Frontier cable is coming to the UK and is the latest in a growing list of broadband providers to roll out cable boxes.
The move by Frontier will bring the number of internet providers that offer high-speed broadband to more than 50% of the population in the UK.
The UK has long been an internet-first nation and this is a big step in that direction.
It is also part of a new strategy for the company that has seen it offer faster internet speeds for customers with more than a gigabyte of data a month.
Frontier’s chief executive officer Steve Waddell said in a statement that he was “delighted” to be part of the company’s “fast, reliable and reliable future”.
“It’s about delivering a new and better way of connecting people around the world and helping them to live their lives online, and I’m excited to be working with Frontier to make this happen,” he said.
A total of 14,000 Frontier customers have signed up for broadband plans since January, and the company says that it has more than 4,000 fibre optic cables already installed.
It is working with a number of international broadband providers including BT, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile.
“It is our ambition to connect everyone in the world in the future with the internet we already have,” Waddel said.
The announcement comes as many major UK cities are also preparing to switch to fibre-optic internet, which is expected to deliver speeds of up to 25 megabits per second.”
In addition to our fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, we will be bringing the highest-speed, most secure, and most cost-effective fibre network to the most remote areas of the world to deliver the internet to people who do not yet have access to the fastest broadband available.”
