Frontier Communications (NASDAQ:FTR) is introducing symmetrical gigabit Internet service in its FiOS and Vantage Fiber markets, and is also increasing its new consumer broadband offer to a symmetrical 200 Mbps, and adding higher speed tiers previously not offered in Indiana, Oregon and Washington (symmetrical 300 Mbps).

The company's newest offers feature triple- or double-play services as well as standalone broadband service. Pricing will be the same with or without a contract.

"Frontier is pleased to now offer a 200/200 Mbps service, the fastest, most efficient introductory broadband service available in our markets, plus eye-popping speed and capacity with our FiOS Gigabit for the home," said John Maduri, Frontier's executive vice president and chief customer officer.

"Speed and reliability are hallmarks of FiOS Fiber broadband service," Maduri said. "Two-way speeds over our all-fiber network make Internet tasks faster and more efficient, regardless of the time of day, while also enabling the many connected devices and streaming services in the home to work simultaneously and smoothly."

Frontier is also introducing its Frontier Wi-Fi EveryWare program, which includes a signal strength analysis and WiFi extenders if needed to work in conjunction with the router to improve coverage. Frontier Wi-Fi EveryWare comes at no charge for new customers taking the current offer for one year.

Frontier's all-fiber FiOS network is available to approximately 1.4 million households in the Tampa Bay region in six counties along the central west coast of Florida, including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

FiOS by Frontier is also offered in parts of southern California, Dallas, Indiana, Oregon and Washington. Vantage Fiber is offered in parts of Connecticut, North Carolina and Minnesota.
