Frontier's customer service is absolute garbage! The actual internet works perfectly fine, and I've rarely had outages, but that being said, it's totally not worth it to deal with their customer service department. Billing is nearly always wrong and you HAVE to call to get anything fixed. It usually takes 6-8 calls over the same issue to finally get it resolved.
