Dallas-based telecom giant Frontier Communications announced that it’s partnering with eero, an Amazon company, to provide its customers the fastest Wi-Fi possible.
Frontier—which announced its relocation from Connecticut to Dallas in September—said its customers are increasingly opting for multigigabit speeds, so to meet the demand, it’s pairing its top fiber technology with eero’s first mesh Wi-Fi 7 system to provide “the fastest, most reliable Wi-Fi available” throughout customers’ homes.
“Once again, Frontier is leading the pack,” Frontier EVP of Consumer John Harrobin said in a statement. “We’re one of the first internet providers to bring the newest eero Wi-Fi 7 router directly to our customers to support their multi-gig speeds.”
“This is about enabling our customers to take full advantage of our fiber internet in every corner of their homes so that they can do even more, faster—things like remote work and online learning to telehealth and gaming,” Harrobin added. “We’re continuing to set new standards for speed and reliability and delivering customers the internet experience that they deserve.”
More data at faster speeds
Frontier said it will begin deploying Amazon’s eero Max 7 next week and will roll it out to customers across the company’s footprint in 2024.
The company said the new eero Max 7, the fastest and most powerful eero system to date, uses the latest Wi-Fi 7 technology to give customers more bandwidth and lower latency.
It’s an all-new class of eero that optimizes customers’ Wi-Fi experience by routing data through the fastest path in the network and limiting interference. It’s said to provide a fast, reliable internet experience in every room and the ability to take advantage of multi-gigabit speeds up to 10 gigabits per second.
Frontier said its fiber internet, leveraging the eero Max 7, will provide customers with “the extremely fast, low-latency connectivity they will need for years to come.”
“We’re thrilled to work with Frontier to deliver some of the fastest speeds ever experienced with eero Max 7,” eero co-founder and CEO Nick Weaver said in a statement. “Coupled with Frontier’s blazing-fast fiber, the eero Max 7 and eero’s TrueMesh technology dramatically increases speeds, avoids interference from neighboring networks and delivers super fast and reliable Wi-Fi connectivity.”
Frontier’s new home in Dallas
Frontier announced in September that it was moving its headquarters to Uptown Dallas from Connecticut. The company is investing in a new 95,000-square-foot office space—which it calls “the GigaHub”—in Uptown.
Frontier said that the relocation is projected to boost the Dallas and Texas economies by $3.8 billion and secure more than 3,000 jobs in the Dallas area over the next 10 years.
The company is the largest pure-play fiber provider in the U.S.
San Francisco-based eero was founded in 2014 to make Wi-Fi and networking that’s “fast, reliable, secure, and built for the future.” The company is known for award-winning hardware and software and continues to create connectivity solutions for individuals, businesses, communities, and service providers.
