Customer service is good but I never seem to get the speeds I pay for.
Frontier does not have reliable internet. We did not have are internet a week and it was of a whole day. Times before it was off 1 week to 2 weeks and It seems to be a normal thing and it's not even cool. I don't recommend this provider. We don't pay for are internet to be off.
