Frontier started offering Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) internet services in rural and suburban U.S. markets in 2008. In 2014, Frontier acquired additional network coverage from Verizon, including fiber network areas. Frontier now markets its fiber services as Frontier Fiber. Frontier offers the most fiber coverage in Alabama, Arizona, and California.
As a DSL provider, one of Frontier’s strengths is its widespread rural availability, since rural households usually have access to the twisted copper phone lines needed for DSL connections. Frontier DSL services are particularly widespread in Alabama, Arizona, and California.

Frontier Internet Speeds
Frontier networks consist of its standard DSL network and its newer fiber-optic network. The main difference is that DSL runs significantly slower than fiber. However, Frontier has been building out more fiber backbone in recent years and boosting the overall speed and bandwidth of DSL connections.
