Frontier, Hughes to provide satellite broadband services


Frontier Communications Corp., a provider of communications services focused on rural America, has announced it has signed a wholesale agreement with Hughes Network Systems LLC and its broadband satellite networks and services.

Frontier will distribute satellite-based broadband services, branded Frontier Broadband, that will deliver dramatically increased speed and capacity to several hundred thousand households and small businesses within markets previously unserved or underserved by broadband providers.

It will be billed along with other Frontier services on the customer’s monthly bill and eligible for bundle discounts.

Frontier Broadband products are owned and managed by Frontier Communications and supported by installation, customer service and support teams.

“We are very excited to offer this new, high-performance broadband Internet service to unserved rural areas,” said Greg Stephens, Frontier senior vice president Indiana. “It will provide an excellent level of service not previously available and will enhance the quality of life of our customers.”

Frontier Broadband will leverage the Hughes EchoStar XVII Satellite with JUPITER High-Throughput Technology that was successfully launched into space on July 5, and which will enable HughesNet Gen4 satellite Internet services for Frontier Broadband customers. HughesNet Gen4 offers increased performance and capacity, including support for high-bandwidth applications such as streaming video and music.

“Frontier has been investing tens of millions of dollars annually in Indiana to expand the availability of broadband across its footprint,” said Marc Evans, Frontier general manager, Terre Haute.

“Even though we have spent millions upgrading our Indiana operations, it is not feasible to reach every single household with a wired solution. A superior satellite broadband option for those customers will change that.”
