Frontier announced plans to expand its fiber-optic network in Connecticut to make fast and reliable broadband service accessible to approximately 800,000 homes and businesses in the state by the end of 2025, with an investment of approximately $800 million.
Frontier’s investment to expand its fiber-optic network in Connecticut is heralded as one of the largest private infrastructure buildouts in the state’s history.
Since its fiber build began in late 2020, Frontier has built fiber to over 500,000 homes and businesses in more than 70 towns across Connecticut – including urban centers, such as Hartford, Norwalk, and Bridgeport; suburban areas, such as West Hartford, North Haven, and Glastonbury; and rural areas such as Union and Stafford Springs.
Mike Freda, Mayor of North Haven, Connecticut, commented:
“Frontier is providing our community with new fiber broadband infrastructure that will offer our citizens the fastest and most reliable internet service available for the foreseeable future. Frontier has been an outstanding partner with the North Haven community. Their communication on the integration of this new fiber broadband here has been exceptional. We look forward to all of the opportunities that this new infrastructure will offer the people of North Haven.”
Frontier noted it is also deploying more than one thousand team members across Connecticut to install fiber in new areas, including Windsor Locks, East Windsor, and Stafford Springs, with plans to grow its fiber footprint in the state by roughly 60% by the end of 2025.
Rallied around its corporate motto of "Building Gigabit America," Frontier noted it is accelerating fiber network builds for communities across the country, with a plan to reach 10 million locations by the end of 2025.
Veronica Bloodworth, Frontier’s chief network officer, concluded:
“Connecticut is a key part of Building Gigabit America. We’re proud to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to build critical digital infrastructure across the state. Our superior fiber technology will deliver a reliable digital experience that will serve Connecticut for generations to come."
