"Congratulations and thank you to Chairman Pai and the Commission for dedicating $16 billion to rural broadband over the next decade with today’s vote on the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund. Designing a reverse auction for broadband funding is no easy undertaking, and this Order will greatly expand access to next-generation digital technologies and opportunities. Thank you especially to Commissioner Carr for his work ensuring that more scarce dollars are directed towards putting capital in the ground, ensuring robust participation in the auction, and incentivizing accelerated deployment. Frontier looks forward to evaluating this exciting opportunity."

"Frontier Communications applauds Representatives Anna Eshoo and Steve Scalise for introducing the Modern Television Act of 2019, meaningful bipartisan legislation to address outdated retransmission consent laws. This bill is thoughtful and comprehensive, identifying solutions that will allow our customers to have the video content they choose at affordable prices."

"Frontier applauds the Federal Communications Commission's proposed decision to adopt counties as the license size for the 3.5 GHz CBRS Auction. While Frontier believes that smaller license sizes, such as census tracts, could better promote rural broadband deployment, counties represent a reasonable compromise based on all of the competing considerations."
