New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 26, 2022) follows:
Based out of Stanford, Connecticut, Frontier Communication previously used to serve rural areas, but they have expanded operations and are now present in some cities as well.
In 2020, it had over 3.57 million users, the majority of which were residential customers. The same year, Frontier Communications filed for bankruptcy and sold their junk bonds.
That said, recent reports from Frontier Internet users indicate that the service is down or not working for many.
Some initially thought it was a problem on their end and tried restarting their router, changing browsers, and clearing cookies but to no avail.
Down detector – a popular service that gives information about live outages – has numerous reports indicating Frontier Internet is indeed down for some.
Many are expressing their frustration on social media platforms like Twitter. And here are some reports from those affected.
@AskFrontier – You have an outage? Tried calling your tech support and received a “greater than one hour” estimated wait time? I cannot wait to drop you like a bad habit once @GetSpectrum figures out how to run fiber 1000 feet to my house… #frontiercommunications #terrible
Same here, everything on my router said it’s connected but none of my devices will connect to the internet, it has to be a widespread outage
