Fiber broadband provider Frontier is investing $800 million to bring broadband to more than 800,000 homes and business in Connecticut by the end of 2025.

The company is deploying more than 1,000 people to the project areas, which include Windsor Locks, East Windsor and Stafford Springs.

“Connecticut is a key part of Building Gigabit America. We’re proud to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to build critical digital infrastructure across the state,” Frontier’s Chief Network Officer Veronica Bloodworth said in a press release. “Our superior fiber technology will deliver a reliable digital experience that will serve Connecticut for generations to come.”

The company says that it has brought fiber to more than 500,000 homes and businesses in The Nutmeg State since 2020. The build has involved more than 70 communities.

Frontier’s relationship with Connecticut has not always been so rosy. In September, the company agreed to pay more than $60 million and rework policies and practices in a settlement of an investigation by the state’s attorney general and the Department of Consumer Protection into hidden charges and other allegations.

Frontier has had a strong focus on broadband since it emerged from bankruptcy on April 20, 2021. It has a goal of reaching 10 million locations with fiber by 2025, a goal that is on track according to an investor briefing by CEO Nick Jeffery in September.

Frontier says it now offers 2 Gbps symmetrical service wherever it has fiber. The announcement – made in February – says that the service costs $149.99 per month.

The carrier saw it’s return to broadband growth for the first time in the past 5 years during the fourth quarter of last year.
