This service started out with Verizon several years ago (hence my installation reviews partly reflect Verizon's earlier stewardship), and was bought up a couple of years ago by Frontier. DSL and POTS under Frontier have remained mostly on a par with the previous Verizon level - that is, fairly good, although there seem to be occasional spells when the Frontier DSL system goes into a deaf/dumb mode for minutes at a time when I'm trying to access sites on the Internet, even though the modem shows things supposedly being OK. Also, there are unrelated sporadic problems with POTS heavy line noise/static (caused by cracks in the aging copper) that interfere with the phone service, but not the DSL running at a higher frequency. The copper lines to this area are old and poorly maintained (dating back to Verizon's ownership, when little physical line maintenance was done - now those chickens are coming home to roost under Frontier's ownership, after strong winds or heavy rains).
The service still remains priced at $14.95/mo "for life," as originally contracted with Verizon.
