Mayor praises Frontier for 1-gigabit service speed upgrade

Digital service provider connects to 26,000 homes in Beaverton

Cable TV and Internet service provider Frontier Communications recently announced 1 gigabit speeds are now available to residences in select Beaverton neighborhoods.

Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle recently met with Jeanne Danielson, Frontier's general manager of Washington and Yamhill Counties, to congratulate the company on bringing 1 gigabit speeds to select Beaverton neighborhoods. With more than 26,000 homes in Beaverton capable of receiving what Frontier calls the "hyper fast speed," Doyle’s constituency is the first Oregon community to feature this attribute.

“The city is proud to support Frontier Communications,” Doyle said. “We’re honored to be the first in their FiOS serviceable footprint to make broadband download speeds of up to 1-gigabyte available to our community.”

At 1,000 megabits per second, gigabit speeds are about 100 times faster than most Internet connections today. Frontier already offers broadband speeds up to 100 megabits to households in its FiOS footprint, which includes Beaverton, Forest Grove, Gresham, Hillsboro, McMinnville, Newberg, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin and Wilsonville.

“Beaverton was the logical place to start with gigabit service,” said Jeanne Danielson, Frontier general manager for Washington and Yamhill counties. “We have a solid relationship with the mayor, the City Council and Beaverton residents. This area has a significant concentration of high-tech employees who want faster speeds, and we are delivering.”
