Connect America Fund Phase II Frontier Communications Build-Out Commitments

In June 2015, Frontier Communications became the first local telephone company to accept Connect America Fund Phase II subsidies from the Federal Communications Commissions. Over the next six years, $1.7 billion will fund the upgrade of Frontier networks to over 650,000 home and business locations in 28 states. The maps on this page demonstrate the areas in Frontier service territories in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, South Carolina, and Tennessee (states with active Connected Nation community broadband programs) that are targeted for these upgrades.

Connect America Fund Phase II and Frontier’s commitment represent the largest single federal effort to expand broadband infrastructure in history. Targeted areas were identified by using data gathered through Connected Nation’s State Broadband Initiative in these states. Over the next six years, Frontier will be required to build out fixed voice and broadband networks offering speeds of 10 Mbps download/
1 Mbps upload to designated locations in these identified areas.

For more information on CAF Phase II and Frontier’s commitment, see the Connected Nation policy brief. For additional policy briefs outlining the Connect America Fund subsidies, see
