Frontier previously offered discounted services to customers as part of the Emergency Broadband Benefit that emerged to support families throughout the constraints of the pandemic. Under this new program, Frontier has the opportunity to bring even more options at no or reduced cost to households.
What difference does this make?
Eligible ACP customers have access to a range of options that come with free installation. Frontier’s speeds are symmetrical, reliable, and provide up to 50x faster upload speeds than cable, meaning they can meet households’ ever-changing bandwidth needs by powering simultaneous use of multiple connected devices.
Specific offers for ACP customers include a brand new 100MB fiber internet speed offer that will be a net zero cost and replaces 50MB as the lowest fiber speed available for the ACP program. Customers can also apply their ACP credit to higher-speed offers. A Tribal credit of up to $75 is also available.
