For the last several months Durham and the Triangle have been in the news regarding an explosion of providers planning to offer 1 Gigabit Fiber to residential customers.  Frontier has been leading the charge in Durham since last fall, and over the past five years has invested millions to increase broadband speeds in the area market.

Much of that investment has been to drive Fiber further into the network and upgrade the backhaul to be able to handle the increased demands.  These investments have enabled Frontier to increase speed capabilities over the traditional network up to 25 MBPS for over 73,000 households in Durham and surrounding areas.

Frontier’s efforts are making it possible to essentially jump on the high-speed internet highway from your home, subdivision, and office.
