TERRE HAUTE — Frontier Communications has announced that a $12 million investment in the company’s network will benefit customers in the company’s southwest Indiana market.

The benefits include a more redundant and stable network environment to minimize disruptions to the company’s facilities and inconveniences for Frontier’s customers. Frontier’s systems have been redesigned to ensure that the network continues to function in the presence of structure failure, as in the case of a fiber cut or other physical damage to the network.

“As we were engineering our network for increased redundancy, one of our goals was to eliminate network downtime caused by a single point of failure,” said Greg Stephens, Frontier senior vice president and general manager of Indiana operations. “ We have worked to increase reliability through the selection of equipment, and engineering of our network so that it operates within a wide array of conditions and environments.”
