Barbara GRANT Newbury Park, CA

Having horrible experiences with Frontier. Used to be FIOS - they were very responsive. After change to Frontier we called to order new multi-room DVRs. Couldn't find our account for the first 4 weeks while the conversion was happening. When they finally found it in week 4, the rep was very obtuse and confused about my account info (they had the wrong phone number on it). At the end of the call, the rep told me he needed my FULL SS# and DOB to process the order. WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE?? NO ONE should be asking for this info. He refused to process the order without my giving him the info. I gave it reluctantly and under protest, and he gave me his name and told me there was no supervisor to speak to. A week ago, I called because I had a question about my new bill, and they again couldn't find my account (still had the wrong phone number). I had to give them my name and address and they finally found it. The bill amount was incorrect as it turned out. He apologized that they had needed my FULL SS# to process the order, and I told them that if that was their standard procedure, I wanted OUT of the relationship now. He said that was only required on the first service upgrade call. We'll see. When I asked about what Frontier would do for all my inconvenience, the rep said he was sorry. I asked for at least a $25 credit to the account for all the time i was having to waste, and he said it would be applied on my next bill. I should have asked for a whole month free! My order date for install is today, and the "window" they gave me was from 8 AM - 5 PM. It's now 3 PM and there is no sign of an installer and no one is calling me to tell me when they are coming. I've been home all day. I called to find out what the status was and the lines were so garbled, I had to call 2x and got disconnected both times. No one has called me back. This is outrageous. I had renewed my 2 year contract with FIOS in Feb. 2016 but would have NEVER done it if I had known that Frontier was taking over. At this point, we are frustrated and have spent over 2 hours on the phone with several people trying to get answers, service and help. My advice is to sever your relationship with Frontier ASAP. and to advise others to do the same.

Horrible California change over! I literally spent almost 2 hours on hold a week or so, 3 different calls and then finally, so I thought, was being transferred to the correct department......poof I was disconnected. Terrible! The first 2 calls the service personnel I could just barely understand, I truly tried, but obviously English was not their first language. Every statement was "canned and planned" there was no intelligent interaction, forcing me to repeat myself, slowly over and over. The members were clueless. Incredibly frustrating, then disconnecting me, really? and I was being very polite and nice, for I assumed no calls they were getting were pleasant? I did try to ask them where I was calling, and obviously they have been instructed to avoid this answer. I literally had to ask, after receiving ridiculous answers to my very clear questions. "So you are in a chair, correct? That chair is in an office, correct? Where would that chair & office be located, if you looked at Google maps?" Finally, after literally 5 minutes of trying to find out where my calls were going the last guy stated, "The Philippines." I really don't care and tried to interact with him, and finally he promised he would get me to the correct person, poof he put me on hold, actually came back 3 times to apologize, wonderful young man BTW and then after 18 minutes on hold, click, a busy signal and I was disconnected. Just wasted 1 hour and 54 minutes trying to get answers. Now my Fios TV is terrible, and worse, what was blazing fast internet has slowed so badly, my three desktop computers and multiple mobile devices run like the 90's speed. So I again tried to call and same thing, clueless representatives, long, long wait times to no resolve, nothing. Then I get a bill for over $500 dollars, stating my past debit, but no detail, no breakdown and....I tried to call again, with this huge bill containing charges for May. This time endless recordings stating, "Due to a large call volume......" Terrible, but I waited on speaker phone for over an hour this past Friday, afternoon, and eventually just hanging up. Then just now I get a huge bill from Verizon, trying to collect what Frontier just sent me too! Holly cow, were talking absolute stupidity and a complete lack of internal communication, no wonder they cant properly take care of their client base, they are clueless internally. Now today, if it could be worse, my internet speed on the hardwired systems, only now trying to use one, is so bad, I keep getting error messages and loading issues, with GMail usage. Really, almost 3 minutes for the UPS tracking site to load from an email link? Very frustrating, for FOIS used to be smoking fast, me being previously at 50/50, seeing how fast it really was and downgrading to 20/20. Still true speed, faster than my offices system and all cable. Fiber optic super line, now, its almost as bad as my neighbors older direct TV connection. What a shame. Horrible customer service, clueless representatives, long hold times, huge unexplained invoices and here I am, forced to vent on this site. I truly want to stay with the fiber optic system, or should I say how it was, but teamed with horrific customer service, terrible TV service, my phone list of 87 previous "blocked solicitor" numbers being deleted, only now to be pounded by them calling again, the internet speed and a snail speed........terrible! This should be a crime. Verizon FIOS used to be incredible, Frontier has destroyed this. There is no excuse for not being ready for a merger like this, none! Sadly, my entire block is looking to switch. The neighborhood has Time Warner vans and other services driving everywhere. I see it as sad and funny, how could a company blow something so badly? Destroying awesome services, so quickly and without and guidance, help or communication with their subscribers. Is this "acceptable loss" for Frontier? As with all business mergers and of takeovers, there is an expected loss, but really, entire neighborhoods? What a huge fail!

I switched to frontier after getting fed up worn my local cable provider. The TV part of the package was great but the internet was not what was promised. I was very clear when switching that I was looking for fiber optic high speed internet needed for my husbands work, and I was told that was what I was getting. After the installation was complete and I was having issues with the upload speed it was confirmed that fiber optic wasn’t available in my area and they had installed DSL. I unfortunately ended up having to switch back to cable.

I've had frontier internet for over 3 years now, the speeds are fast with the 500 down and 500 up package. There are a few things that I didn't like though.. 1) when you use your own router they still charge a $10 router rental fee. 2) after your contract is up you can't sign up for the newest promotion.

Frontier increased my bill. I canceled but then I had to pay $50 to return their old equipment. Also, I canceled on May 10th but I still had to pay for the entire month of May. If you have the option do not use them as your provider.

I called June 26th to get internet hook up the soonest they could come out was July 10. July 10th a technician came out and said they needed the bucket to reach the pole they would be out later that afternoon. They never showed so the 11th I called and was told they would be out that day, they never showed. When I called they tried making me take another appointment in a week! I said no they need to do their job when it says. I even answered their text saying they would be here. Then the customer service representative hung up on me. So much for the costumer being right.

If you lose internet for 3 days… all they’ll do is give you a $5 credit. At least with AT&T, the technician came out the very next day. They increase your rates almost monthly and when you get tired of it and cancel, THATS when they try to win you back with a lower price (after disconnect). Then they go right back to hiking your prices a few dollars every month. If you work from home, there are definitely cheaper providers out there. All this is to say, I miss AT&T and how at least they offered a $50 credit when my internet went out for a day.

If you want to chase your bill each month because they are always adding additional fees, you should sign with Frontier Internet. They cannot be trusted to sign up with auto billing. They constantly change your billing price calling it promotions have expired. They are stupid! They could keep customers by charging everyone the same price by speed requirements. The management team and marketing team should all be fired! No wonder they filed for bankruptcy.

Twice now on 2 occasions I had technical issues with my connections. Both times I had an appointment and was given a 4 hour window when the technician would show up. Both times i waited more than the 4 hours, both times the technician NEVER showed up. My internet modem is working but has a red light on it and my download speed is much slower than the service I am paying for. I will be looking for another provider as soon as possible.

Heads up neighbors, if you use Frontier, be ready to waste a couple hours of your time cancelling your account. They set up their system to get new customers in and taken care of quickly but if you want to cancel they make you spend hours. There is no workaround. They had decent service, but never again will they have my money. If you detest companies that make quitting services purposely painful, perhaps you should be aware of these tactics.

I would give them no stars if possible. What they call high speed dsl is far slower than when all we had was dial-up. I can't stream on my high end gaming PC and go on the web at the same time, it slows down so much that it buffers and stops. I'm trying to download a game update of 60gb, it will take almost a week because the highest download speed is 5mbs.

Pay $70 a month for internet that doesn't exceed 6MB down per second, and that's during a speed test. During an actual download, I've never seen speeds above 750KB/s. Abhorrent customer service, directed straight to a person across the world, when they have an office in my town. Horribly unreliable, have had bouts of it going out incessantly for days on end on multiple occasion.

Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Tried to sign up "on line", they say there is technical difficulties, call customer service. I called their customer service number three different times to sign up but they couldn't verify my credit worthiness. Each time I called it was like I never spoke with them before and had to give them all my information all over again. They still couldn't (wouldn't} verify my credit and required a $70 deposit to verify credit worthiness. NO way no how will I ever be a Frontier customer!

Do you miss dial-up internet? Then this is the company for you. I paid for 1,000 mb/s service but actually received 0.05 mb/s service. Don't worry the other advantage of their internet services is you get to "Netflix and chill" like in the old days before streaming. So bust out that dvd collection for your girl because you won't even make it to the homepage of any streaming site with their services.

Frontier is absolutely garbage. They have a geographic monopoly here and because they have no competition they won't fix their service! Our internet commonly goes out for nearly the whole day, on average it's out at least 5 hours a day if not more. We keep losing internet for about a week, it was two weeks of almost no internet about a month ago (and of course I was told they don't have the equipment to fix it but my family was still charged the full amount.) They finally sent a new router after my family having been asking for 2 years, they told us it would fix the problem. It didn't.

Con: --Paying for 500/500 and rarely see 10%/5% of that--wired (running Google Nest wireless and when the bandwidth is good, the G. Next works great)(three users in house, 4 cameras connected). I would be extremely happy paying for 500/500 and getting 250/250 consistently. I used to see 500/500+ regularly during the off hours (late night)--now I don't even see it in the off hours. As soon as an alternative exists, I'm dumping Frontier!

Frontier is the absolute worst internet provider. They have terrible speeds and I get less than half of the download speeds I am supposed to get. Generally I get downloading speeds of around 500Kbs a second which is absolutely horrible. The internet goes out several times a day every single day of the week. It is ridiculous how bad this internet service is. They won’t ever do anything to fix it either because they are the only option where I live. If you have any other options definitely choose the one that is not frontier.

If I could rate the company a zero, I would. I called the company even times and spent hours attempting to get service. I got to the point where they said that they needed to send me equipment via UPS. They have no offices in any location closer than 400 miles away. I called and cancelled / closed the account. They charged me $27.77 for this. I paid so that I never have to deal with them again.

Terrible!! Constant service issues. It's rare to go 1 day without having the internet go down at least several times throughout the day. Normally it goes down several times an hour all day long. It doesn't stay down, just disconnects and causes the router to reboot. Customer service is a joke, always repeating the same things like reboot the router, move the router, everything looks good, the next available appointment for a tech is 2-3 WEEKS from now. Yes, it's cheaper than Spectrum but it's basically worthless! Save yourself the headache, go anywhere but here!

Service is often interrupted. Internet speed promised is on average 45% of plan sometimes being less than 10%.. Service men are friendly and appear they know what they are doing but indicated the system is in need of significant repair which has been forwarded to management with no actions taken. If there were any other options I would drop Frontier services in a heartbeat. If fact no service is better than poor, often interrupted service.

Awful is an understatement. I was told since they have "over-provisioned" their hardware the engineering "will get to it". Fast forward 8 months and not only the issue is not fixed (as in having 500/500 but getting 1/3 IF it is even connecting to the net) but they try to sell you even more services/products.

Frontier was here in August to diagnose a broken wire and was told it would be a month to 7 weeks to fix . We are now a the last of December and have no internet service. Just get the run around about getting the repair done. They do not service, just collect money and do not care if you have service or not. Problem is they are the only provider choice I have!

Equipment is unsupported junk from Netgear. Customer service, if you can even understand what they're saying, from India and is horrible. Advertised speeds are just that, advertised. Real world speeds are 75% or less. Supposedly the company is filing Ch. 11 in 2020, which will things worse. They've been sued multiple times over their services and advertising (Michigan AG & West Virginia AD come to mind) and have lost each time. This company makes GTE look good which is unbelievable.

WORST service ever! If I could give this a zero star I would. Internet goes out at least once a week, often times more than that. I called and cancelled service and went with Xfinity and love having RELIABLE service once again. They wanted to charge me for breaking the contract of service I have for two years, but THEY broke the contract by not providing consant service which I was paying for.
