Frontier Deploys Latest Broadband Technology Across Ohio
 
Customers of Frontier Communications in Ohio are now enjoying the benefits of the company’s recent aggressive deployment of the latest generation broadband technology.  The company fully deployed Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) systems throughout its service area in Ohio. These broadband networks improve the online experience for customers in terms of Internet speeds and broadband availability while enhancing network flexibility and manageability for the company.  
 
Communities now served by this technology include: Ashland, Athens, Bowling Green, Brunswick, Bryan, Cambridge, Celina, Circleville, Dover, Georgetown, Marion, Medina, New Philadelphia, Piketon, Norwalk, Oxford, Sylvania, Troy and Wilmington.           
 
The flexible optical network capabilities of ROADM are important as network capacity continues to grow and as demand for Frontier's higher-capacity residential and business broadband services increases.
 
Frontier's Packet-Optical Transport Network can now deliver more than 30 different types of residential or business services such as Ethernet (Fiber to the Office or Cell Site), Session Internet Protocol (SIP) trunking, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Dedicated Internet Access Services (DIA).
 
“Frontier's investment in multi-service ROADM technology in Ohio enables us to give customers the latest broadband technology and increased network speeds,” said Dave Davidson, Ohio Senior Vice President and General Manager. “Our ROADM network will also serve as a platform to dramatically expand the availability of broadband in our service areas across the state over the next two years. We’re very excited about our new network performance and the reliable, higher Internet speeds that we can now deliver in these areas.”
 
Frontier’s High-Speed Internet service is delivered on dedicated lines from the company’s central switching office to the customer’s home or business.  The service is supported by local technicians and backed by live, 24/7, 100-percent U.S.-based customer service and technical support.
 
New residential customers ordering Frontier’s High-Speed Internet services are offered two-hour appointment windows during which a trained technician will install a Frontier wireless router, connect the customer’s computer to the Internet and offer a basic course on how to access and navigate the web.  
 
Customers may also select Frontier SecureSM , a full array of support services that include Internet security, technical support and online data backup. 
 
For more information, residential and business consumers may call 1-877-462-8188 or visit http://www.frontier.com to check their eligibility or to place orders.
