based on recent network enhancements, Frontier residential customers can consider different speed options for household broadband usage: Broadband Ultra , with speeds starting at up to 12 Mbps, for online gaming, downloading tunes and watching movies, with speed to spare; and Broadband Ultimate, with speeds up to 25 Mbps, allowing the entire family to play the games in real time, watch HD movies, and send large files in seconds.

“We are able to deliver these products thanks to the installation of IP-based DSLAMs, Bonded ADSL2+ ( asymmetric digital subscriber line) and VDSL ( very high speed digital subscriber lines). These equipment upgrades impacted 155 of Frontier’s 194 switching offices and 214 remote DSLAM/switches in our New York markets. As a result, by year-end 2012 we were able to offer faster speeds to essentially 403,000 New York households,” said Smith.

Smith noted that interoffice data transport networks within the Rochester and Chenango markets are currently being upgraded to 10 Gig Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) topology. He said that this new network will support current and future data services to Frontier’s customers and increase bandwidth.
