Frontier taps Nokia for Connecticut rollout

26 May 2017

Frontier Communications has enlisted Nokia to help it deploy technology to increase in-building broadband speeds for customers living in apartments and Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs) across Connecticut. The rollout, which forms part of a state-wide network expansion initiative, seeks to bring fibre-like speeds to the telco’s customers, without having to install new, in-building fibre infrastructure. The access type has built-in vectoring technology, which reduces the ‘cross-talk interference’ that typically impacts data speeds over copper networks.

Steve Gable, Frontier’s EVP and CTO, commented: ‘Nokia’s field-proven solution will help Frontier quickly bring ultra-broadband access to customers by using the existing copper twisted pair wiring that is often found in apartment buildings. Without it, we’d have to drill holes and pull fibre into each apartment unit we serve, a time consuming and challenging process that can be frustrating for customers.’
