US telco Frontier Communications has announced the launch of a new symmetrical 5 Gbps Service. With this service launch, Frontier became the first and only major internet provider with network-wide Fiber 5 Gbps service. Frontier offers fixed broadband connectivity to consumers and businesses in 25 states and is building digital infrastructure across the country.
Frontier Network Wide 5 Gbps Service
Frontier is the first major ISP to deliver a network-wide 5 Gbps fiber internet service to build Gigabit America. Frontier says 5 Gbps internet has 125x faster upload speeds, 5x faster download speeds and 2.5x less latency than cable. The telco is setting a new standard by launching its 5 Gig fiber internet service, which will be available to customers in all its fiber markets at once. This marks a significant upgrade from its 2 Gig service, which was launched less than a year ago, and eliminates phased rollouts.
