FierceTelecom reports AT&T strikes wholesale fiber deal with Frontier to chase enterprise gains

From FierceTelecom:

AT&T inked a multi-year fiber connectivity deal with Frontier Communications, aiming to improve its ability to meet the needs of large enterprise customers with locations outside its existing footprint.

Announcing the deal, AT&T highlighted Frontier’s recently unveiled plan to expand its fiber network to a total of 4 million locations passed by the end of 2021 and 10 million by 2025. While 9 million business locations are already within 1,000 feet of AT&T’s fiber, it noted the new agreement will allow it to serve enterprise customers within Frontier’s 25-state footprint in “markets where it does not own a fiber network or currently plan to build one.”

An AT&T representative told Fierce the deal also includes “modifications of existing AT&T/Frontier wholesale agreements that improve the ability of Frontier to expand its network through AT&T Ethernet and Fiber connections.”

Scott Mair, AT&T’s president of network engineering and operations, said in a statement “with Frontier building out its own fiber network where we are not building, we’ll be able to work together to provide large business customers with the high-speed, low-latency data connectivity they need to grow and thrive.”
