Promotions and Charges

When your term contract reaches the expiration date, the promotional discounts you received also expire. Your service will then bill at our everyday low monthly rate. The promotional discount and expiration date is shown in the ‘Monthly Service Charge’ section of your bill.

There are several conditions that could cause your bill to vary. Examples include:


  • A promotion ending
  • Billing adjustments
  • Changes in your service resulting in a one-time fee
  • One time fees; for example - PayPerView, VideoOnDemand, Tolls or Long Distance, Late payment charges, Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF)
  • Partial month charges or a credit for a change made in the middle of your bill cycle

Please note: Tax charges can vary slightly depending on the number of days in the month. We will notify you about any upcoming rate changes on your bill.


For more information, watch our video on why your bill might be higher than expected.

Service Disconnection and Account Closure

You could receive up to three separate bills over the next 90 days. First, your regular monthly bill, which is your last bill for service. Second, a closing bill which may include a disconnect fee, any partial month charges, unpaid balances and early termination fees. Third, bill that could include applicable credits, refunds and unreturned equipment fees/credits.

Frontier services are billed on a monthly subscription basis and a full month in advance. When you cancel your video and/or internet services, any early termination fees will be effective on the last day of your Frontier billing cycle. No partial month credits or refunds will be provided for previously billed video and internet services. Some voice services may be pro-rated based on your disconnection date. You may also be charged a disconnect fee.

Any equipment that needs to be returned will be listed at the bottom of your Disconnect Service Order Confirmation email. You will receive an additional email/text with a unique QR code. Please take the equipment to the closest UPS store for shipment and show them your unique QR code. Be sure to get a receipt.


If you have any Frontier equipment that doesn't need to be returned, please recycle it at your nearest recycling center.


Equipment must be returned within 30 days. If Frontier has not received the required equipment within that time, you will be charged up to $150 for each unreturned device.

If you cancel service before the end of a special promotional offer, you are responsible for paying any applicable Early Termination Fees. The promotional discount and expiration date is shown in the ‘Monthly Service Charge’ section of your bill.

Deposits or credits will be applied to your account before we issue a refund . Refunds between $5 and $500 dollars will be issued as a pre-paid Mastercard. Amounts over $500 will be issued as a check mailed to your billing address.

Understanding My Bill

If a payment is not received by the billing due date, you may be charged a late fee. Late payment fees are located under the ‘Other Service Charges and Credits’ section of your bill. Avoid late payment fees, by enrolling in Auto Pay.

You may incur a partial-month charge when you start a new service or change services prior to your bill date. This means your next bill may include the extra days of service in addition to a full month of service.

Credits or adjustments should appear on the bill following the date credits or adjustments were issued to your account.

Sign into My Account. You'll find your 17-digit account number and PIN at the top right under “Key Account Information.” On the paper bill, your account number and PIN are located at the top left under “Account Summary.”
