Frontier has steadily built its broadband presence in Connecticut. In November of last year, word began emerging that the provider was considering offering 1 Gbps services in the state. The provider already had boosted speed offerings to 100 Mbps in August of 2015.

In 2013, Frontier purchased AT&T’s incumbent operations in Connecticut for $2 billion, inheriting its 900,000 voice customers and nearly half-million broadband subscribers. The service provider has continued to expand its footprint through acquisition, taking over Verizon’s assets in California, Florida and Texas earlier this year.
