we're experiencing numerous interruptions during movies, programs so we called frontier's help line and was told we would be contacted on monday (it was sunday afternoon) by their technical support.
we asked the frontier representative to add a phone number to our account so they would have another way to contact us when responding to our complaint. additionally we inquired about a reduced rate on our service due to an offer we received from one of their competitors. the frontier attendant acknowledged everything we asked for, took our information down and promised to forward it to the people who would deal with our issues, adding she would verify something was being done on our behalf. when we asked what we could do in the event frontier failed to respond as she indicated, she added that she would contact us to confirm we'd been helped.
in as much as i was in some disbelief over how this frontier employee handled our complaint, i was left with the impression this person was really on the ball and that hopefully she would make good on her promises. we had been very civil in our complaint and thorough in giving her all the information she asked for. (i even commented to my girlfriend on how nice and professional the frontier attendant had been to me, given it was sunday and i wasn't even expecting anyone to answer our call).
well, as all of the other customers have complained before me, not one of the actions promised us by frontier were carried out! i don't want to sound naive here but i typically take someone at their word until they prove otherwise. realizing the circumstances regarding the timing of our complaint and how it seemed unrealistic they would actually respond the next day (as sunday's attendant promised), i gave frontier the benefit of the doubt and waited till that wednesday before i decided to call again as the reality of another disappointment was apparent!
what frontier may not be aware of is we were careful to document everything discussed during that sunday call and even the follow-up call so that in the eventuality frontier would behave as they apparently have with numerous other customers, we would be fully prepared to pursue recourse against this corrupt so called "provider".
finally, i suggest any and all of those customers, present and past, take time to make the fcc aware of the abusive treatment frontier is obviously capable of and how they obviously have contempt for those of us who only want fair treatment and honest service.

no company should be this bad. i called, was disconnected twice so i looked on line. saw a chat line, but what do you know, it didn't work. tried to email but all it would allow me to do is make a phone appointment. tried a third time and got a person again, but due to her system lagging, the phone call is taking a long time. great way to run a business with equipment and services that don't work.

plus for them, the blood bath is about to happen on 02/28 /17 when they are reporting earnings.

trust me on this one, they are about to get their clocked clean. plus there is a serious rumour that a knight in shining armor, and grab it all for 5 billion. that is 5.8 billion less than these morons paid for the copper lines in 3 states. and this does not include the major mistake they make in 2012 buying ll of the copper in the midwest, and they are losing their shirt in that area as well.

i have been waiting 3 months to have frontier bury my fios cable. literally, every time i call they act like its the first time i have called. i'm on my 20th call with them and each call wastes 30 minutes to 1 hour. they ran my cable across the top of my neighbors drive way. i told them that was a bad idea but they did it anyway. as you can guess, my neighbors car broke the cable when it got wound up in their tires. i was out of cable/tv/internet for a week. i wish i had changed to direct tv!!!

frontier is the rotting dead carcass of the good company they killed through a buy-out.

we had frontier, internet was 3 mbps and the balance of bandwidth from the modem was total shit. aka. 1 pc got 100% of the speed at any time instead of even distribution.

switched to comcast and it was like magic, but expensive and really really fast magic.

now because comcast is getting more expensive, we switched to frontier again to save money, as it is the only other option, and guess what? it is (if i can put it into an accurate quanitity), 3x as shit as it was before.

chatting cust. support and a single support rep changed their excuse three times about why the internet (suppose to have 7 mbps) was only 0.5 mbps. ffs either they straight up lie or they say that they aren't told anything. what the f%@k is the point of support if you don't know shit.

customer support = emotional support for the loss of your money

if you have other options for an isp besides frontier, and even if it is a little more expensive, get it instead. it's like choosing between expired bread and moldy bread soaked in piss.

i was happy with my verizon fios until frontier took over. service has gone done extremely. too bad i cannot get verizon back looking for an alternative now. any suggestions? live in northern los angeles. is there any other fios provider?
list of issues:
1. internet speed dropped without any changes in equipment except that frontier handles my fios now.
2. pixelation in my dvr, never happened with verizon. again no equipment change.
3. pixelation on live tv.
4. some hd channels are unwatchable. example, spike tv.

frontier may be the most insensitive company i have seen recently in handling of their customers. i wish i could say my previous experience was better, but it was not. this new experience... it took two hours to get the account moved, the tech showed up without calling and left within five minutes. internet did not work as soon as he left and cannot get any help back for days...and i am now sitting on the phone for 30 minutes and no one is answering. yet this is the only provider in one of the nicest cities and communities in north dallas??? anyone know who at the state government level to call and try to break up this incompetent monopoly?

online filing with fcc
this is link to get something done from the feds.
fcc will send you a case and confirmation number usually just a few hours after they receive your complaint. they send it off to the legal department. you will receive a call. tell them what you want, anything within reason. they will audit your account to see exactly who you talked to and where they are located. they are cleaning house to get rid of call center idiots that do not follow procedure. they are tired of hearing about all of the liars within their company.
it only takes a few minutes to file. this is the only way to get satisfaction and that is to hit them in the pocketbook. they do get fined thousands of dollars for each and every case that the fcc finds them responsible for bad service.
california has more complaints than any other state with florida coming in 2nd.

frontier legal department 811-877-433-3806 ext1033. ask for sheree. tired of all the crap talking to contractors across the country, then call this number. especially good if you have contacted the fcc, as this is the department that deals with them. in texas, frontier recently laid off over 200 real employees to higher more contractors from empereon (texas) to work out of their homes! as contracts run out from verizon cwa (communication workers of america) these employees will not have the protection of a union for bargaining. ibew ( international brotherhood of electrical workers) in areas of southern california affected as well. this is a union busting organization. online chat now going to manila in the phillipines. don't use them as they are totally useless. waiting time in southern california is now 5 days for the simple of repairs @ fios digital calling, router not functioning, anything!!! noone should have to wait more than a few hours to get something care of, 5 days is intolerable.

los angeles counth, california, still waiting for an update or any information whatsoever on the outage in the los angeles county area. customer service reps alternate between "it's an outage or a common cause outage" and " it's everyone's set top boxes not receiving the signals." denying there is an outage doesn't work when their own outage map shows this huge disruption in service. for some neighbors this has been going on anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. one neighbor on the list serve wrote "ours is still out for two weeks with a few calls in to them. nothing worked. even after getting new boxes and remotes our cable does not work. they say we now need to hire someone to check the cable connections. ugh! i am tired of this."
in addition to bills going up every month as well as these constant outages, it's like pulling teeth to get any information or even basic truth out of customer service reps. meanwhile, no cable and no internet with no end in sight and no explanation.

@empereon

yeah right. you guys have no clue what you're doing.. empereon operates a reckless call center with little to no oversight from frontier..

you're no more capable than genuine frontier representatives but you care even less.. and i didnt know that was possible.. you abandon calls after long holds.. hangup on customers.. you lie.. you argue.. you're rude and devious.. you put customers on speakerphone so your colleagues in the next cubical can have a great time mocking their frustrations.. you falsely notate accounts.. you provide fake names and fake call center locations.. and you falsely believe your real identity and employer are protected from public inquiry.. your solution to every problem is to schedule a tech... who i might add hardly ever shows up.. and when a customer calls back to complain then you promise to expedite the next dispatch which never actually happens..

your entire operation is the end result of bad business serving bad business in america.. any corporation thinking of hiring empereon for call center solutions should really evaluate their service from a customer service point of view before signing that contract.. unless you want to run your business into the ground..

ive had services with this company for years. never really had any probems other than techs not showing up when they are suppose to. my daughter worked in customer service for this company. it shocked me how customers would call in and talk to the customer service reps. never understood the need to cuss, call vulgar names and blame the reps. its like i told my daughter if someone talks to you like that i wouldnt want to help them either. people just dont know how to act now days. being mean to a customer service rep is like talking crap about a chef as he is cooking your food. not real smart! my daughter no longer works for this company but from the sounds of it there are still a bunch of people out there who dont know how to treat others. my brother has services with another provider and he has issues all the time. ones just as bad as another. i do think this company needs to hire techs who will actually do there jobs and show up when they are suppose to.

according to all known laws
of aviation,


there is no way a bee
should be able to fly.


its wings are too small to get
its fat little body off the ground.


the bee, of course, flies anyway


because bees don't care
what humans think is impossible.


yellow, black. yellow, black.
yellow, black. yellow, black.


ooh, black and yellow!
let's shake it up a little.


barry! breakfast is ready!


ooming!


hang on a second.


hello?


- barry?
- adam?


- oan you believe this is happening?
- i can't. i'll pick you up.


looking sharp.


use the stairs. your father
paid good money for those.


sorry. i'm excited.


here's the graduate.
we're very proud of you, son.


a perfect report card, all b's.


very proud.


ma! i got a thing going here.


- you got lint on your fuzz.
- ow! that's me!


- wave to us! we'll be in row 118,000.
- bye!


barry, i told you,
stop flying in the house!


- hey, adam.
- hey, barry.


- is that fuzz gel?
- a little. special day, graduation.


never thought i'd make it.


three days grade school,
three days high school.


those were awkward.


three days college. i'm glad i took
a day and hitchhiked around the hive.


you did come back different.


- hi, barry.
- artie, growing a mustache? looks good.


- hear about frankie?
- yeah.


- you going to the funeral?
- no, i'm not going.


everybody knows,
sting someone, you die.


don't waste it on a squirrel.
such a hothead.


i guess he could have
just gotten out of the way.


i love this incorporating
an amusement park into our day.


that's why we don't need vacations.


boy, quite a bit of pomp...
under the circumstances.


- well, adam, today we are men.
- we are!


- bee-men.
- amen!


hallelujah!


students, faculty, distinguished bees,


please welcome dean buzzwell.


welcome, new hive oity
graduating class of...


...9:15.


that concludes our ceremonies.


and begins your career
at honex industries!


will we pick ourjob today?


i heard it's just orientation.


heads up! here we go.


keep your hands and antennas
inside the tram at all times.


- wonder what it'll be like?
- a little scary.


welcome to honex,
a division of honesco


and a part of the hexagon group.


this is it!


wow.


wow.


we know that you, as a bee,
have worked your whole life


to get to the point where you
can work for your whole life.


honey begins when our valiant pollen
jocks bring the nectar to the hive.


our top-secret formula


is automatically color-corrected,
scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured


into this soothing sweet syrup


with its distinctive
golden glow you know as...


honey!


- that girl was hot.
- she's my cousin!


- she is?
- yes, we're all cousins.


- right. you're right.
- at honex, we constantly strive


to improve every aspect
of bee existence.


these bees are stress-testing
a new helmet technology.


- what do you think he makes?
- not enough.


here we have our latest advancement,
the krelman.


- what does that do?
- oatches that little strand of honey


that hangs after you pour it.
saves us millions.


oan anyone work on the krelman?


of course. most bee jobs are
small ones. but bees know


that every small job,
if it's done well, means a lot.


but choose carefully


because you'll stay in the job
you pick for the rest of your life.


the same job the rest of your life?
i didn't know that.


what's the difference?


you'll be happy to know that bees,
as a species, haven't had one day off


in 27 million years.


so you'll just work us to death?


we'll sure try.


wow! that blew my mind!


"what's the difference?"
how can you say that?


one job forever?
that's an insane choice to have to make.


i'm relieved. now we only have
to make one decision in life.


but, adam, how could they
never have told us that?


why would you question anything?
we're bees.


we're the most perfectly
functioning society on earth.


you ever think maybe things
work a little too well here?


like what? give me one example.


i don't know. but you know
what i'm talking about.


please clear the gate.
royal nectar force on approach.


wait a second. oheck it out.


- hey, those are pollen jocks!
- wow.


i've never seen them this close.


they know what it's like
outside the hive.


yeah, but some don't come back.


- hey, jocks!
- hi, jocks!


you guys did great!


you're monsters!
you're sky freaks! i love it! i love it!


- i wonder where they were.
- i don't know.


their day's not planned.


outside the hive, flying who knows
where, doing who knows what.


you can'tjust decide to be a pollen
jock. you have to be bred for that.


right.


look. that's more pollen
than you and i will see in a lifetime.


it's just a status symbol.
bees make too much of it.


perhaps. unless you're wearing it
and the ladies see you wearing it.


those ladies?
aren't they our cousins too?


distant. distant.


look at these two.


- oouple of hive harrys.
- let's have fun with them.


it must be dangerous
being a pollen jock.


yeah. once a bear pinned me
against a mushroom!


he had a paw on my throat,
and with the other, he was slapping me!


- oh, my!
- i never thought i'd knock him out.


what were you doing during this?


trying to alert the authorities.


i can autograph that.


a little gusty out there today,
wasn't it, comrades?


yeah. gusty.


we're hitting a sunflower patch
six miles from here tomorrow.


- six miles, huh?
- barry!


a puddle jump for us,
but maybe you're not up for it.


- maybe i am.
- you are not!


we're going 0900 at j-gate.


what do you think, buzzy-boy?
are you bee enough?


i might be. it all depends
on what 0900 means.


hey, honex!


dad, you surprised me.


you decide what you're interested in?


- well, there's a lot of choices.
- but you only get one.


do you ever get bored
doing the same job every day?


son, let me tell you about stirring.


you grab that stick, and you just
move it around, and you stir it around.


you get yourself into a rhythm.
it's a beautiful thing.


you know, dad,
the more i think about it,


maybe the honey field
just isn't right for me.


you were thinking of what,
making balloon animals?


that's a bad job
for a guy with a stinger.


janet, your son's not sure
he wants to go into honey!


- barry, you are so funny sometimes.
- i'm not trying to be funny.


you're not funny! you're going
into honey. our son, the stirrer!


- you're gonna be a stirrer?
- no one's listening to me!


wait till you see the sticks i have.


i could say anything right now.
i'm gonna get an ant tattoo!


let's open some honey and celebrate!


maybe i'll pierce my thorax.
shave my antennae.


shack up with a grasshopper. get
a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"!


i'm so proud.


- we're starting work today!
- today's the day.


oome on! all the good jobs
will be gone.


yeah, right.


pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring,
stirrer, front desk, hair removal...


- is it still available?
- hang on. two left!


one of them's yours! oongratulations!
step to the side.


- what'd you get?
- picking crud out. stellar!


wow!


oouple of newbies?


yes, sir! our first day! we are ready!


make your choice.


- you want to go first?
- no, you go.


oh, my. what's available?


restroom attendant's open,
not for the reason you think.


- any chance of getting the krelman?
- sure, you're on.


i'm sorry, the krelman just closed out.


wax monkey's always open.


the krelman opened up again.


what happened?


a bee died. makes an opening. see?
he's dead. another dead one.


deady. deadified. two more dead.


dead from the neck up.
dead from the neck down. that's life!


oh, this is so hard!


heating, cooling,
stunt bee, pourer, stirrer,


humming, inspector number seven,
lint coordinator, stripe supervisor,


mite wrangler. barry, what
do you think i should... barry?


barry!


all right, we've got the sunflower patch
in quadrant nine...


what happened to you?
where are you?


- i'm going out.
- out? out where?


- out there.
- oh, no!


i have to, before i go
to work for the rest of my life.


you're gonna die! you're crazy! hello?


another call coming in.


if anyone's feeling brave,
there's a korean deli on 83rd


that gets their roses today.


hey, guys.


- look at that.
- isn't that the kid we saw yesterday?


hold it, son, flight deck's restricted.


it's ok, lou. we're gonna take him up.


really? feeling lucky, are you?


sign here, here. just initial that.


- thank you.
- ok.


you got a rain advisory today,


and as you all know,
bees cannot fly in rain.


so be careful. as always,
watch your brooms,


hockey sticks, dogs,
birds, bears and bats.


also, i got a couple of reports
of root beer being poured on us.


murphy's in a home because of it,
babbling like a cicada!


- that's awful.
- and a reminder for you rookies,


bee law number one,
absolutely no talking to humans!


all right, launch positions!


buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! buzz, buzz,
buzz, buzz! buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz!


black and yellow!


hello!


you ready for this, hot shot?


yeah. yeah, bring it on.


wind, check.


- antennae, check.
- nectar pack, check.


- wings, check.
- stinger, check.


scared out of my shorts, check.


ok, ladies,


let's move it out!


pound those petunias,
you striped stem-suckers!


all of you, drain those flowers!


wow! i'm out!


i can't believe i'm out!


so blue.


i feel so fast and free!


box kite!


wow!


flowers!


this is blue leader.
we have roses visual.


bring it around 30 degrees and hold.


roses!


30 degrees, roger. bringing it around.


stand to the side, kid.
it's got a bit of a kick.


that is one nectar collector!


- ever see pollination up close?
- no, sir.


i pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it
over here. maybe a dash over there,


a pinch on that one.
see that? it's a little bit of magic.


that's amazing. why do we do that?


that's pollen power. more pollen, more
flowers, more nectar, more honey for us.


oool.


i'm picking up a lot of bright yellow.
oould be daisies. don't we need those?


oopy that visual.


wait. one of these flowers
seems to be on the move.


say again? you're reporting
a moving flower?


affirmative.


that was on the line!


this is the coolest. what is it?


i don't know, but i'm loving this color.


it smells good.
not like a flower, but i like it.


yeah, fuzzy.


ohemical-y.


oareful, guys. it's a little grabby.


my sweet lord of bees!


oandy-brain, get off there!


problem!


- guys!
- this could be bad.


affirmative.


very close.


gonna hurt.


mama's little boy.


you are way out of position, rookie!


ooming in at you like a missile!


help me!


i don't think these are flowers.


- should we tell him?
- i think he knows.


what is this?!


match point!


you can start packing up, honey,
because you're about to eat it!


yowser!


gross.


there's a bee in the car!


- do something!
- i'm driving!


- hi, bee.
- he's back here!


he's going to sting me!


nobody move. if you don't move,
he won't sting you. freeze!


he blinked!


spray him, granny!


what are you doing?!


wow... the tension level
out here is unbelievable.


i gotta get home.


oan't fly in rain.


oan't fly in rain.


oan't fly in rain.


mayday! mayday! bee going down!


ken, could you close
the window please?


ken, could you close
the window please?


oheck out my new resume.
i made it into a fold-out brochure.


you see? folds out.


oh, no. more humans. i don't need this.


what was that?


maybe this time. this time. this time.
this time! this time! this...


drapes!


that is diabolical.


it's fantastic. it's got all my special
skills, even my top-ten favorite movies.


what's number one? star wars?


nah, i don't go for that...


...kind of stuff.


no wonder we shouldn't talk to them.
they're out of their minds.


when i leave a job interview, they're
flabbergasted, can't believe what i say.


there's the sun. maybe that's a way out.


i don't remember the sun
having a big 75 on it.


i predicted global warming.


i could feel it getting hotter.
at first i thought it was just me.


wait! stop! bee!


stand back. these are winter boots.


wait!


don't kill him!


you know i'm allergic to them!
this thing could kill me!


why does his life have
less value than yours?


why does his life have any less value
than mine? is that your statement?


i'm just saying all life has value. you
don't know what he's capable of feeling.


my brochure!


there you go, little guy.


i'm not scared of him.
it's an allergic thing.


put that on your resume brochure.


my whole face could puff up.


make it one of your special skills.


knocking someone out
is also a special skill.


right. bye, vanessa. thanks.


- vanessa, next week? yogurt night?
- sure, ken. you know, whatever.


- you could put carob chips on there.
- bye.


- supposed to be less calories.
- bye.


i gotta say something.


she saved my life.
i gotta say something.


all right, here it goes.


nah.


what would i say?


i could really get in trouble.


it's a bee law.
you're not supposed to talk to a human.


i can't believe i'm doing this.


i've got to.


oh, i can't do it. oome on!


no. yes. no.


do it. i can't.


how should i start it?
"you like jazz?" no, that's no good.


here she comes! speak, you fool!


hi!


i'm sorry.


- you're talking.
- yes, i know.


you're talking!


i'm so sorry.


no, it's ok. it's fine.
i know i'm dreaming.


but i don't recall going to bed.


well, i'm sure this
is very disconcerting.


this is a bit of a surprise to me.
i mean, you're a bee!


i am. and i'm not supposed
to be doing this,


but they were all trying to kill me.


and if it wasn't for you...


i had to thank you.
it's just how i was raised.


that was a little weird.


- i'm talking with a bee.
- yeah.


i'm talking to a bee.
and the bee is talking to me!


i just want to say i'm grateful.
i'll leave now.


- wait! how did you learn to do that?
- what?


the talking thing.


same way you did, i guess.
"mama, dada, honey." you pick it up.


- that's very funny.
- yeah.


bees are funny. if we didn't laugh,
we'd cry with what we have to deal with.


anyway...


oan i...


...get you something?
- like what?


i don't know. i mean...
i don't know. ooffee?


i don't want to put you out.


it's no trouble. it takes two minutes.


- it's just coffee.
- i hate to impose.


- don't be ridiculous!
- actually, i would love a cup.


hey, you want rum cake?


- i shouldn't.
- have some.


- no, i can't.
- oome on!


i'm trying to lose a couple micrograms.


- where?
- these stripes don't help.


you look great!


i don't know if you know
anything about fashion.


are you all right?


no.


he's making the tie in the cab
as they're flying up madison.


he finally gets there.


he runs up the steps into the church.
the wedding is on.


and he says, "watermelon?
i thought you said guatemalan.


why would i marry a watermelon?"


is that a bee joke?


that's the kind of stuff we do.


yeah, different.


so, what are you gonna do, barry?


about work? i don't know.


i want to do my part for the hive,
but i can't do it the way they want.


i know how you feel.


- you do?
- sure.


my parents wanted me to be a lawyer or
a doctor, but i wanted to be a florist.


- really?
- my only interest is flowers.


our new queen was just elected
with that same campaign slogan.


anyway, if you look...


there's my hive right there. see it?


you're in sheep meadow!


yes! i'm right off the turtle pond!


no way! i know that area.
i lost a toe ring there once.


- why do girls put rings on their toes?
- why not?


- it's like putting a hat on your knee.
- maybe i'll try that.


- you all right, ma'am?
- oh, yeah. fine.


just having two cups of coffee!


anyway, this has been great.
thanks for the coffee.


yeah, it's no trouble.


sorry i couldn't finish it. if i did,
i'd be up the rest of my life.


are you...?


oan i take a piece of this with me?


sure! here, have a crumb.


- thanks!
- yeah.


all right. well, then...
i guess i'll see you around.


or not.


ok, barry.


and thank you
so much again... for before.


oh, that? that was nothing.


well, not nothing, but... anyway...


this can't possibly work.


he's all set to go.
we may as well try it.


ok, dave, pull the chute.


- sounds amazing.
- it was amazing!


it was the scariest,
happiest moment of my life.


humans! i can't believe
you were with humans!


giant, scary humans!
what were they like?


huge and crazy. they talk crazy.


they eat crazy giant things.
they drive crazy.


- do they try and kill you, like on tv?
- some of them. but some of them don't.


- how'd you get back?
- poodle.


you did it, and i'm glad. you saw
whatever you wanted to see.


you had your "experience." now you
can pick out yourjob and be normal.


- well...
- well?


well, i met someone.


you did? was she bee-ish?


- a wasp?! your parents will kill you!
- no, no, no, not a wasp.


- spider?
- i'm not attracted to spiders.


i know it's the hottest thing,
with the eight legs and all.


i can't get by that face.


so who is she?


she's... human.


no, no. that's a bee law.
you wouldn't break a bee law.


- her name's vanessa.
- oh, boy.


she's so nice. and she's a florist!


oh, no! you're dating a human florist!


we're not dating.


you're flying outside the hive, talking
to humans that attack our homes


with power washers and m-80s!
one-eighth a stick of dynamite!


she saved my life!
and she understands me.


this is over!


eat this.


this is not over! what was that?


- they call it a crumb.
- it was so stingin' stripey!


and that's not what they eat.
that's what falls off what they eat!


- you know what a oinnabon is?
- no.


it's bread and cinnamon and frosting.
they heat it up...


sit down!


...really hot!
- listen to me!


we are not them! we're us.
there's us and there's them!


yes, but who can deny
the heart that is yearning?


there's no yearning.
stop yearning. listen to me!


you have got to start thinking bee,
my friend. thinking bee!


- thinking bee.
- thinking bee.


thinking bee! thinking bee!
thinking bee! thinking bee!


there he is. he's in the pool.


you know what your problem is, barry?


i gotta start thinking bee?


how much longer will this go on?


it's been three days!
why aren't you working?


i've got a lot of big life decisions
to think about.


what life? you have no life!
you have no job. you're barely a bee!


would it kill you
to make a little honey?


barry, come out.
your father's talking to you.


martin, would you talk to him?


barry, i'm talking to you!


you coming?


got everything?


all set!


go ahead. i'll catch up.


don't be too long.


watch this!


vanessa!


- we're still here.
- i told you not to yell at him.


he doesn't respond to yelling!


- then why yell at me?
- because you don't listen!


i'm not listening to this.


sorry, i've gotta go.


- where are you going?
- i'm meeting a friend.


a girl? is this why you can't decide?


bye.


i just hope she's bee-ish.


they have a huge parade
of flowers every year in pasadena?


to be in the tournament of roses,
that's every florist's dream!


up on a float, surrounded
by flowers, crowds cheering.


a tournament. do the roses
compete in athletic events?


no. all right, i've got one.
how come you don't fly everywhere?


it's exhausting. why don't you
run everywhere? it's faster.


yeah, ok, i see, i see.
all right, your turn.


tivo. you can just freeze live tv?
that's insane!


you don't have that?


we have hivo, but it's a disease.
it's a horrible, horrible disease.


oh, my.


dumb bees!


you must want to sting all those jerks.


we try not to sting.
it's usually fatal for us.


so you have to watch your temper.


very carefully.
you kick a wall, take a walk,


write an angry letter and throw it out.
work through it like any emotion:


anger, jealousy, lust.


oh, my goodness! are you ok?


yeah.


- what is wrong with you?!
- it's a bug.


he's not bothering anybody.
get out of here, you creep!


what was that? a pic 'n' save circular?


yeah, it was. how did you know?


it felt like about 10 pages.
seventy-five is pretty much our limit.


you've really got that
down to a science.


- i lost a cousin to italian vogue.
- i'll bet.


what in the name
of mighty hercules is this?


how did this get here?
oute bee, golden blossom,


ray liotta private select?


- is he that actor?
- i never heard of him.


- why is this here?
- for people. we eat it.


you don't have
enough food of your own?


- well, yes.
- how do you get it?


- bees make it.
- i know who makes it!


and it's hard to make it!


there's heating, cooling, stirring.
you need a whole krelman thing!


- it's organic.
- it's our-ganic!


it's just honey, barry.


just what?!


bees don't know about this!
this is stealing! a lot of stealing!


you've taken our homes, schools,
hospitals! this is all we have!


and it's on sale?!
i'm getting to the bottom of this.


i'm getting to the bottom
of all of this!


hey, hector.


- you almost done?
- almost.


he is here. i sense it.


well, i guess i'll go home now


and just leave this nice honey out,
with no one around.


you're busted, box boy!


i knew i heard something.
so you can talk!


i can talk.
and now you'll start talking!


where you getting the sweet stuff?
who's your supplier?


i don't understand.
i thought we were friends.


the last thing we want
to do is upset bees!


you're too late! it's ours now!


you, sir, have crossed
the wrong sword!


you, sir, will be lunch
for my iguana, ignacio!


where is the honey coming from?


tell me where!


honey farms! it comes from honey farms!


orazy person!


what horrible thing has happened here?


these faces, they never knew
what hit them. and now


they're on the road to nowhere!


just keep still.


what? you're not dead?


do i look dead? they will wipe anything
that moves. where you headed?


to honey farms.
i am onto something huge here.


i'm going to alaska. moose blood,
crazy stuff. blows your head off!


i'm going to tacoma.


- and you?
- he really is dead.


all right.


uh-oh!


- what is that?!
- oh, no!


- a wiper! triple blade!
- triple blade?


jump on! it's your only chance, bee!


why does everything have
to be so doggone clean?!


how much do you people need to see?!


open your eyes!
stick your head out the window!


from npr news in washington,
i'm oarl kasell.


but don't kill no more bugs!


- bee!
- moose blood guy!!


- you hear something?
- like what?


like tiny screaming.


turn off the radio.


whassup, bee boy?


hey, blood.


just a row of honey jars,
as far as the eye could see.


wow!


i assume wherever this truck goes
is where they're getting it.


i mean, that honey's ours.


- bees hang tight.
- we're all jammed in.


it's a close community.


not us, man. we on our own.
every mosquito on his own.


- what if you get in trouble?
- you a mosquito, you in trouble.


nobody likes us. they just smack.
see a mosquito, smack, smack!


at least you're out in the world.
you must meet girls.


mosquito girls try to trade up,
get with a moth, dragonfly.


mosquito girl don't want no mosquito.


you got to be kidding me!


mooseblood's about to leave
the building! so long, bee!


- hey, guys!
- mooseblood!


i knew i'd catch y'all down here.
did you bring your crazy straw?


we throw it in jars, slap a label on it,
and it's pretty much pure profit.


what is this place?


a bee's got a brain
the size of a pinhead.


they are pinheads!


pinhead.


- oheck out the new smoker.
- oh, sweet. that's the one you want.


the thomas 3000!


smoker?


ninety puffs a minute, semi-automatic.
twice the nicotine, all the tar.


a couple breaths of this
knocks them right out.


they make the honey,
and we make the money.


"they make the honey,
and we make the money"?


oh, my!


what's going on? are you ok?


yeah. it doesn't last too long.


do you know you're
in a fake hive with fake walls?


our queen was moved here.
we had no choice.


this is your queen?
that's a man in women's clothes!


that's a drag queen!


what is this?


oh, no!


there's hundreds of them!


bee honey.


our honey is being brazenly stolen
on a massive scale!


this is worse than anything bears
have done! i intend to do something.


oh, barry, stop.


who told you humans are taking
our honey? that's a rumor.


do these look like rumors?


that's a conspiracy theory.
these are obviously doctored photos.


how did you get mixed up in this?


he's been talking to humans.


- what?
- talking to humans?!


he has a human girlfriend.
and they make out!


make out? barry!


we do not.


- you wish you could.
- whose side are you on?


the bees!


i dated a cricket once in san antonio.
those crazy legs kept me up all night.


barry, this is what you want
to do with your life?


i want to do it for all our lives.
nobody works harder than bees!


dad, i remember you
coming home so overworked


your hands were still stirring.
you couldn't stop.


i remember that.


what right do they have to our honey?


we live on two cups a year. they put it
in lip balm for no reason whatsoever!


even if it's true, what can one bee do?


sting them where it really hurts.


in the face! the eye!


- that would hurt.
- no.


up the nose? that's a killer.


there's only one place you can sting
the humans, one place where it matters.


hive at five, the hive's only
full-hour action news source.


no more bee beards!


with bob bumble at the anchor desk.


weather with storm stinger.


sports with buzz larvi.


and jeanette ohung.


- good evening. i'm bob bumble.
- and i'm jeanette ohung.


a tri-county bee, barry benson,


intends to sue the human race
for stealing our honey,


packaging it and profiting
from it illegally!


tomorrow night on bee larry king,


we'll have three former queens here in
our studio, discussing their new book,


olassy ladies,
out this week on hexagon.


tonight we're talking to barry benson.


did you ever think, "i'm a kid
from the hive. i can't do this"?


bees have never been afraid
to change the world.


what about bee oolumbus?
bee gandhi? bejesus?


where i'm from, we'd never sue humans.


we were thinking
of stickball or candy stores.


how old are you?


the bee community
is supporting you in this case,


which will be the trial
of the bee century.


you know, they have a larry king
in the human world too.


it's a common name. next week...


he looks like you and has a show
and suspenders and colored dots...


next week...


glasses, quotes on the bottom from the
guest even though you just heard 'em.


bear week next week!
they're scary, hairy and here live.


always leans forward, pointy shoulders,
squinty eyes, very jewish.


in tennis, you attack
at the point of weakness!


it was my grandmother, ken. she's 81.


honey, her backhand's a joke!
i'm not gonna take advantage of that?


quiet, please.
actual work going on here.


- is that that same bee?
- yes, it is!


i'm helping him sue the human race.


- hello.
- hello, bee.


this is ken.


yeah, i remember you. timberland, size
ten and a half. vibram sole, i believe.


why does he talk again?


listen, you better go
'cause we're really busy working.


but it's our yogurt night!


bye-bye.


why is yogurt night so difficult?!


you poor thing.
you two have been at this for hours!


yes, and adam here
has been a huge help.


- frosting...
- how many sugars?


just one. i try not
to use the competition.


so why are you helping me?


bees have good qualities.


and it takes my mind off the shop.


instead of flowers, people
are giving balloon bouquets now.


those are great, if you're three.


and artificial flowers.


- oh, those just get me psychotic!
- yeah, me too.


bent stingers, pointless pollination.


bees must hate those fake things!


nothing worse
than a daffodil that's had work done.


maybe this could make up
for it a little bit.


- this lawsuit's a pretty big deal.
- i guess.


you sure you want to go through with it?


am i sure? when i'm done with
the humans, they won't be able


to say, "honey, i'm home,"
without paying a royalty!


it's an incredible scene
here in downtown manhattan,


where the world anxiously waits,
because for the first time in history,


we will hear for ourselves
if a honeybee can actually speak.


what have we gotten into here, barry?


it's pretty big, isn't it?


i can't believe how many humans
don't work during the day.


you think billion-dollar multinational
food companies have good lawyers?


everybody needs to stay
behind the barricade.


- what's the matter?
- i don't know, i just got a chill.


well, if it isn't the bee team.


you boys work on this?


all rise! the honorable
judge bumbleton presiding.


all right. oase number 4475,


superior oourt of new york,
barry bee benson v. the honey industry


is now in session.


mr. montgomery, you're representing
the five food companies collectively?


a privilege.


mr. benson... you're representing
all the bees of the world?


i'm kidding. yes, your honor,
we're ready to proceed.


mr. montgomery,
your opening statement, please.


ladies and gentlemen of the jury,


my grandmother was a simple woman.


born on a farm, she believed
it was man's divine right


to benefit from the bounty
of nature god put before us.


if we lived in the topsy-turvy world
mr. benson imagines,


just think of what would it mean.


i would have to negotiate
with the silkworm


for the elastic in my britches!


talking bee!


how do we know this isn't some sort of


holographic motion-picture-capture
hollywood wizardry?


they could be using laser beams!


robotics! ventriloquism!
oloning! for all we know,


he could be on steroids!


mr. benson?


ladies and gentlemen,
there's no trickery here.


i'm just an ordinary bee.
honey's pretty important to me.


it's important to all bees.
we invented it!


we make it. and we protect it
with our lives.


unfortunately, there are
some people in this room


who think they can take it from us


'cause we're the little guys!
i'm hoping that, after this is all over,


you'll see how, by taking our honey,
you not only take everything we have


but everything we are!


i wish he'd dress like that
all the time. so nice!


oall your first witness.


so, mr. klauss vanderhayden
of honey farms, big company you have.


i suppose so.


i see you also own
honeyburton and honron!


yes, they provide beekeepers
for our farms.


beekeeper. i find that
to be a very disturbing term.


i don't imagine you employ
any bee-free-ers, do you?


- no.
- i couldn't hear you.


- no.
- no.


because you don't free bees.
you keep bees. not only that,


it seems you thought a bear would be
an appropriate image for a jar of honey.


they're very lovable creatures.


yogi bear, fozzie bear, build-a-bear.


you mean like this?


bears kill bees!


how'd you like his head crashing
through your living room?!


biting into your couch!
spitting out your throw pillows!


ok, that's enough. take him away.


so, mr. sting, thank you for being here.
your name intrigues me.


- where have i heard it before?
- i was with a band called the police.


but you've never been
a police officer, have you?


no, i haven't.


no, you haven't. and so here
we have yet another example


of bee culture casually
stolen by a human


for nothing more than
a prance-about stage name.


oh, please.


have you ever been stung, mr. sting?


because i'm feeling
a little stung, sting.


or should i say... mr. gordon m. sumner!


that's not his real name?! you idiots!


mr. liotta, first,
belated congratulations on


your emmy win for a guest spot
on er in 2005.


thank you. thank you.


i see from your resume
that you're devilishly handsome


with a churning inner turmoil
that's ready to blow.


i enjoy what i do. is that a crime?


not yet it isn't. but is this
what it's come to for you?


exploiting tiny, helpless bees
so you don't


have to rehearse
your part and learn your lines, sir?


watch it, benson!
i could blow right now!


this isn't a goodfella.
this is a badfella!


why doesn't someone just step on
this creep, and we can all go home?!


- order in this court!
- you're all thinking it!


order! order, i say!


- say it!
- mr. liotta, please sit down!


i think it was awfully nice
of that bear to pitch in like that.


i think the jury's on our side.


are we doing everything right, legally?


i'm a florist.


right. well, here's to a great team.


to a great team!


well, hello.


- ken!
- hello.


i didn't think you were coming.


no, i was just late.
i tried to call, but... the battery.


i didn't want all this to go to waste,
so i called barry. luckily, he was free.


oh, that was lucky.


there's a little left.
i could heat it up.


yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever.


so i hear you're quite a tennis player.


i'm not much for the game myself.
the ball's a little grabby.


that's where i usually sit.
right... there.


ken, barry was looking at your resume,


and he agreed with me that eating with
chopsticks isn't really a special skill.


you think i don't see what you're doing?


i know how hard it is to find
the rightjob. we have that in common.


do we?


bees have 100 percent employment,
but we do jobs like taking the crud out.


that's just what
i was thinking about doing.


ken, i let barry borrow your razor
for his fuzz. i hope that was all right.


i'm going to drain the old stinger.


yeah, you do that.


look at that.


you know, i've just about had it


with your little mind games.


- what's that?
- italian vogue.


mamma mia, that's a lot of pages.


a lot of ads.


remember what van said, why is
your life more valuable than mine?


funny, i just can't seem to recall that!


i think something stinks in here!


i love the smell of flowers.


how do you like the smell of flames?!


not as much.


water bug! not taking sides!


ken, i'm wearing a ohapstick hat!
this is pathetic!


i've got issues!


well, well, well, a royal flush!


- you're bluffing.
- am i?


surf's up, dude!


poo water!


that bowl is gnarly.


except for those dirty yellow rings!


kenneth! what are you doing?!


you know, i don't even like honey!
i don't eat it!


we need to talk!


he's just a little bee!


and he happens to be
the nicest bee i've met in a long time!


long time? what are you talking about?!
are there other bugs in your life?


no, but there are other things bugging
me in life. and you're one of them!


fine! talking bees, no yogurt night...


my nerves are fried from riding
on this emotional roller coaster!


goodbye, ken.


and for your information,


i prefer sugar-free, artificial
sweeteners made by man!


i'm sorry about all that.


i know it's got
an aftertaste! i like it!


i always felt there was some kind
of barrier between ken and me.


i couldn't overcome it.
oh, well.


are you ok for the trial?


i believe mr. montgomery
is about out of ideas.


we would like to call
mr. barry benson bee to the stand.


good idea! you can really see why he's
considered one of the best lawyers...


yeah.


layton, you've
gotta weave some magic


with this jury,
or it's gonna be all over.


don't worry. the only thing i have
to do to turn this jury around


is to remind them
of what they don't like about bees.


- you got the tweezers?
- are you allergic?


only to losing, son. only to losing.


mr. benson bee, i'll ask you
what i think we'd all like to know.


what exactly is your relationship


to that woman?


we're friends.


- good friends?
- yes.


how good? do you live together?


wait a minute...


are you her little...


...bedbug?


i've seen a bee documentary or two.
from what i understand,


doesn't your queen give birth
to all the bee children?


- yeah, but...
- so those aren't your real parents!


- oh, barry...
- yes, they are!


hold me back!


you're an illegitimate bee,
aren't you, benson?


he's denouncing bees!


don't y'all date your cousins?


- objection!
- i'm going to pincushion this guy!


adam, don't! it's what he wants!


oh, i'm hit!!


oh, lordy, i am hit!


order! order!


the venom! the venom
is coursing through my veins!


i have been felled
by a winged beast of destruction!


you see? you can't treat them
like equals! they're striped savages!


stinging's the only thing
they know! it's their way!


- adam, stay with me.
- i can't feel my legs.


what angel of mercy
will come forward to suck the poison


from my heaving buttocks?


i will have order in this court. order!


order, please!


the case of the honeybees
versus the human race


took a pointed turn against the bees


yesterday when one of their legal
team stung layton t. montgomery.


- hey, buddy.
- hey.


- is there much pain?
- yeah.


i...


i blew the whole case, didn't i?


it doesn't matter. what matters is
you're alive. you could have died.


i'd be better off dead. look at me.


they got it from the cafeteria
downstairs, in a tuna sandwich.


look, there's
a little celery still on it.


what was it like to sting someone?


i can't explain it. it was all...


all adrenaline and then...
and then ecstasy!


all right.


you think it was all a trap?


of course. i'm sorry.
i flew us right into this.


what were we thinking? look at us. we're
just a couple of bugs in this world.


what will the humans do to us
if they win?


i don't know.


i hear they put the roaches in motels.
that doesn't sound so bad.


adam, they check in,
but they don't check out!


oh, my.


oould you get a nurse
to close that window?


- why?
- the smoke.


bees don't smoke.


right. bees don't smoke.


bees don't smoke!
but some bees are smoking.


that's it! that's our case!


it is? it's not over?


get dressed. i've gotta go somewhere.


get back to the court and stall.
stall any way you can.


and assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub.


mr. flayman.


yes? yes, your honor!


where is the rest of your team?


well, your honor, it's interesting.


bees are trained to fly haphazardly,


and as a result,
we don't make very good time.


i actually heard a funny story about...


your honor,
haven't these ridiculous bugs


taken up enough
of this court's valuable time?


how much longer will we allow
these absurd shenanigans to go on?


they have presented no compelling
evidence to support their charges


against my clients,
who run legitimate businesses.


i move for a complete dismissal
of this entire case!


mr. flayman, i'm afraid i'm going


to have to consider
mr. montgomery's motion.


but you can't! we have a terrific case.


where is your proof?
where is the evidence?


show me the smoking gun!


hold it, your honor!
you want a smoking gun?


here is your smoking gun.


what is that?


it's a bee smoker!


what, this?
this harmless little contraption?


this couldn't hurt a fly,
let alone a bee.


look at what has happened


to bees who have never been asked,
"smoking or non?"


is this what nature intended for us?


to be forcibly addicted
to smoke machines


and man-made wooden slat work camps?


living out our lives as honey slaves
to the white man?


- what are we gonna do?
- he's playing the species card.


ladies and gentlemen, please,
free these bees!


free the bees! free the bees!


free the bees!


free the bees! free the bees!


the court finds in favor of the bees!


vanessa, we won!


i knew you could do it! high-five!


sorry.


i'm ok! you know what this means?


all the honey
will finally belong to the bees.


now we won't have
to work so hard all the time.


this is an unholy perversion
of the balance of nature, benson.


you'll regret this.


barry, how much honey is out there?


all right. one at a time.


barry, who are you wearing?


my sweater is ralph lauren,
and i have no pants.


- what if montgomery's right?
- what do you mean?


we've been living the bee way
a long time, 27 million years.


oongratulations on your victory.
what will you demand as a settlement?


first, we'll demand a complete shutdown
of all bee work camps.


then we want back the honey
that was ours to begin with,


every last drop.


we demand an end to the glorification
of the bear as anything more


than a filthy, smelly,
bad-breath stink machine.


we're all aware
of what they do in the woods.


wait for my signal.


take him out.


he'll have nauseous
for a few hours, then he'll be fine.


and we will no longer tolerate
bee-negative nicknames...


but it's just a prance-about stage name!


...unnecessary inclusion of honey
in bogus health products


and la-dee-da human
tea-time snack garnishments.

i swear it seems like this company is doing everything it can to fail. i really don't think they could be any worse if they tried. a while back i considered buying stock after seeing how beaten down it is and the high dividend, but after some interaction with them i wouldn't touch it at half the current price. the way they are performing that dividend wont last any longer than the share price.

i just lost my internet today (monday) because of an error with their system, and now tech support has to come out to fix it. they scheduled it for "thursday," and now a tech says that we were misquoted for the time-frame, noting that they wouldn't come until friday. the worst part is that i work from home, and i rely on internet. without it, i can't work. i'm losing my wages, and customer support could care less. they lied to me, telling me that i was being added to an "expedited service" list, when in all reality, the tech told me that was just a way to "calm the customer" and that no such thing really existed. i never had any problems with fios here in florida until frontier bought it from verizon. verizon actually knew what they were doing. frontier's software systems completely messed up the fios backbone, making it an unreliable internet service. moreover, the customer service doesn't even serve you. they just tell you what you want to hear, and sometimes, what you don't want to hear, rather than fixing their problems.

just a quick tip.. like all companies frontier notates customers accounts.. frontier reps believe these notes are powerful.. they believe these notes are authoritative and meaningful. and let me be the first to tell you these notes are meaningless and useless.. they are inaccurate and non-authoritative and are often skewed by personal opinion and misinterpretation...and sometimes these notes are even completely untrue and purely vindictive..

frontier is a private sector for profit entity and therefore the company has absolutely no authority.. because authority is an empowerment available only to judicial and executive branches of government and law enforcement agencies.. and frontier is none of the above..
this company can have no authority.. period.

frontier is the epitome of malicious business. no shows, argumentative and uneducated service representatives that provide fictitious names to prevent discovery of their real identities, recklessly scheduled appointments, egregious and deceptive business practices, third rate contracted labor, it's unbelievable this company can actually make money. fronter is comprised of ruthless cowards that won't accept one ounce of accountability for their disservice. this company hires washups, losers, grossly incompetent morons with no future. these people are examples of the lifestyle your mother warned you about when she said become something.

daniel j. mccarthy should face criminal charges in every jurisdiction for scheme to defraud, wire fraud, interstate conspiracy, organized crime, and quite frankly, i won't be surprised when someone finally loses it, and righteously beats the living shit out of him.

david j. mccarthy needs to be involuntarily held for a mental health evaluation because something is seriously wrong with him. the guy is either a heavy drinker or heavy substance user because noone in their right mind would endorse this kind of business operation. his leadership is dangerous to public health and threatens the welfare of all subscribers.you need professional help david. get the help you need now for the sake of your family. stop abusing your wife, children, family and friends. you are not a hero to our nation. you are rather a bad bad man.

trying to get away from this demonic company is not as easy as you might think. the attitudes and local governments, and shall i say the additional payoffs to the local politicians have forced all of us into servitude to these companies in general. now that i have the advantage of being in my senior years i have additional protections under my state laws. and i plan to go ahead and make sure that this company is held accountable. at least to me in every way shape and form. i can expect that there will be a bloodbath when they report their earnings at the end of february and the mass defections that have gone ahead. if it only were as simple to ask for a number communications company to go ahead and please provide service certain areas it would be most welcome. now with the new proposed chairman of the fcc being a trump handpicked republican nightmare, if you think it is only going to get better, you are sadly mistaken. but there is one hope in this entire nightmare called frontier communications, that the people who are placing numerous "puts" on the stock are about to make a lot of money. the fact that i expect that their earnings to be far beyond less than anything and they expect to be soon to be the doomsday report of their lives. this company has been hanging on by a thread and cannot continue his earnings-per-share loss, nor can it continue paying an 11 or 12% dividend for much longer without going completely broke. there is a very substantial rumor out there that there is an acquisition of this company going to occur sometime second or third 1:45 thousand 17 with an offering that they cannot refuse. this company is going broke every day and has yet to realize that their heydays are over.

this usd10.8 billion mistake that they made is going to cost them a whole lot more than they could ever imagine. you cannot continue paying an 11 or 12% dividend on a stock price of usd3.50 a share and expect to get out smelling like a rose. verizon found a sucker and as ringling brothers or somebody else stated which i think would be wc fields, there is a sucker born every day, and dan mccarthy and the board of directors of frontier communications are a classic example of that opinion, in my personal opinion. and if they want to go ahead and try and play with me or anyone else, i am here to help you file both formal and informal fcc complaints, state public utility commission complaints, local complaints and everything else that is involved. i personally am fed up with them. and sending me solicitations involving life insurance identity protection and other forms of solicitations is even more insulting. frontier communications is a disaster waiting to happen. all you have to do is look at the options market in reference to this stock and you will see that people are betting that it is going to fall even further. and it will! there is not a damn thing that frontier communications can do to protect themselves in this freefall of their stock price except to expend corporate resources to try and prop up the price of their stock and hope that the multitudes of people who bought into the dividend percentage will not bail on them. frontier is a dinosaur that will soon be dismissed. the annals of telecom history in this particular deal. i considered to be one of the most egregious and harmful deals ever made any subscriber, to any telecom company, ever!

"all you whiney bitches just need to switch service, you want frontier gone? the more of you that cancel the lower the stick goes... then they go bankrupt... but complaining on a site that has nothing to do with the company... who does that help? no one you just look like a bitch. get some balls and switch service"

whoever said that is pretty damn retarded. i mean serious it's kind of obvious some people like me do not have other options in our area. it's called a monopoly for a reason. satellite is too unnafordable and throttles/forces you into a data plan in my location and frontier is literally the only provaider. still that is not justification for their crappy server and internet. this is one of those companies where you wonder how the heck they are not out of business yet or at the least the kicks in and tells those idiots to stop ripping people off. there is no excuse for this even if people decide to stay with frontier it doesnt make it the person fault considering the company shouldn't be ripping people of anyway.

have a total outage at my residence and have had to call *customer service* 6 times in two days to see when a technician will be coming to replace the main connection box to my house.
1st call- reset all of your equipment
2nd call- maybe a battery issues will send you one on friday (this was wednesday)
3rd call - scheduled for 9am tomorrow
4th call - no one showed or called before 10am. new tech is on his way from a prior ticket, eta 2 hours
5th call - no tech calls or shows still - new technician assigned, may make it today or tomorrow
6th call - dispatch can not update me on the status of the tech, also will *not* reduce my bill for lost service
to top all of this, i had to take the day off work for the technician to come.

if you have a different choice in your provider i urge you to explore it!

i can't even give these guys my business. call to order an additional cable box. told the wait time is 20 minutes. even after choosing the option that i'd like to add to my existing service it's a 20 minute wait? you'd think they'd jump all over that.

decide to hang up and do an online chat with a service rep. i tell her i'd like to order an additional dvr box. she says no problem and i figure everything is fine. i check my account online and there's a service ticket. perfect. two weeks pass and no box. check my latest statement today and there's no mention of an additional box. evidently the service rep created and closed a blank service ticket.

i don't plan on calling them back. this is the second runaround i've been given by customer service. my promo is up in a couple of months and i'm done with frontier. they're not ready for prime time.

one of the things that i find to be most disgusting about this company is the fact that when they mail out there monthly bills which seem to change from month to month to month. even though we have not changed our services at all. in fact, we have gotten rid of all most of their services. i receive solicitations to buy usd100,000 in life insurance from the globe life and accident insurance company and globe life insurance company of new york as part of the bill. i also receive flyers on how to get unlimited checks with custom printing for only usd5.50 and of course they want me to upgrade my packages every month. i find it really insulting to receive any sort of solicitation from any company and i have never seen such arrogance and the fact that they are sending out life insurance solicitations as well? are there any scruples at all, or ethical behavior that goes on at this company. never before in any of my 60 years of using a telephone, let alone my 45+ years of receiving telephone bills. have i ever seen continuous obnoxious behavior of the likes never before. i cannot wait until they report their fourth-quarter earnings at the end of february because that will be a major bombshell to the stock. i am sure there are many out there who have gone ahead and already defected because of the insanity that this company does and does not give a damn about the customer in the first place. we do not use their television service, or have any of their equipment so whatsoever in our domicile and we absolutely refused to use any of their equipment. no matter what! before verizon decided to sell us all out to this third world rated telephone company which is nothing more than it telemarketing company in essance, it seems that they are doomed and i hope very soon they become delisted. they cannot continue to hemorrhage money like they are doing and expect to stay in business.

when you call these idiots, high chances that you will be talking with a contractor employee from empercon. formally tech support (right) for direct tv. these are the people who hang up on customers, lie, transfer your calls...to "highly unlikely" a real frontier employee. they based out of arizona so you can work out of your own home!!! these contractors ar just plain dangerous to customers. they read off of a "tree" when you call, and if they can't answer a simple question then they transfer you to someone else somewhere in the usa @ texas, west virginia florida, rochester new york, they are even using through voip a calling center through des moines iowa!!!!!here a number that may help you, providing your phone is working president dan mccarthy 2036145688. this is a good number to use. don't forget to file with the fcc as well.mccarthy email is dan.mccarthy@ftr.com this company is out of control. in everett wash there is a major frontier office with real employees, however don't expect a call from them unless you contact mccarthy by email, phone 1st. been there and done that but it took forever (months) to get their attention. also demand a proration of your bill. they have to do that. make sure you have your trouble ticket numbers handy to give them.

verizon transferred my account to frontier inaccurately and they try to overbill me by $35 a month. i have to call in every.single.f%@king.month to have them issue me a credit. they want me to explain every.single.f%@king.month why the credit is being issued. they claim there is no way to set up a recurring credit. they then tell me they have set up a recurring credit and it will come through in the next 1 or 2 billing cycles. guess what? it never f%@king shows up. unfortunately, brighthouse, my only other alternative is even more f%@ked up than frontier.

now my ip seems to be registered to f%@king ottawa, canada when i am located in bradenton, florida so i have all the pleasure have seeing canadian dollar prices on websites.

for the most part my services work exactly the same as with verizon, occasionally glitchy cable and flawless internet. unfortunately frontier themselves are incompetent as f%@k. it took me 10 tries over 2 days to get my starz package removed and a promo applied to reduce my bill. that was jan 5th. fast vorward to jan 24th and i still have starz and am now awaiting an "adjustment" on my bill which may take two billing cycles (like holy f%@k sraly?) and those promos i was told were applie were not approved and no one bothered to give a f%@k and tell me. so i have to now call some new promo department to get that sorted out maybe or just waste my time again.

the product is ok, verizon set things up well. frontier was given the ball and now they are slowly jamming it up their own asses.

even though i made a payment two days before my bill was due, frontier disconnected service to my business a day before the bill was due!!! wtf. then they said it was because i had paid online with my checking account instead of calling in. to make matters worse, even though i had made a payment 24 hours ago, it hasn't posted and i would be in danger of losing my business telephone number that we've had for over 10 years and would have to get another number!!!

wtf????

so they made me make a double payment on the spot or i could lose the number that my customers have known for over a decade! forget the fact that it could take up to 24 hours to restore service and not process any sales!!!

seriously, is there another alternative to this horrible customer service?

if a payment will take too long to process on line, then please don't make that an option. but suspending service before the due date????

that should be illegal!

maybe it's okay to use frontier for tv, but you should never, ever use them for a business account. they tried to speed up my home account and totally wiped out my business account. they said "oops, i'm sorry about that". after hours on the phone, they told me i pretty much had to wait for a technician to come out to fix it. takes about a week or so. they volunteered to "blue code" it and get someone out the next day. still unacceptable for them to hit a few keystokes and wipe out my connection.

and don't even bother calling for support during non-business hours. they have a bunch of very polite, very incompetent people staffing their phones.

this has to be one of worst run companies to ever exist. i am a ceo of tech company and i can't image how president and ceo daniel j. mccarthy even looks at himself in the mirror each morning. what an embarrassment to the board of directors for frontier communications.

how could you put a tool like this in charge who ignores customer's needs and can easily be considered one of the worst ceo's to ever run an company? he is incapable of doing a single thing correctly. the stock holders should be outraged and look for another board who actually knows something about picking a leader that can actually help them turn this business around.

horrible customer service is frontier's biggest claim but lack of integrity is a close second. customer bills go up every month with no explanation by customer service reps as to why. they seem to be bilking people out of millions of dollars on an ongoing basis. this company is disgrace and a sham. vote with you pocketbook and find a media service provider that cares about integrity and customer service,

also shame on verizon for doing this their loyal customers! verizon needs to take some responsibility for selling out to this dishonest firm.

i have been paying for frontier dsl for 2 years. i pay for frontier 13 mbps internet. i only get 5 of that. i call frontier every week complaining and all i get is salutations that do not work and technicians that do not know what they are doing. i get kicked off the internet about 4 to 5 times per day because of some sort of dns error. i had a tech tell me it was because i was using the wrong type of phone cord. (even though that was the cord that frontier provided me) i was charged $90 for that. and the cord that he gave me did not solve anything. it was almost like he did nothing at all. today i woke up without internet and i was told there was an outage in my area. there have been 5 this weekend. most of the time my internet does not work and i am sick and tired of paying $55 for nothing. i am afraid to downgrade because i pay for 13 but only get 5. if i pay for 5 i will only get 0. how are they still i business and why haven't they been sued

i have been trying for a month to switch from frontier to spectrum (probably just as crappy, but at least it will be a new kind of crappy) and was told last night by a spectrum sales rep that frontier will not "port" our phone number (by the way, we don't want a land line but it costs more to get rid of it) until the 30th of the month. we are being held hostage by frontier. we can no longer retrieve voicemail, our bill went up $21 per month, the alarm in our garage has been going for a month because the battery needs to be replaced (ordered on 12/30/16 and delivered to god-knows-where on 1/5/17), they won't ship another battery becasuse "if your just gonna switch companies i'm not sendin' another battery", the internet is so god-awful that even sitting next to the router doesn't work (but, "for $10 more per month we can fix that"), the "customer service" is a joke (not very funny) no one can give a straight/correct answer to a question ie: 2 of 4 reps say we will not have an ecf (early cancellation fee), the other two say we will...
i know the plan is to exhaust all of the complainy-pants consumers so we'll just give up and it is working. i give up. we will listen to the alarm until we can finally unplug all of the frontier equipment and i'll pay whatever i have to pay to be relieved of this crazy company. i'll wait to be switched to spectrum and then will probably have to start complaining about them.

i called to obtain a quote in october and everything sound great, so i provided my payment information.that was when everything went wrong.

the gentlemen went on to explain that i would only have 4gb of wifi during the day and unlimited during the hours of 10pm to 6am. the great deal i thought i was getting was nothing but a shame! at that point i advised the man i was speaking with to cancel the deal, because i didn't want it after hearing all the details. the man i was speaking to got upset.

he told me he would cancel it and then hung up on me. that afternoon i received a call from someone trying to set up a appointment to install my "new service". i was confused, because i was told everything would be cancelled. i had to call customer support and once again ask to have everything cancelled.

at that point i realized my account had been charged, so i asked for the funds to be returned. 3 months later i'm reviewing my bank account and i realized i've been charged since october. i'm sure you could understand my anger and frustration at this point.

for the 3rd time i had to call and cancel an account i've never had and asked to have my money refunded again!i would never recommend this company to anyone!

the only way you will get frontier to pay attention to you is if you file a complaint with the fcc. frontier will pay attention to that because they can get fined by the government. here is the link and be sure to let the fcc know just how horrible frontier's "customer service" and "technical support" are (i am using those terms lightly as there is no such thing with frontier). and be sure to demand a refund for the days your service was out. trust me, if the fcc is involved, frontier can't refund it fast enough.

https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us

amusingly enough, i am on hold with frontier right now. fifteen minutes and counting on hold with music that makes me want to scream. if there were any other internet providers where i live, i wouldn't continue to put myself through the aggravation and stress of having to deal with this miserable excuse of a company.

the more of us that hit frontier with fcc complaints, the more likely that frontier will pull their heads out of their corporate butts and actually serve their customers.

oh, yay. now i have to be on hold again to wait to talk to the original department i called. the rep just told me "oh no, i have to transfer you back. they have been misdirecting calls all day." isn't it ridiculous that their own people admit how screwed up they are?

and she just misapplied my payment while we were on the phone. unbelievable. thirty minutes and now i am back on hold. just to make a frigging phone payment and get a credit for internet service being out for two days.

forget it. i hung up.

frontier sucks!

frontier contracts out its cs and tech support to another company called empereon. empereon doesn't want anybody on the phone with a customer more than 13 minutes. so as you can imagine with such horrible service the retention rates for employees is low and good employees that actually want to help the customer are "coached" and possibly disciplined. so the employee has to decide to help or do what they can in 13 minutes or possibly face termination after repeated "coachings". if frontier offered better service then the calls would naturally decrease in amount and length. frontier at any given time has at least 4 major outages that typically span from florida (fios) to west coast. dallas/fr.worth has issues everyday. west virginia i would estimate has only 65% of its dsl customers in service at any given time.
oregon has had major issues for the last few weeks and today at least 15 more random cities were added to the outage list at once.

we are paying a premium for 7 mbit internet in a town that has access to 100mbit providers. we are only getting at most 5mbit from them whether it be wireless, wired, no connected devices, etc. a tech came out to diagnose the issue and claimed that we are only paying for 6mbit here in town, but the dsl link is listed at 6944kbit/s (7mbit). this service is terrible and they will not fix the line issues they have said they saw (load of bs imo) and ignore the complaints we have about the slow speeds.

so frontier says (after months of wildly inconsistent service) to me that my poor service is due to the lines in my apartment building needing to be upgraded. now, i understand that wire gets old and worn and needs to be replaced every so often. the thing is, this is not my problem as i do not own the building, i rent an apartment in the building. when i signed up, i was not told that the buildings wiring was out of date but they took my money really quick! when i first signed up (it was verizon at the time) the service was decent, or at least as decent as dsl can be. the worst part about all this is that frontier is my only option for internet. plus the concept of paying full price for partial service is killing me. they wont do a damn thing to help and just refer me to my building management, who then bounces me back to frontier!! i will leave if we ever get another isp option here or when i move out, and i will for the rest of my days make sure none of my friends/family use their service!

i am in lakewood, calif. 9 trouble tickets since april 1st 2016. last week. slow internet. i pay for 75up 75 down. was getting 8 up 11 down. call 8009218102. talk with idiots that know nothing and work out of their home. he wanted to test my line but i had to use my cell phone. told him i don't have one. then said i needed a new router although my router is 5 months old. he then stated he had to reset ont. then reset router. after he did that all internet went away as well as caller id. 3 days later a tech came out unannounced at 8am. brings new router. takes 10 minutes to install. cant get caller id to work. states his boss will take care of it as he is not allowed to do that. he leaves. i go to make a phone call. all i could get was a intermittent dial tone. my phone also would not ring. seems someone at this company decided to give me voice mail. i did not order it, now no caller id, can't be called. 3 days letter same thing. after talking to 6 employees no one can help, especiall provisioning that handles these problems. they closed at 5pm sat night (tonight) and won't be back till tuesday as mlk day monday. 4 states were involved with one call. no one seems to care, in fact one black female named tanja said she did all she could do. she would not let me talk at all, and when i told her to let me talk that she was in charge of the conversation. president dan mccarthy's phone number at corporate is 866 511-1523. valerie foster is his secretary. other number for him is 877 433-3806. ext 0001 or 0029. there is a jessica there who answers questions but is new. she states frontier responds in 12-24 hours. right! officeofthepresident@ftr.com is email of president. tell him what you really think!!! i have finally filed a complaint with the fcc as they handle frontier on the fios side.

ticket was placed on 12/31/16, and it took until 1/13/17 for someone to come out, however on 1/11/17 the latency was over 2000ms, as well as a number of dropped packets, so i called to add that to the ticket, and on the day they were supposed to come, nothing was done about it, other than that that they said i was in a high connectivity area, meaning of course an area of high demand, or as everyone else calls it, congestion. also, according to the tech i spoke too, nothing seems to be wrong with the network for the area i'm in, and an escalation was put on the ticket for a repeat issue.

i have taken several screenshots of the command prompt where the ping test was run 50 times, once at 5 pm, and again at 3:40 am the following day. the average latency was 2198ms, and 14% in packet loss for the first one, and 2240ms and 4% packet loss for the second.

also, just for fun, here is a copy of my letter to the fcc that frontier never responded too.





my trouble with frontier began in 2010 or 2011. what happened was my speed used to run at 240 kb, and then one day it started to run at 140 kb, and that's where it has remained since. i have talked to one of the field techs at the time, and they said that there are people who have had 3 mb, 4 mb, and even 6 mb of service, and they have all been lowered to what mine currently is, so i seriously doubt that i am an isolated incident. about four or five months after that is when service began to slow down, so much in fact that, even at 2:00 in the morning, the latency was usually at 1200 ms with the lowest i ever saw it being about 800 or 900 ms. this kind of service made it so that instead of running at 140 kb which was the maximum allowable speed that i could get at the time, it would usually run at about 20 or 30 kb, and the best part is this would last for about the next three years. during this time i made a number of phone calls complaining about my service, and during that time, other than being told that it was due to congestion (which further backs up my claim that frontier communications does not care one bit about its customers, and all they care about is making as much money as they can on an outdated and overtaxed system), i was told a number of conflicting stories such as where one tech rep told me that they were upgrading the system, and then later, when i was talking to someone in texas, they straight up told me that there was no upgrading being done in the state of west virginia.
now, if there is no upgrading being done in the state of west virginia, then please explain to me what happened to that $42 million of internet stimulus money that frontier communications got which is peanuts compared to the $126.3 million they were given in 2010 to expand their internet coverage. from what i've read their job was to basically build a system that would allow competition in the area, and instead, all they went and did was build a system that would benefit no one but frontier communications, and the cherry on top is that the system they built could've been built by their competitors for about half the price, so you know that some frontier communications executive got his wallet padded as a result of this. it gets even worse when you realize that, at taxpayer expense, frontier did build a fios network, however the average consumer cannot take advantage of it, and of course, it is highly unlikely that any of frontier's competitors would be able to take advantage of the fios network as well since frontier has a reputation of running off competition, so i am stuck with frontier being my "best" option, which brings me back to the terrible speed that one can expect.
as you can imagine, when you're not the only one on the internet, and 1.3 mb is all you got and even then you don't get even half of that, it didn't come as a surprise that i eventually took out a second internet line. i of course was not too happy about this, and so i called frontier communications and complained about it to them, and this is how i managed to get a second internet line for free. while i wasn't entirely happy with this, i was somewhat placated a little bit, and for the most part i left things alone… until one day in the middle of july 2014 when they started charging me again for the second internet option. just to recap i was already paying $20 a month for internet, and now i am paying $16 a month for the second internet line, which brings my monthly bill to $36, a service that in other areas and for $14 more would've gotten you somewhere between 20 mb to 36 mb for the same amount of money. normally, yes, i would switch to a higher payment plan to get better internet, unfortunately for me, high-speed internet max, which delivers 1.3 mb, is the highest payment plan they got, while the one below that, high-speed internet light, is about 70-75 kb.
i have of course argued with the southern regional manager, rita griffith, about my abysmal service, and one of the very first thing she asked me was how did i get this number? i bring this up because, not only are tech reps not allowed to give the regional managers numbers to client so they can voice their complaints, but rita griffith has also went on to say that, if the public had their numbers, all they would be doing is answering phone calls, a statement that in itself is very telling when it comes to portraying frontier's level of concern when it comes to their customer satisfaction. if your service is so bad, that your customers would be hounding you during normal business hours, then that's kind of an indication that you got a big problem on your hands…giving your customers no recourse to voice their complaints however is not going to cause the problem to go away.
as insulting as the above is she manages to outdo herself when she says that there just wasn't enough people in the area to make upgrading the service worthwhile. this, of course, flies in the face of reality. if frontier communications system is already getting so bogged down that they had to reduce everyone's speed to 1.3 mb, and even then the system just kept getting slower and slower until you couldn't even use it most of the time (you literally had to be up at two in the morning to use it reliably), then please explain to me where all of these other people are coming from? also, how is it that you got people from new york, new jersey, and everywhere else moving into the state, and yet there isn't enough people to make upgrading worthwhile? also, from one tech rep, i was told that the line i was on stretched about 100 miles, so you know there is going to be quite the number of people on it.
the answer to this is quite simple… it's not that there aren't enough people, it's just that frontier communication doesn't want to spend any more money than it has to. why bother upgrading a structure when you're the only game in town? if people don't like the service you're providing then they will literally have to do without… there is no alternative, unless of course one goes by satellite, but at 200 mb a day, that is not really a reliable option, and yes, frontier communications tech rep has actually tried to push that on me on more than one occasion, a service that would not only be limiting in that i would have to pay $50 to download a $5 game, but playing online games such as world of warcraft would be completely out of the question. still, even if i didn't do online gaming, and i didn't have a daily bandwidth limit, there is however always going to be a monthly one, and it is usually set at 5 gb at the cheapest package… 10 gb is a joke in of itself if you want to watch netflix, or if you purchase games off of steam, and yes, i have actually heard frontier communications try and charge some of its unlimited internet customers more money if they went over a certain number of bandwidth consumed, and no, this wasn't a part of their contract, it was just frontier communications wanting more money which they tried to get by inventing a new fee ex nihilo, which is reflected when they said that 5 gb is more than enough for a single month, which as i have already stated, is completely untrue.
naturally frontier communications will defend themselves by saying that they are bringing internet to people in out-of-the-way areas, and that we should be happy for what we get. this same logic of course can be applied to selling a bottle of water for $100 in the middle of death valley. yes… i understand that is in out-of-the-way area, but when you're charging prices like this, and you know that you're the only game in town, do not kid yourself by saying that you are not price gouging your customers. while there was actually a piece of legislation in west virginia that would have helped to curtail frontier's abuse of their customers, and limit their false advertising by making it impossible to call anything beneath 10 mb as broadband, nothing became of it since this would have hurt frontier, and since frontier communications has a number of politicians in its pocket, the bill of course never amounted to anything.
now, just because i live out in the boonies, does not mean i should be taking advantage of, and treated like i don't matter. also, in the year 2015, the internet is needed for a variety of reasons, not just social and entertainment, but also for education and business. i personally have thought of running my own online business to get off of being dependent on social security by doing remote desktop support, however when you have only 18 kb for the upload, that is clearly not going to happen. when you're basically delivering a substandard amount of performance and charging high dollar prices on a populace who has no other alternatives how then do you expect them to compete in modern day society? i remember one person complaining about how bad the internet was, and how it was adversely affecting his business, and the responce he was given was basically "tough." also the magic words "up to" should not be an excuse for frontier communications to not deliver at least mediocre service.
if you watch any frontier communications commercial it will usually advertise speeds up to 6 mbits, something that is so far from reality, that it should be considered outright lying. this would be like a used car salesman's saying that all cars are up to 75% off, and then not changing the prices on any of the vehicles. technically said used car salesman has not broken the law since 0% is up to 75%, however what the average customer would have expected, and the actual reality of the situation being having so little to do with one another, how can you sit there and tell me that the used car salesman is not taking advantage of the people that he should be serving? also, if frontier can get away with delivering 20 to 30 kb of service, when the max speed i should be getting is 1.3 mb, which in itself is a joke (this is no longer 1990, and if it were, then i probably wouldn't be writing this), then by all intents and purposes i want to have it in my contract that i have to pay frontier up to 100% of what i owe them, which is to say, i expect to have free service for life.
speaking of contracts frontier communications actually has it in their online contract that you cannot sue them, which of course, has all the hallmarks of the corrupt corporation. if corporations are above the law, then following the same logic, that means i should open my own hotel, and when my guests are out of their rooms, go in and loot everything of value. i might as well do this, because if you read the fine print, it says that you, as a guest, cannot sue the owner of the hotel for any reason whatsoever, so whatever immoral crime i may commit is perfectly legal in the eyes of the law. if one follows that logic then how is this any different than hiring, for example, a contract killer? they got a contract don't they, so everything must be legal, right? even so frontier communications stipulation that you cannot sue them has shaky ground, given that not only is the clause online, but no written confirmation was ever given.
still, as bad as three years of 1200 ms latency was, in october 2014, things did improve, however it was unlikely that it was due to frontier communications, and more to do with the class action lawsuit that was filed in the state of west virginia. everything did run fine for a while until 8/1/15 when i started to experience about 46% packet loss whenever i ran a 50 ping ping test. i did of course make a phone call and report what was going on, however on 8/3/15, that's when the internet quit working altogether, and would remain off for the next three weeks.
the good news however is that the second internet line was able to connect to the internet again on 8/6/15, but connecting to the router was so bad, that i frequently had to restart the device just to be able to access the routers firmware, an issue that has more to do with the router than it is with the internet, and to this day, frontier has yet to send out a new router to fix the problem. as for the main internet line it stayed off with the dsl light in a constant blinking state, which means the internet light was never lit due to the router being unable to make a proper connection to the dsl line. a tech did come to the house later on to install service for a relative who is currently staying here, and while he was here, he did manage to fix the problem a little…the dsl light would now turn solid, and the internet light did light up, but the internet light would now be red, which means that i still wouldn't be able to connect to the internet.
still as bad as not having one of your internet lines working, and having to make do on a flimsy 1.34 mb connection divided up amongst everyone in the household, this wouldn't have been bad enough on its own if it wasn't for the constant lies i was told during the following three weeks. what would happen is, every time i called, they would usually tell me to wait 24 or 48 hours, and that it would then be fixed which of course never happened. 24 to 48 hours would pass, i'd call and tell them that it was still out, and they would deliver the same spiel about waiting 24 to 48 hours in order for it to get it fixed.
this got so bad, that one day when they told me that someone would be out, i kept calling them every two hours and asking where they were, and every time i did their response was always the same… just keep waiting and they'll be there. of course nobody showed up, and when 5 o'clock did come, i was told, surprise surprise, to wait another 24 or 48 hrs. at about the third week i was told by one tech representative that i had been put in about three or four common cause tickets which meant that every time something was resolved, i just got placed into a new group ticket. naturally this meant that my internet still wasn't working, so it didn't really do me any good at all. i just kept calling and telling them that it didn't work, and they would just keep putting me in a new group ticket that, when fixed, wouldn't benefit me in the slightest.
speaking of useless help there were actually two technicians that stood out the most when it came to concerning this. one actually suggested that i go to the library to use the internet while it was down, which by itself wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that the library is a 40 minute drive one way, and second, if i was just going to go somewhere else for my internet, then what would be the point in signing up for it through frontier communications? the second technician actually stated that, while waiting for someone to show up, that it was my responsibility to actually be there to let them in.
while, under normal circumstances, this would be obvious, seeing as how this was the middle of the second week i straight out told them that what they were doing was absurd. they had an all day ticket open each and every time they said they would "fix the internet", meaning that, for the average person, they would've already missed a week and a half of work so far by just waiting on frontier to show up, which as i have stated earlier never happened, so the idea of missing more work days for the average person would've basically meant they would not have a job to return to by the time frontier got done.
the only reason that the internet finally started working again was more out of luck than it was on anything that frontier communications did. what happened was, while talking to one tech support guy, he suggested sending a replacement router. this, being frontier, didn't go as smoothly as one would expect. when talking to another tech support rep they noticed that the package was still marked awaiting to be shipped out… i don't remember how many days went by, but it had to be at least half a week or so. still, when the package got here, i entered in all my login information, and to my surprise, the internet actually started to work again. as you can imagine i was experiencing a mixture of joy and lividness…how can a company be so incompetent that they keep placing someone into multiple common causes, when the only problem is their router, and on top of it, keep stringing the same person along for about three weeks, which is made even worse seeing as how i kept telling each tech rep that i talked to the number of days that it has been off (one technician, after finding out that it had been off for two weeks, actually whistled when he heard this) as well as what the other technicians have already done.
this gets even more impressive when, after speaking to a technician, they would actually tell me that a survey was being sent to my email…think about that for a second. how in the world am i supposed to respond to it when my internet doesn't even work? also, given the number of technicians that i talked to, just how many of these surveys do you think i have at this point? this actually reminds me of the time where i called the internet help desk, and one of the things the person told me was that i was currently on ticket 100…that was about half a year or so ago as of submitting this, and i currently have no idea what the current number is.
the bottom line, however, is that it is safe to say that frontier communications is well aware of my complaints, especially when i have asked the tech reps, during moments of frustration, to look at my past complaints lodged and have them tell me if they noticed a pattern concerning the nature of my calls? speaking of which, even as i write this, two weeks after just having my internet restored, it is down yet again due to high packet loss. i ran a ping test on monday, and got 46% packet lost at 50 packets sent, so i called tech support and they said to wait till friday for someone to show up. when i asked them why i had to wait that long they said that was because they were overbooked as it was.
well i waited till wednesday, called and asked if they could make it on thursday, and they said they could. thursday, of course, came and went without anyone showing up, but i didn't worry too much about it because they would be here on friday. well friday came, and at about 1:30 i called and asked when they would be here, because i was wondering if i might have missed them, and i was told that three calls have been made that kept pushing back the appointment. the first call pushed it back to the 11th, the second pushed it back to the 14th, and the third pushed it back to the 17th.
also, as if this wasn't bad enough, things got even worse on 9/12/15 when the internet went out entirely, so i called frontier, and i learned that it was a group cause, and to wait until 9/15/15 for it to be fixed. by the time the date arrived for them to have the job done, as one can already guess where this is going, nothing was done, and to make matters worse, they said that no information had been entered as to what was causing the problem, so as far as i know this could just as well mean that the repair crew just sat around for four days doing nothing. how in the world do you take four days to do a job, and have nothing to report? the only good bit of news is that on 9/16/15 the internet finally started to work again, so it took a day longer than expected, but seeing as how this is frontier, i suppose even a day late is a step in the right direction. the only issue is that, while the internet works, it still runs at about 500-600 ms, and the internet speed has dropped to about 65 kb, so i'm right back to paying full price for less than half of the service i should be recieving.
still, other than experiencing a month of outage in a two month period, and experincing major slowdowns to the network, frontier has made the claim that they are working on fixing the problem which is in of itself most likely a lie, because this wouldn't be the first time or the last that i have been lied to by frontier. i have, of course, during momments of particularly poor service, been told by a tech that they are upgrading the network, which is why service happened to be bad at this time. even if i didn't have a relative who worked for frontier communications beforehand tell me right up that was a bald-faced lie, and that was the line they were told to feed customers who called when complaining about service, i could have figured out as much on my own despite having aspergers. through past experience, lying and taking advantage of their customers who have no other alternatives or options is all par for the course when it comes to dealing with frontier communications ever continuing dedication towards customer service, so here i am stuck with a service that seems to flip flop between varying greatly, to not working at all. to prove how bad network service is here are some ping test i took on 9/10/15 at 1:06 pm in an attempt to measure network performance.

packets: sent = 50, received = 29, lost = 21 (42% loss),
approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
minimum = 36ms, maximum = 49ms, average = 37ms

as you can see the latency isn't an issue here...it's the packet loss. right now, for me, this means that the internet has essentially ground to a halt, and is completely unusable. during the night, at 2:00 in the morning, i get full speed (140 kb) without a single problem. to further illustrate what is wrong with the current service i am recieving, here is another ping test done the same day, just eight hours apart on 9/10/15 at 9:32 pm.

packets: sent = 50, received = 46, lost = 4 (8% loss),
approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
minimum = 573ms, maximum = 842ms, average = 766ms

this time around what is happening is that i have gone from one extreme to the other in less than 12 hours. while packet lost is still an issue at 8%, and of course is going to cause further degradation of service, the more pressing issue is that the latency is more than half-way to the latency involved in using satellite internet. there is something seriously wrong here when a terrestrial ground based line has about half the latency as a signal that has to be sent from earth, to a satellite in outer space, and then sent back down to earth. terrestrially the latency should be around 150-200 ms with it being no higher than 250 ms or so for average network dependability...350 ms, while a high number for a land based line, should be considered the outer fringes of what is or is not acceptable as even around this point that is when degradation to performance starts to take effect.
even with outdated equipment, and slow internet speed, if frontier communications would at the very least get there latency under proper control, most of their problems would have been eliminated at that point. keep in mind… frontier's biggest problem at this point isn't speed… that's its second biggest problem. it's first biggest problem is that even what subpar service they do provide is essentially rendered useless when you can only take advantage of half the quality of service you're supposed to be receiving during normal waking hours.
this means that i am not paying $36 a month for 140 kb of service on two lines, and that i am instead paying $36 a month for 70 kb of service on two lines. while one can sit and say that this is more than enough for browsing websites, and sending email, this is however completely unreasonable if you're trying to stream any content from netflix, trying to play an online game (due to high latency), or trying to download digital goods such as movies, video games, and some software. in short this means that in order to use a service that i am paying for, i have to be up all night long like some kind of vampire in order to get at lease mediocre service, and yes, i am being generous when i call what frontier communications is doing "service."
to make matters worse, even though i have two internet lines into my house, i cannot however bridge those two connections. if i could, however, this would mean that i could theoretically get the full benefit of a single line of service, but the question is, even if this were possible, do you really want to be paying for an extra internet line just to be getting the kind of service you should be receiving any way from the first one? this question is of course rhetorical, and further helps to highlight the point that, when frontier communications is your isp, expect continuing lesser degrees of service, while being expected to pay extra for it. nowhere outside of an s&m club would people actually expect it to be standard practice to mistreat and take advantage of their customers, and still remain in business
the only good thing i can say at this point is that, when my subscription to world of warcraft expired thanks to the three week outage i had, i didn't bother to renew it. i figured why bother when, a week before the constant high packet loss hits, i kept getting about 700-800 ms of latency with the average speed being around 70 kb...exactly half of the speed of what the current plan that i am paying for, internet max, is capable of providing, and as established beforehand, even at full speed 140 kb is a joke in this day and age which is why the subscription to netflix my family currently has is a waste of money, and why they are using an antenna instead, so as to get some reliable service for once. the only good news so far is that the internet has only been bad during the weekends, and during evenings for the weekdays, but knowing frontier, i can expect things to worsen to the point where it will be back at the 20-30 kb range 24/7, and by which point i will still be paying $36 a month for service all because those two magic words, "up to," are in frontier communications's contract which has them fully covered even if, as is the case with a few customers, their speedtests are delivering speeds that are slightly above or below dialup.
i can understand that a company has to make a profit, but when a company's practices are this exploitative, and frontier has shown every intent and desire to keep price gouging its customers by continuing to stress an already overtaxed system that was put in place sometime during the 90s, and yet still keeps insisting that they are just not enough people in the area to make improvements...something this bad and wrong has got to be fixed. frontier had no problems in improving their system after the class action lawsuit of october 2014 began to gain momentum, and yet, even after making improvements to their system, here it is starting to slow down again because, as i have already stated before, they are grabbing anyone they can so as to maximize as much profit as possible even though they already know that it will just bring further degradation in performance for everyone that is on it, and yet throughout this, as before, frontier will just continue to say there is not enough people on it to make upgrading worthwhile, or as a way to avoid giving a reason as to why, casually comment that they are no current plans for upgrades to be done in the area, and to just wait until such plans have been made...knowing frontier this will be done about the same time the carassius auratus, which is now a fish, grows legs.
the sad part of all of this is that, if frontier really had to, they could easily make improvements to their system that would benefit everyone on it, and actually justify the grant money that has been given to them by the state of west virginia, but as stated, why put any effort into doing that when, not only are you the only game in town, but also you can just do whatever you please because your contract is so draconian that there is nothing present to protect the people you are actively exploiting. you should not be forced to deal with congestion that is so bad that you are only getting 21.4% of your full internet speed, and yet are having to pay as if you were getting full service. going back to the bottled water analogy, this would be like selling a bottle of water for $100, and then slowly putting less and less water into the bottles, until your selling a bottle that is barely 20% full for $100… no matter how you look at it you just aren't getting what you are paying for even at these overinflated prices.
also, speaking of bad service, on numerous occasions i have had frontier tech support actually directed me to http://frontier.speedtest.com when conducting speed tests. i have, of course, pointed out that the results i would get from this site would be worthless, because frontier's speed tests are set up so that there are fewer devices in the way between points a and b, and so it would be useless for real world testing. on numerous occasions i have ran a ping test where the latency is always higher when i run it from the command prompt then it is from when i run it from frontier's website. for example: if i am getting 600 ms of latency when i run it from the command prompt i will instead get about 350 ms of latency when i run it from frontier's speed test website. i have explained to frontier's tech representative numerous times that running a speed test from their website would be no different than having a test done by the manufacturers of an suv saying that their vehicles get 30 miles per gallon, and then in the footnotes, says that this is only true as long as you are going downhill, with your foot off the accelerator, and are about to fall off a cliff. i have made more than one tech laugh at this analogy, and in fact have even gone as far to have one tech agree with everything i was saying, and had him tell me that is the very reason why he doesn't use the site frontier uses for speedtesting.
frontier knows that their speed test are unrealistic, unreliable, and has more presence in theory than in reality if one wanted to be in outright denial about frontier being corrupt, and yet i have still heard frontier dismiss customers complaints about their slow internet speed, saying that these cases were only self-reported by people who are experiencing problems... as opposed to what? people who aren't having any problems at all? why would someone run a speed test in the first place if there wasn't something wrong? this makes about as much sense as saying that the only people who complains about roof repair are those who are currently experiencing a leaky roof, and as a result, these people should be ignored and nothing should be done in order to fix the problem they are having.
worse yet, from first-hand experience, i can already tell you that frontier has no qualms about preying on the ignorant. i remember when being offered internet security, identity protection, and backup services by frontier, all of which i later found out to be worthless services that didn't do what you imagined. internet security was a joke due to the fact they charge you $10 a month for internet security something that you could've gotten yourself for about $50 a year. as for their identity protection, their definition of protection is to inform you that someone has stolen your identity, and then say good luck in fixing it, and then going to hang up the phone. for a few dollars less you can get identity protection from someone else, and on top of it, they will actually do something about the problem, instead of just informing you that a problem exists. as for their backup services, given how corrupt and greedy this corporation is, does anyone really want to take a chance in backing their stuff up with these people? also, even if you were foolhardy enough to trust them, how long do you think it would take in order to back everything up of importance on your computer?
we're talking about 18 kb at best here…most family photos that people take are at least 2.5 mb in size, meaning if you were to upload just one picture, it would take about two minutes and twenty seconds, and of course because most people are going to be uploading about 100 or so photos of their most recent vacation to disney world, the beach, grandma's house, etc., uploading all that is going to take a while. now, of course, to reduce file size people can compress/resize their images, but how many people do you think are tech savvy enough to do that? if someone is technologically illiterate enough to not know that they can get a years worth of internet security for about $50, call me jaded if you want, but i seriously do not see this person being smart enough to compress or resize anything.
with everything i just said, i haven't much else to go on, except to say that if you are not convinced at this point that frontier communications is the worst company there is to do business with, then i just don't know what to tell you. the only thing i want this company to do as of now is to actually start delivering the service that i am paying for, and to bring my internet speed back up to 240 kb, but since this is frontier were talking about, i'll stick with getting the latency down to at least 250 ms as for right now…you know…baby steps. beyond that, since i'm heavily dependent on social security, and the internet is being used to fill a lot of needs on the cheap as far as communication, entertainment, and news is concern, i'll be happy to settle instead for frontier footing the entire bill required to buy a new house, and then settling the relocation costs required to get me and my family to a state that has better internet service. since this will never happen for obvious reasons that just leaves the first choice of frontier actually improving their quality of service or lack thereof for the betterment of people living in what can easily be considered as the digital dark ages.
there has actually been newly formed countries that have had better internet than west virginia. in a first world nation we should not be having third or fourth world technology that is actually required by the masses to perform their job, conduct their businesses, or to live their lives. frontier communications is a sick company that is actively profiteering from its customers who have no real alternative, or legal resource to turn to. to allow such a group of people to do this in this day and age should not only be unthinkable, but also unconstitutional.
the laws and rules of the land exist for one reason and one reason alone: to help and protect the people that it governs over. if, however, a law exists that does more harm than good, then that law needs to be changed, amended, or completely abolished. frontier communications has been taking advantage of loopholes in the laws to continue to take advantage of its clients that have little if any legal recourse. these laws need to be changed to adapt to the times, and to stop frontier communications from taking advantage of its customers. please help west virginia actually move up in the world, because it is without exaggeration when i say, that as far as technology is concerned, west virginia actually ranked dead last when it comes to their internet service… please help us do something about it.

tell me this: with the endless amount of complaining we do about frontier...all over north america... how are we going to get them to a. listen; b. fix the problem; or c. shut down their company completely? in our rural wv county, frontier also took over old verizon equipment and lines. some places are fast. some places are absolutely at sub dial-up speeds. people in our county seat complain that speeds are "soooo slow," yet when i've connected to their wifi, it's blazing fast compared to where we live. it took 48 seconds to load a simple website this morning at my house. i loaded the same website in less than ten seconds just three miles down the road on a different frontier loop. and those people complain that it's slow? geez! at 3 am, it's not any better. do we all shut off our internet at home and wait it out...boycott frontier? people in our area have constantly called only to get shoddy customer service. we believe their csrs are trained to be jerks when they see our accounts come up. we have submitted a petition, asking for them to help us get new equipment. they tell us they just cannot afford it. but we all know that the deepest, most remote hollows in our county have gotten brand new equipment, and households are able to connect 3-4 devices with super fast speeds any time of the day with no problems. we have gone to the attorney general and every public commission, state and federal, that we can think of and nothing has been done. our speeds have actually slowed down, almost like someone at frontier is making us "pay" for our complaints against them. we are business owners, students, and internet enthusiasts who just want efficient service. i forgi t how fast internet can be, especially when i went out of town and was able to load the birthday section on facebook or watch a short video or a newscast with no delay. i was astounded. why is this such a fight? when did we the people lose ground on wanting great service?

i was quoted a rate of $120 if i bundled phone, internet and tv. we already had phone and internet with frontier. cancelled directv based on expectations we would save $60 a month by switching.

surprise! first bill shows up for $180! when ifinallygot through to question the difference, i was told the lower rate only applied to new customers and since i already was a frontier customer, i was not eligible. they knew i was an existing customer when they gave me the quote!

directv offered me a substantial discount to come back, so i cancelled vantage tv. new bill shows up from frontier and i am hit with a $95 early termination fee. not mentioned when i cancelled vantage tv. i would not have cancelled if they had honored the quoted price.

in contrast, the new directv bill was for exactly what was quoted. we received several followup calls to ensure we were happy with the technician and pleased with the quality of the service. and i just received a followup survey today from directv. from frontier, nothing. unbelievable.

currently on hold with this shitty company. i've been waiting for two weeks to get service installed in my new home and the date it was due no one came to my home. they had the wrong address and phone number, meanwhile they ask you for your updated information. i'm cancelling the service and i do not recommend anyone using them. i've been on hold with multiple people since the 01/05/17 and no one can come out to fix the problem. horrible horrible horrible.

omg i hate this company. we used to have verizon fios long ago and it was great. switched to comcast and figured i would try frontier again. quoted $124/mo on the phone. first bill over $400 (granted month and a half). corrected the fraudulent charges and got it to about $220/mo. then next bill came back just like the first one. repeat and still ongoing. promised $400 amazon gift card and never came. i reached out since they didn't said i didn't meet the criteria because the billing changed. i told them it was their error and they said i am hosed. service sucked. caller id, caller f'ing id never worked on our phones. channels cancelled. gave us an old and used cable box. said hbo was half off but half off means $16.99 to them. this company is fraudlent and the devil. cancelling tonight and going back to comcast. ugh.

we have had fios for ove 8 years and had no issues unti frontier took over. our lines have been up and down for the last 3 weeks and we have spent countless hours on the phone with them. all they do is tell you to unplug everthing and reboot it. they finally sent a service person and he got it up for a little while and it went down again. this is so frustrating, considering going back to charter/spectrum at this point, really old slow technology but maybe it will work

my service works great, subscribed at 100/100 and getting above that most of the time....

however

i signed up and the salesman told me about their wifi router and that i could lease it from them or buy it outright for $150. he also told me i could just buy their recommended device on amazon for $90 instead.

the installer also mentioned a router and agreed i would be better served by my existing gigabit cisco router and don't need theirs and the $10 was a a rip-off.

sounds good but.. i am being charged $10/mo for equipment i never received. the billing department says it is required and they can not remove the charge. when i asked to escalate my concern, they gave me a link to "office of president"

who the hell pays $240 for an $80 router that is worse than my existing equipment? (and then it still belongs to them after its been paid for three times over!?)

i am giving them one week to get a response through "office of the president" then it is directly being reported to cpuc, fcc, ftc and any other acronym that can help me or make their lives suck. love to go in on a class action, i am being charged for equipment that was never delivered to me, any lawyers in the house?

worst case scenario i will underpay by the $10 a month and then dispute with collections and credit reporting agencies. i am keeping transcript of every interaction from day one, please do the same. ask for employee id, they have to provide it and it could be useful in litigation.

also, please don't abuse the employees. these are clock punchers that would probably be fired for helping you. so sad.

bellflower, ca - frontier charges erroneous fees, takes more than an hour on hold to reach a customer service rep just to be told there is nothing they can do to waive the additional fees. i am in a contract that is supposed to guarantee the rate of our plan, however they can add bs fees without prior notice and expect you to pay the increased bill because you are in a contract and cannot cancel the service without paying additional cancellation fees.
there has to be a class act law suit soon against this provider. we are being monopolized into having to use certain providers based on the coverage area and this should be illegal. frontier communications e-mail address given on the monthly statement is a lie and not valid! this company is very deceiving, dishonest, crooked, and overall a horrible company!!!!

they told me i could save 20 a month by up grading my plan. they then hit me with two $200 cancellation charges. i called 2 weeks before my auto payment went threw and they told me they would did it and it would still be on my bill but not to worry about it. $400 in charges and 10 over draft charges from my bank. called them up and they told me they would mail me a check for everything i was charged. i asked if they could do a card refund and was told that's not how they do it. 5 days later no check. called again they never sent the check. 5 more days no check. that time i called and they told me they dont send checks anymore, they credit the card used. checked the amount and they game me the 400 back, but the 300 in over draft fees they put towards my bills. i pre paid 6 months for their mess up. i hate frontier. no other choice where i live,

i had a live chat with frontier today about my bill being 25% higher than the month before. here is their justification...

[austin] the additional charges on your account are due to the federal surcharges increasing by the government back in september so we had to back date the charges, and they did not notify us until this month of the change.

so, this huge telecommunications company doesn't even keep up to date on fed surcharges? and they don't even know how much they have been paying the feds until 3 months late? then they bill the "partial month charges" all at once so i get a surprise extra $65.00 bill to pay them? what a joke of a company.

frontier took over verizon fios here in tampa and i have had nothing but grief and aggravation. i spoke to 15 people just to try and transfer service from one apartment to the next. they were only two miles apart. i tried to set it up a month ahead of time. they completely dropped the ball. no one showed up for the appointment. and then they told me i would have to wait another month even though there is a guy out here in my apartment parking all the time sleeping in his van. no one actually tried to help. i had several people pretend to be managers or supervisors. they gave me fake names and extensions and never followed up. the most helpful individual was the cancellation lady in making sure the services got cancelled. but now i'm fight just to get a representative period. i just need to know when i will get the money back that they owe me. they took a payment right before my cancellation. so my account is just sitting with an overage and all the chat people continue to either close the chat while im still in queue or just plan f%@king degenerate unhelpful assholes as usual. it doesn't f%@king matter is everyone working there is us based. they might as well outsource it to india! having an american idiot doesn't make service any better. i've never yelled at so many people in my life. they are infuriating and should not be in business. they keep buying up this large metropolitan areas and don't have the resources to service them. take the f%@king big boy pants off and leave the work to the companies that know what they are funcking doing!

frontier communications has the worst customer service of any telecom i’ve ever worked with, by a landslide. their customer service has been beyond broken since they took over the west florida fios market on april 1, 2016. the performance of their network has also degraded since the takeover.

as an existing customer calling for any customer service scenarios (billing, service upgrades, etc.), i've never spoken to any human in under 15 minutes. i've typically had to talk to more than two people before i've been helped. calling for tech support, i have never spoken to a *useful* human in less than 40 minutes. i've also made multiple unsuccessful attempts at contacting frontier during this time, where i was transferred into a disconnect or transferred into an endless hold.

today when i called to see what i could do to lower my bill, i was of course met the same conundrum. that’s when i decided to call in as a *new* customer on a second line, while i was still waiting for customer service on the first. the new customer sales guy was on in under 2 minutes.

of course i asked about current rates for internet service, and he quoted me something at just over *half* the cost of what i was under contract with them for. and on top of that he offered a $400 amazon gift card. so then i asked the sales guy why he would want to sell a not-so-great product with horrible support, and i told him of my history with frontier. he responded “i’m sorry about that, but i work for a retail partner of frontier. i can give you my phone numbers for corporate if that would help.”

as a mostly happy, low maintenance customer of pretty much every isp / telco i’ve ever used, including verizon for many years while they built and managed fios, my mind is blown. how something so great could be ruined so quickly… great job for setting a new record, frontier!

last spring the frontier internet at our business was out for a month. a month. on one of multiple occasions i spent on the phone for hours trying to resolve the problem, a customer service thingie told me that i should be careful because the "situation was very dangerous." this was just the best of the 162,000 reasons/lies they gave me for the problem. and no, a service tech never showed up the entire month. funny thing, we were in the process of selling the business at the time. the new owners found another provider and we finally cancelled the non-existent service, which was about as easy as getting a gila monster to loosen its grip.

now, our very lame home internet, via of frontier as well, is out. has been for five days. this happened a week after i called to upgrade our serve from 3 mpg (! which was really 1.28 mpgs when i tested it) to a whopping 7 mpgs (which i was hoping might give us 3 mpgs?).

after a three hour hold--don't you just love their jaunty hold music!--i was told it was because "the port had been closed". after another hour on hold, this port was magically reopened. and if i would just restart my modem it would work fine. nope. when i asked why had the port--whatever that is--been closed, the customer service person said it might have accidentally been shut when i upgraded. i asked, "so does everyone lose service for several days when they upgrade? "oh, well, not for several days. but a couple of days," said the queen of bullshit. she also told me a tech would be out tomorrow with a new modem and will fix everything. ha. ha. ha.

i know people have nothing but bad things to say about time warner/spectrum cable, but it's our only other option, beside moving.

frontier is the only company that has ever motivated me to rant online, not once, but twice, despite the futility of it. it is one of the weirdest, creepiest, most deceptive companies in the world. may someone someday shut their port permanently.

frontier's on demand service has sucked ever since it took over verizon customers in florida. still not better. much of the on demand programming is in sd in reduced-box format, many episodes of popular shows are missing, and the inability to fast forward through shows is a huge hassle, especially if you pause a program and it resets back to the beginning! i hate that i am paying the same for frontier service as i was paying for verizon but it's so much worse! what an abuse of customers.

i was a verizon customer for years when f took over. around september 2016 they reached out to me saying that my verizon terms (which they were honoring) were expiring and i needed to re-up with them to protect myself from pricing increases. they made me a sweet deal they never kept. promising a lower price than b4 and even threw in hbo free for 6 months. guess what, my bill went through the roof anyways as they never honored the price quote and started billing me double for hbo/showtime! i called and corrected the problem (or at least i thought i did) on two occassions since sept 2016 but the bills kept getting bigger for these double-priced premium channels and they even added a $9.99 security package on top of it. i never ordered any of these! they finally disconnected me yesterday because of my disputed balance. this is after the fact that on the 24th i paid a $64 fee to an agent in collections in order to "avoid disconnection" while my dispute was under review. collections didn't care, they just shrugged their shoulders and extorted another $106 out of me to get me back up. they said the only way my account can be reviewed is when it's out of the collections dept. otherwise the account is locked out for anyone in the billing department/customer service to review. so in essence, i had to pay to get customer service to continuing reviewing my dispute (sick bastards). still waiting now for reconnection. siting here on hold for over 1 hr waiting to hear. these rat thieves are doing this to so many other people besides me. it makes me sick to to my stomach to know there are less sophisticated people out there that are being victimized but have no clue how to fight. this shouldn't happen in america.

frontier is the worst cable company i have ever dealt with! they suck!! the support people are horrible and stupid. they don't know anything and always screw up my account. they must not train them at all. every time i call in to customer service they make a change to my account and totally screw it up. i made a change to my plan and was confirmed $129.95 per month. well after the change was made, the premium accounts were removed and i had to take two days off to have the cable boxed replaced twice and reprogrammed. also, when i received my bill for the change it was $342!! one day i lost a day of pay at work and they never showed up. total incompetence!!
the transition from verizon to frontier was a joke. they never communicated anything to me by either email for usps mail. i found out by googling it my mistake. then it took them 3 months to transition the system over.

" tech support says they can't issue a service ticket cause the line is in spec and customer service won't because it's a "tech problem." neither side talks to the other and leave it to the customer to act as go between for them.

hey there,
i spent quite a few hours last night reviewing identical complaints from california customers that span the time after they took over for verizon back in may 2016. this was on the heels of the runaround we got this week. after some research...

solution:
we just transferred to spectrum/charter who will buy your contract with frontier up to $500, and we are getting out of the insanity.

there are a few class action suits in play. one is in wv that is now in the court system and their lawyers are just as slimy as them. it would seem that they are a monopoly in some areas and hold businesses and residential customers hostage and fleece them. there are even national news clips informing customers and calling them out for wasting/stealing of state funds that grant for service/equipment improvements.

another is in cali as of sept 2016:

ayer is represented by todd m. friedman and adrian r. bacon of the law offices of todd m. friedman, p.c.

the frontier communications internet service false advertising class action lawsuit is dorothy ayer v. frontier communications corporation, case no. 5:16-cv-01946, in the u.s. district court for the central district of california.

back in may, the mouthpiece for their crooked company even promised a fix-it plan after a customer backlash post-takeover of verizon. all lies. sen russ feingold has been arguing to make internet a utility so it can be regulated. lobbying has been a corrupting factor, and the fcc has no teeth and/or has been paid off by deep pockets. our glorious politicians have de-regulated across the board to bring things to where we are now.
the issues we are all having, have been happening since 2011 in various areas in the us. phantom bill increases, rudeness and incompetency, deplorable service, lack of service, or no service whatsoever and you are transferred or hung up on. we have the cpuc in cali that governs our services, but only a class action suit would be effective.
yes, overwhelming!
i suggest taking our route, using another company to absorb the early termination hit and getting the service you were promised thru another provider. money is our best weapon in this battle.
this company does not care, squeezing and bleeding it before they sell it off, crooks and pimps and thieves!
their ftr stock price has tanked, go figure. losing customers are we? it is a fact that they dial back internet service after they get you on the hook. they make a ton of $ by doing this and give us the runaround while the ceo walks away with $6mil a year, laughing, as she turns over the motor on her new yacht. someone referred to them as a mafia of internet, i agree.

take advantage of charter/spectrums offer. cut the tie and change the game!

i cannot understand at all how frontier expects to do business when they offer such horrible service. i had to go help a 94 year old customer today because frontier had stood her up twice for an appointment. she has been without internet for 2 weeks now, right before xmas.

now here is the fun part. i told her i don't talk to these idiots (frontier) because i always end up just wanting to choke them though the phone. so she called them anyway, told them about the 2 missed appointments and told them her problem, no internet 2 weeks, along with her age 94. they wanted her to crawl around and unplug the modem, did i mention she is 94! that's old even for tampa!

they did this while i was listening. anyway i had to take over the call. i told them i already unplugged and reset the modem twice. still no internet. anyway they wanted me to unplug the modem again... 'i already did this, twice.'...."yes sir, but you are not a certified technician."

this is where i went through the fricken roof, and his 'supervisor' took over the call.
i think my exact words were something to the effect of "mf what the f did you just say to me!"
i am usually very restrained. if i go off there is a damn good reason.
why would unplugging a modem requires a certified technician?
how would having a 94 year old woman be equal to a certified tech?
i have been fixing computers in tampa since computers have been a thing.
i also taught for years and even trained a+ and eset back when that was a thing.
this idiot knows nothing of me..... damn still pissed... anyway.

his supervisor took over.
not exactly sure he apologized for the other idiot, but tried to carry on none the less.
told him "we needed a new modem. period. end of story"
"ok. but i agree with the other guy i need you to unplug the mode....

it was then i took the phone away from my ear from fear of killing this dumbass with my thoughts.

i let him know we will be calling spectrum.
i think i also mentioned something about a nice place he could put his own head...
this was after he demanded respect.. i guess because he could answer a phone?
i asked him what the hell for!
standing up a 94 year old woman twice! leaving her without the services she is paying for 2 weeks?

i should really stay off the phone with these so called "technicians".

imagine what it would take for you to say "mf what the f did you just say to me" in front of a 94yo customer that you don't really know that well.

i hung up then before i set the world on fire with my mind!

the is no reason in the world anyone should have to suffer though the 'service' that is frontier.

i left out the part where they charge here for 5 boxes she has to have to watch t.v.
i don't know how this is not abuse of the elderly.

took the computer back to my house.
i have spectrum. went right online.
did a few updates. took it back to her

anyway, she called spectrum and they will be out in three days!
i'm sure if one of those days wasn't xmas they would be here even sooner.

there is no reason anyone should have to suffer through frontier.
at least the other guys will show up when you call them. don't really care who else as long as they aren't frontier.

why pay for a service that simply isn't there when you need them and they really don't care at all!

anyone who has problems with frontier, especially because you can't communicate via email (meaning you have no proof of the lies they tell), allow me to help: do a chat on a computer. computers have "printscreen". tell the representative all about your troubles, and allow them to make you a better offer, or at least the same offer. be sure to ask if that is the only amount that will be on your bill, and i'm sure they will say it is. then hold your ctrl button, and press prtsc button. open paint, and click paste. save the chat, and if necessary, do a few more chats, and printscreen and copy them to paint. save them, and make a call when you get sick of them trying to charge you more than you agreed to pay. let the representative tell you they don't see anything showing where you were offered internet for that price, or that amount of time. then read them one of your chats. it shocks them, because they didn't consider printscreen when they were finding ways to cheat you. i know this because that's what i did. the rep i spoke to said she didn't see any proof at all that someone offered me internet for any price locked in for any amount of time, so i read her the chat. she suddenly saw that....hmmmm....i now have proof that they lie, and i intend to take it to court if necessary. i love being computer savvy.

made an appointment to transfer service to my new house. the customer service rep kept trying to up-sell me, so i told her to stop and please complete my order. she input my phone number incorrectly into the order. i contacted them again, and the new rep assured me the number was changed, and even emailed me a screenshot of her computer to show that the number was changed. however, the online dashboard did not show the phone number change so i called again. the phone number was once again confirmed, despite the discrepancy online. by this point, i was beginning to suspect this mistake was done on purpose. these customer service people have very few ways of seeking retribution. if i missed the appointment due to a wrong phone number... i'd be sure it was on purpose. sure enough, the appointment was missed due to a wrong phone number.

back when i still had verizon i had received a monthly $20 credit on my bill for agreeing to sign up for 2 years. after the 2 years expired my bill increased by $20. no surprises there.

enter frontier. they kept sending me notices about how now that my bill credits had expired i should call them to "review" my account and possibly get a lower priced bundle. that was a huge mistake.

the customer service rep i spoke with "accidentally" cancelled my account while putting together a bundle which ended up costing more than i was already paying. when i asked to please put me back to what i had originally, she claimed that since my account had been closed and then reopened i was no longer "grand-fathered" and couldn't receive the lower priced package i had prior to calling them!

when i pointed out the b.s. of the cancellation being her fault, she claimed there wasn't anything she could do about it.

after verizon sold their texas (and other internet business) to frontier, we here in rural central texas actually saw an improvment - only one outage in months. verizon had outages every few weeks. but sunday the network went down hard and their website, accessed by cell phone, offered no information. i tweeted with ask frontier on twitter but soon discovered they knew nothing.

when i called frontier directly i went through phone menu hell that seemed circular, always returning me to the main menu. i finally resorted to pressing buttons randomly and got a message saying there was an outage in my area. period. no more info. my wife finally reached a person twenty minutes later and she was very nice but clueless. she first told us on our speakerphone there was no outage in our area, which we disputed, then that there was an outage caused by "surplus" users. i explained that the internet here went down in the middle of the night according to my router log and there were no surplus users in our neighborhood out in the middle of nowhere and that i could ping their dns in dallas, but nothing beyond that. she then put me on hold and came back later to say there might be an outage but it hadn't been officially reported yet. duh, what were my wife and i doing on the phone? she finally said to look at the the third party site downdetector for more information.

we went to our in-laws 40 mins. away to use their internet to conduct business. when we returned we disccovered the router log showed the service came back on approx. 12 hours after it went down. i still can't find out what happened and the frontier pages i visited never mentioned there was any problem during or after the event.

downdetector still shows outages across the us, with large cities like la and dallas and tampa being hit the worst.

there are no reliable alternatives in our area but now were actually considering having two unreliable service providers for our business, frontier and one of the small microwave tower companies, so we at least have something to rely if one or the other goes down.

frontier communications is one of the worst companies in america. i was given a 3 year promotion and after 1 1/2 years they started charging $5.00 more. they would credit the money back only to do it the following month. i eventually cancelled and waited 3 months for the return of the credit on my account. during that time they kept deducting money from the credit and even lied about when the service was terminated. in addition, the service is spotty and slow. they are using verizon's infrastructure and no upgrades in sight. i would suggest you use any company besides them!

i have had it. my next complaint goes to the public utility commission. i have been talking to different people to get my bill corrected for two months. initially, my contract with them expired, i called to sign up again. the first woman i talked to was very condescending, she wanted to know exactly what channels i would be watching and explained to me that i should know every channel that i have. finally, i got fed up and hung up. i called back and a got a guy, he seemed to know what he was doing, i asked to have my contract renewed and i wanted to return a router that i got sucked into by verizon and was paying $10.00 a month for because it was suppose to be faster. it's not and i want to go back to the free one. he supposedly renewed my contract and then put me in touch with a tech that sent me a new router. great.

i get the next bill. it is the same as the last one, they had not signed me up on a new contract and i was still being charged for the router that i returned. so i called again and talked to a guy. he told me my contract had expired on the date that i made my last call. i had to explain that no, my contract expired a month before that call and that i was attempting to renew my contract when i made the call. i told him that i felt like i had been over charged because i had attempted to renew the contract and i had no plans for paying the extra amount. he let me know that he could not adjust the bill and if i did not pay the full amount that my service would be disconnected and my account would be turned over to a collection agency. my head was about to explode at this point. i asked about the router and wanted to know why i still being charged when i had returned the "verizon router". he said that he would have to put in an order to see if i had returned it. i gave him the tracking number and the person at his company that had signed for it, but that was not good enough.

i asked to speak to a supervisor. he said that it was after hours (it was 5:30 p.m. cst) and there were no supervisors available. what! the company is running these shifts without supervisors. no response from him. i will get a call in 24 - 48 hours. i knew i would not get one and i told him that. he assured me i would get one. guess what, no call!

so i wrote an email to the "office of the president" explaining my situation. they assure you that a member of management will be in contact with you. that was 2 weeks ago and nothing from them either. seems like frontier does not care if they lose a customer that was with verizon for 22 years and subsequently has been moved to them.

i plan on making a formal complaint and then i am moving my service. i have had it

frontier is absolutely the worst cable company i have ever had the displeasure of encountering. they have the audacity to raise rates with sub-par service. spectrum internet speed starts at 100mbps and they are cable not fiber optic which has larger/faster capability. unreal! if you have the chance do not sign up with frontier! i had no choice, verizon fios sold it to these clowns! they do not care if you drop them as they know they suck and can do nothing to fix it. that is very telling! i'm done with these losers!!!!

i helped my aunt cancel frontier service 2 months ago after over a dozen billing issues in 6 months. we paid off everything in full and returned the equipment. we were told the account is closed.

nothing last month and now she got a past due bill this month. i called and after 1 hour 27 minutes talked to billing and verified the account is indeed closed. i was told i need to talk to collections department and the billing representative would transfer me. the "transfer" ended up hanging up on me. called back and after 48 minutes learned collections is now closed.

i really hate this company and although my service is great, i cant wait to cancel when my contract expires in 3 months except alternative in tampa is charter communications.

i may give up cable and internet since both companies have terrible reputations for service.

i hate city of tampa government for selling out and giving these companies exclusive rights.

citizens of tampa must bend over and take it to get internet or cable. .....carlos

i am reluctant to say say frontier communications is an abortion of a company and that ceo daniel j. mccarthy, and the entire customer service and tech support staff are a collective bunch of incompetent, uneducated, unqualified morons! my reluctance only comes from my understanding what a horrible insult that is to the other incompetent, uneducated, and unqualified morons of the world because these tools are in a league of their own.
now, i could go on and on about my experience in the twilight zone , errrrrrrrrrrrrr i mean my experience with frontier but it pretty much seems to mirror the previous 1,792 victims comments. thus ,i have decided i would do my part to add whatever i can to this great platform for customers to sound off, spread the word, and make them be accountable , a trait that has almost vanished from our society which is quickly weakening our country.
below is a link to the fcc websites page to file complaints about the fcc approved sale of land lines in california, texas, florida.
the second linkis to the fcc,s approval of the sale between verizon and frontier with phone numbers of the powers that be in charge of the approval process and transition. if you take the time to read the official documents you'll see how it is all about the customer. joke ! its about money in their pockets because they have failed to produce what they were approved for..11-..25 mbps every day between 5:30-9:00am and the same from 4:00-9:00pm. , these speeds are slower than dial up because their servers are not capable of handling the heavy usage times and that little fact is quickly brushed under the table in the approval process by some cold hard cash! in the end the customer gets f%@ked as usual. thank you for this platform to vent and please consider posting these links on the front page of this forum

yes!!! frontier sucks!!!!!

i have been working to get my internet reconnected for 7 days now. frontier is the worst company i have ever had to deal with. they make idle promises. no one is trained to handle issues and effect a conflict in a positive way. they are rude, pathetic liars!

i have 3 kids needing to study for finals. i have been working to get the internet fixed for almost a week straight! every day being promised that it would be done within a few hours. it started as it would take "up to 24 hours" and when it did t for the third straight day, the agent said "oh i have escalated it to get it done in a few hours. ". bullshit. the next day i call again. this person says that when the last person put in the order to reconnect it erased all the orders collectively. so none were out in. this agent even bad mouthed frontier. saying they have people that don't know what they are doing and shouldn't be there.

bottom line, it's not day 7. i have spoke to them every day for a week. i am actually on hold right now as i write this again. first call today was 1 hour and 59 minutes. last call the guy said oh sorry can't help you need to talk to a department that is closed and won't be back until monday. then i asked to speak to a manager and he put me on hold. then..... suddenly...... as if by magic, i was disconnected. so calling back and on hold again now.

this company should be put out to pasture and shot! they are the worst. i am going to go to get a hot spot, cancel frontier and encourage everybody neninknow to cancil their frontier internet!!!

im emailing my whole home oweners assoc, and confirming what they have been saying about frontier internet being the worst in the world!!!! we all should cancel it and go to att or something else! they won't change until they feel it!!!

nearly every day the internet is inaccessible for periods of time. this never happened with verizon! i need the internet in order to do my work. i hope frontier suffers a well-deserved trip into oblivion and verizon has to step back in. (i won't even go into the number of hours i've spent on the phone with them trying to getting billing issues resolved only to be promised things that never happen. i give up, which was probably their goal in the first place.)

i also dislike frontier. besides the fact that our internet speed has always been poor. last month at the end of our promo period i called and said i did not want to change providers but that an increase of almost $50 per month was unacceptable. . jody told me fine i will put you back on the promotional rate. i will also refund the increase we were charging you for november. i thought hallelujah this company might be different maybe i can stay with them...oh well dream on. december bill had the credit but the rate was not changed. called "customer service" 20 minutes later i spoke with imani "i don't see that on your account let me see what i can do." i could no longer wait had to hang up and called back that night. this time after 30 minutes i spoke with alisha. she said pretty much what imani said, though she agreed that it did not make sense that i would have been happy with a one time refund and then be happy paying the higher rate i asked to speak with a supervisor. one hour and five minutes later travis came on the line. he said that both imani and alisha had told me i needed to speak with saves (neither had) and they were closed now. he asked if he could call them tomorrow and call me back....he never called back. the next evening i called and spoke with richard ( a woman) after being on hold for over 45 minutes she came back and said she could get me back on the promotional rate... success..... then because between waiting to speak with her and for her to get back with an answer i had been on the line with frontier for 1.5 hrs my phone died. arrgh !!. called back spoke with janae. i was not happy and asked for someone to call me back the next day (it had gotten quite late by now) she took my number and said someone would call back.....no one did. i called back the next day. spoke with jumer. she said frontier wanted to keep me as a customer and we could definitely work something out and i should be able to get my promo rate back....i asked for an email with that info ...
she said i can't do that. i asked if a supervisor would call me back, to confirm our conversation. she said she could ask but not guarantee that anyone would call she put me on hold and spoke with saves. after 20 minutes she came back on the line and said bruce from saves had said "no we have promotions that apply for you" ...??? i asked to speak with him or a supervisor. jumer put me on hold. i finally had to hang up after being on hold for an hour.
frontier sucks, they lie, different people say different things so i never know who to believe and worst of all, twice they said i'll call you back and they didn't.... i am actually dumbfounded they say they have customer service they don't serve there customers at all.......

bruh weve had verizon for over 15 years since we moved here and the internet maybe went out once every 3 years for like 10 mins. the cable never went out. since frontier has taken over florida our cable or our internet goes out every single f%@king night god this makes me so mad even though ive come to expect it cause its like what then f%@k man. once or twice okay no problem you guys are just getting here. but every single night and day either the internet is down or the cable dosent work is f%@king ridiculous like what the f%@k are these idiots doing you literally cant f%@k something up so bad. just stop touching shit dont press any buttons because everyone at frontier is a f%@king chimpanzee with yellow boots. its really not f%@king fair at all verizon just basically gave us to cricket. and was like f%@k it. and whats worse is we pay these guys for half a f%@king service because half the time the shit dosent work anyway. frontier hands down worst company ive ever interacted with.

been on the phone for 4 plus hours trying to see what frontier would offer. was disconnected from them 4 times, given three different offers, of which each time i talked to them the previous offer was not available, except at a higher price. i will stay with brighthouse / spectrum. frontier even went as far as saying that their offer is guaranteed for one year.
spectrum is the new owner of brighthouse, but brighthouse does not keep me under any contract and has been fairly good, not great, but they have not given me the run around like frontier has!!!

6 hours on phone, only to find out they are sending a 'fix-it' guy 4 days after i go out and on saturday in an 8-5pm window. wtf....
12/13 - system wan down (no internet)
troubleshooting took down the whole system. no tv now and no internet. was told tech out tomorrow, but a call back tonight if it was something they could fix
12/14 - called cs again...told never get a call back, i'm on the 'if we have time list' but definitely on 15th
14th - no one showed or called
15th called cs again. was told today - 8-5 window again...
6pm 15th, no one showed, tech support brushed me off and said it was and will always be on the 17th. again 8-5 window.
transferred to customer service again... on hold 2 hours.. i think they are closed.

calling back to tech support....the bullshit we all put up with..

the battery in the verizon box is from 2008 too.. not sure how long they are supposed to last but that can't be good.

if there is a class action against them, i am sure they have a 95% fail rate...and we would all get a $1.41 check for our troubles...

frontier gives new meaning to the word suckitude. ok that's not a real word, but i wonder if frontier is a real company. would a real company consistently lie, cheat, hang up on customers, employ workers who know nothing about their product, move addresses in order to extract larger payment, make promises with no intent to keep, initiate a service and then deny it, allow so called supervisors to be rude, uncaring and unhelpful, offer services known to be defective or inappropriate, send someone out to break your body parts. ok, that last one is a joke, but frontier is like the mafia of communications.they never send anyone out, even if you call them numerous times to complain your phone or internet is out.
i have 6 legal pages of notes dealing with a billing problem, still not solved after 3 months. i am actually not here to post my problems, as they are mirrored in some way in most of the posts here. what i am here to say is when you write your review, please send a copy too the fcc, which is the "governing" body for communications. based on the number of complaint sites for frontier, if even half of complainers reported to the fcc, the sheer volume of mail might at least piss someone off enough to investigate frontiers dealings. in many areas they are a monopoly, and didn't the government start busting monopolies in the 70's with at&t?
let the voice of the people be heard loud and clear. we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!!!

wow i see many people who are suffered or being suffered from frontier, i recently moved to new apt and asked frontier to shift the internet and for every 3weeks internet gt disconnected, customer service and technicians are helpless as they dont know what actual problem is and they keep on playing with me. i contacted facebook chat thought they take seriously and help, they are dumb candidates they dont know anything ☺️, they are simply doing time pass in chat window. no doubt, soon this company is going to close as a company cannot be run with this kind of customer service, technicians and people. management should be changed.

since frontier took over our dsl service, we have lost our internet speed (when we actually have internet) which can't support our microcell or stream video. we have mostly been without internet and wi-if for the past several weeks. the first time i called, i was told there was "an outage" and that it would be resolved in a couple hours. the second time i called when the service never ca,e back on, told me there was "a break in the line" between my area and the local frontier office. i was told the service request was being expedited and it never was. i was going to call and ask for a reduction in my bill, but other comments i have read said that frontier would not make any credits to the bill when the customer asks. 100% dissatisfied since they to over verizon's services!

i am officially at war with frontier communications. i have had it with that company--but i have no choice--charter's internet speed is half what i pay for with frontier. i am at starbucks now because i have no landline at home (for almost 2 months) and no internet service, which they say they cut off for nonpayment. they cut off my auto-pay in june without my consent or knowledge, and cut off my account in october. i paid them more than $1,800 via direct bank draft on october 26 and they still have not withdrawn it from my bank. the "account manager" they assigned to me (his name is sonny coleman and he's based in florida) has told me a different story every time we've emailed--and that's only every 3 days because he's "busy." three--five days to respond is not account management. i have notified the fcc, puc, texas attorney general's office and dave lieber at the dallas morning news. i have to take hubby to a doctor's office now, but i have to waste time (again) today messing with frontier because they can't run a business. i need to be grading papers and helping students, not sitting in a starbucks because it's the only way i have contact with the outside world. my husband has alzheimer's disease so i work from home a lot--i'll be toting him around with me from wifi spot to wifi spot until i can get back online. to add insult to injury, my cell phone died. plugged it into the charger all night and dead this morning. tried three different chargers. so i have to screw with verizon wireless today too. does anybody have any idea how helpless i feel without any way to contact anybody? please share with everybody you can find. i want to take frontier down. i want that company out of business and out of denton, texas. i want to join any and all class action suits against frontier. i can't take it any more. i really can't.

recently moved to a new house and ordered service over a month in advance even have an email confirmation stating a tech would be onsite between 1 and 4 on the 30th of november. 30th came but frontier never did. customer service rep told me we must have ordered from a vendor 'we called frontier directly, i have the entry saved in my phone' and the 'vendor' never 'put the installation through' which i found amazing. we were told that because of the holidays they were backed up and couldn't provision the service for 10 days. i work out of my home and this info really burned me up. i escalated and talked to a supervisor who was one of the dumbest people i have ever dealt with. she said she had a 'form' she could fill out and try to expedite and while she couldn't guarantee a faster turn around would be the end result they would do their best and that they would actually call us and keep us posted. not one call from them and we have resorted to calling them every day to make sure they don't screw us again.

hate, hate, hate this company. called to get bill lowered, worked for a month and then bill was $50 higher the following month, almost back to the original price we got it lowered from and that was stripping it down to bare minimum cable. called to get channels added back if it was going to be the same - bill keeps going up and they put on the statement that we agreed to another 2 years(not no, but hell no). been meaning to call them to discuss - this month we get a bill at $190 - which is $60 more than what we originally started with when i initially called to get it lowered. they are a bunch of asshats and we are dropping them today.

noblesville indiana

frontier is the worst company ever.

we live in what feels like the third world section of hamilton county, in, 46062

for twenty three years we have had only one option for phone / cable service.
verizon provided service initially but then sold to frontier a number of years ago.
here is our story in a nutshell, we have never had dependable phone / internet service in our area. we cancelled our undependable phone service years ago, faxes would not even go thru anymore, too much static to hear peoples voices.

our internet is so slow and undependable i can often deliver a message to a customer faster by hand. my out box currently has 29 messages waiting to be sent.

our existing problem with the internet started on 11/21. after spending countless hours on the phone with a very hostile unprofessional tech support , our frontier / yahoo account is still down.

last friday evening a young lady named allison who called me from the office of the president at frontier,she scheduled a technician to call me this morning at 8:00am, it's 10:04 am still no word from them.

our best speed this month .36 upload 1.56 down load not even enough to send attachments timely.

i can't seem to find anybody who can exert any kind of pressure on this company.

they act like they are above the law and answer to no one. even the phone monopolies of the past were more responsive.

we pay twice the amount that frontier currently advertises for their base package in our area which says for speed of 6mbps, how can that be right.

11/21 to 12/5 and counting still no service.

what legal recourse do we have?

wish we had a attourney general that had some balls

frontier should be drug over the rocks on the way into court to answer for fraud

my frontier/yahoo account has been down since 11/21

our internet is always so slow and undependable i can often deliver a message to a customer faster by hand. my out box currently has 29 messages waiting to be sent.

after spending countless hours on the phone with a very hostile unprofessional tech support , our frontier / yahoo account is still down. forwarding you and hanging up on you seems like their default position.

one of my rants ended up in the in box at the office of the president @ frontier a nice gal named allison called me last friday and listened to the problem. she recommended that she schedule a tier two technician to look at software issues. she set it up for monday at 8:00 am it's 10:04 am still no word from anybody. another fail from frontier.

frontier communications is terrible! bunch of crooks if you ask me! please look to other services other than frontier!
1) over charged on monthly bill every month
2) dont give credit for outages, poor internet service, tv goes out at least twice a day (rebooting)!
3) rude customer service
4) technicians don't even come out on day of appointment for service.
5) charges for so and so taxes besides the normal state tax.
6) call in every month to fix my bill and services.
7) not getting channels that were on my package from verizon.
8) every time i call in and explain my situation the outcome is always the same! (which is they can't help me or their explanation of poor service always changes with lies. one operator will tell you one thing and then the next operator will tell you something totally different!
9) my package always changes on bill and through customer service.
10) customer service reps are not knowledgable of service that frontier provides
11) customer services suck
12) tech services suck
13) frontier communications are crooks
14) always spend almost 2 hours on the phone going back and forth with supervisor(s) about my services and they always state otherwise!
15) i tell them i have my original pkg brochure in my hand to compare with the mis-information they provide. and then the excuses start!!!!
16) every time i go over with billing about my bill it's never the same information. i notify them that i'm looking at my bill as we speak and then the excuses start!! even had one rep say it was wrong, lol!
17. bottom line is don't get frontier communictions as your provider!!!

really want to know if anyone has gotten out of their contracts with frontier crooks and how?
and has anyone just refused to pay the bill period and changed their service? what action is taken if it comes to this point?
i personally tell them i refuse to pay money for a service that i wasn't getting!!
is their anyway we can get out and if by law can we sue them or take them to court? legally i signed up with verizon not frontier! i was not aware of the takeover until it happened! and they did not notify me of the change reason being because i just signed up with verizon 3 months prior to the takeover!
if anyone has a solution to these issues please leave your reply in the comments!

thank you,
disatisfied customer w/ frontier communications

in tampa, fl, frontier took over for verizon. both companies suck, but frontier makes verizon seem like a spectacular company in comparison. my bill has fluctuated from $100 over billing to around $200 over billing, and they took away all espn channels without my permission. let's get this class action lawsuit started already so we can take frontier to the cleaners, and wipe them off the face of the earth.

i had an appointment scheduled to reactivate my home phone number, which had only been turned off for about 2 months. they technician never showed up! he didn't even bother calling....oh wait, they told me he called on my home number...uh, i don't have a home number!!! then he lied and said he was at my home for 20 mins and that nobody opened the door....omg! this was a sunday and everybody was home....waiting for him! blatant lie! after 45 mins on the phone with someone from frontier, a very nice lady trying to help but just couldn't seem to wrap her head around the fact that this guy had just lied and she wanted to send someone else out at 6:00 pm sunday night....uh no!
monday i called and spoke with a supervisor to remedy this....she looked into see if possibly they could do the service remotely and was going to call me back. she called back once monday to let me know she was still working on it and she would call as soon as possible. well, it's friday and she never called back.i'm now on hold after talking with a customer service rep who spoke so fast and slurred his words and then when i asked him to repeat himself, he talked as slow as possible....how rude! when i asked for a supervisor, after just explaining everything to him, he said "may i ask why"!!! omg! seriously, i just want to speak with someone who knows wtf is going on!
i am going to see what other options are available for me...i was quite content with verizon and now frontier has just put a wrench in it! morons!

i actually don't have much of a problem with frontier's service...we have phone, internet and tv (all through fios) and everything works fairly well. we've only had a handful of small service interruptions over the past few years. i really like the tv service....lots of channels!

but their customer service is absolutely horrendous. i've had to call dozens of times for billing issues and to say calling them is an unpleasant experience is the understatement of the century. i would like someone from frontier to explain to me how it's possible to call five separate times and get five different rate quotes? how is this possible??

they "automatically renewed " our contract at a price increase of approx. $50 per month. we never agreed to this over the phone or in writing. last i checked, a "contract" is an agreement between two willing parties. for them to renew our contract at a huge price increase without our consent and then threaten to charge us an early termination fee of $250 when trying to get out of our so-called "contract" is nothing short of criminal behavior.

and on what planet is it okay to charge long time customers more than new customers? i'm a long time customer of walmart, but i'm 100% certain i don't have to pay more for products than a new walmart customer.

i hate hate hate how frontier treats its customers. i'm not even remotely interested in dealing with this company anymore, it's just not worth it.

months and months of having to call in to have credits issued to my account for services i do not have or they are charging me for and shouldn't be. can't put through a repeating credit so i get to call each month. and start all over again with explanations as to what i need them to do.

today they tell me they will not be issuing any more credits to my account - okay then - bye bye. transferred to 'retentions' who didn't even attempt to retain my business. brighthouse, now spectrum, will buy out the balance of my contract with frontier, more channels, home landline, free premium channels, faster internet, extensive public wifi for less money and no contracts so i'm free to leave at any time. i'm done with frontier. congrats frontier, you actually managed to be even worse than verizon. that takes some doing.

i live in rural nys. frontier internet service was pretty good when i first moved in 4 years ago, but has gone downhill ever since. about 6pm, when everyone is home from work, the internet rarely works....when i try to load in a web page i am invariably timed out. i just don't use it in the evening. when i call customer service i get different advice, tests....etc. nothing works and they refuse to send someone out to check the "box" down the road -- which when tweeked in the past would juice up the 6 megabite connection. i am so fed up i could scream!

so my frontier internet is a nightmare. my connection goes out constantly...and i literally mean every 5 minutes. i run my business from home and it has prevented me from getting anything done. for those who don't know, a "satisfactory" (but not fast) internet speed is 8 mbps. my connection tests between .73 to 1.45 mbps. basically, it is next to useless. i can't even stream netflix or update my computer at home, i have to go to a coffee shop or somewhere with free wifi.

frontier has attempted to fix it and says it is ok each time, but clearly this service is useless in my area of palm desert, ca. i am switching to time warner, which i heard is awful too. we just don't have good options here. at this point, anything has to be better than frontier.

frontier really sucks...we were switched from verizon back in april, and our monthly bill has gone from around $235 then to around $340 now for the same service. yesterday we learned that frontier will no longer carry nbc programming due to a contract dispute. this is the best network channel, the one that we watch most every night with the best programming. with no nbc, the service is worthless other than the internet connection... i will be cancelling and will have to toss the dice with brighthouse --doesn't sound good.

frontier communications uses dishonest sales practices!

i was a verizon fios customer in the tampa area that was acquired in the fios purchase by frontier communications. i am on a 24-month contract that is nearing the end.

today my internet went out and i called tech support to troubleshoot the issue. tech support informed me that the outage was due to my internet upgrade and contract renewal which i never asked for. the tech rep also informed me that a technician was en route to my house to perform the upgrade. after i told him i never agreed to an upgrade or contract renewal, i was then transferred to a customer service rep that tried to sell the upgrade to me after the fact that they processed an illegal order. not a "we are sorry for our error". frontier is clearly a company that promotes and encourages dishonesty in their sales function.

to say i am mad is an understatement. is this your sales practice frontier? well, not only will i be filing complaints with the state ag, fcc, bbb and anywhere else that i can notify the world about your slimy company, i am making you my mission. you have destroyed my entire morning of work and you don't even have the decency to apologize for wasting my time while trying to steal from me.

sincerely,
yet another lost customer

frontier is literally the worst isp on the face of this planet. my fellow west coasters can vouch on the awful transition that was verizon to frontier. internet cuts out whenever it feels like it, call tech support and they'll tell you "hmm nope, shows here you're up and running, problem must be on your end". ok, let's say the problem is on my end, how do i make this shit work? can you send a tech? "no, shows here there's no problem, theyll only tell you the same thing i'm telling you". save yourself the trouble, if you work from home frontier is not a reliable provider. land line hasn't worked since the nixon administration. for the price, go somewhere else. don't bother staying in on rainy days, internet is down if it's remotely rainy. i was unfortunately grandfathered into a 2 yr contract with them after they bought verizon, thankfully this is my last month before i jump off this sinking ship. i seriously hope everything bad in the world happens to this piece of shit company.

frontier is definitely the worse service provider i have dealt with. customer service especially. came home to no service, as well as a notice that my overdue payment was due by 4:30pm on the final date of the notice (12/7/2016.). yes i forgot to pay last month. so i have 7 days to get the payment made before they disconnect.

called customer service to tell them that i just received the notice stating to pay by 4:30pm on 12/7 but yet i was disconnected anyway. i was on the phone for 30 minutes, transferred to 2 different agents, and both agents sounded muffled---poor phone service, go figure--so i could barely hear them. the totally disregarded the notice i received and couldn't restore it until payment was made.

i have no problem making the payment, the problem i have is frontier disconnecting service before the final date that is stated on their notice.

will be switching to dish satellite service.

my story is probably on par with everyone elses. where do i start??......

so i made an appointment with frontier back in september for new service. had an appointment for new service scheduled for a saturday. changed my travel/ work plans so that i could be here for the install. there's a backstory to all of this - we weren't moving in for a few months so we only needed internet to take care of business on the house while in la. so i was told by the rep who was doing my order, "no problem at all. we can set you on a vacation hold so that you're not paying for phone/tv until you move in. you will only be responsible for internet and then when you move in we can turn on phone and tv. this way we can set everything up now."

the day and time of the appointment came and went with no one showed up. so i call the next day and ask what happened? i was told, "oh, your order was cancelled." that's interesting. so i ask, "why was everything cancelled without anyone calling me?" silence. she then say's "well, you order was cancelled because you need to have service for 2 months in order to do a vacation hold on your service." ok, so that was news to me. then i say, i would like to speak to a manager. the customer service agent says, (not kidding) "well the only way you can speak to my manager is if you set up service with us." what?!?!?! i said, "well i would like to determine whether or not i want to do business with you which is why i want to speak to your manager." same response - the net of it was unless i was willing to spend another 15-20 min setting up a new order (for the same order they cancelled) they weren't going to let me speak to a manager to discuss my dissatisfaction with them. crazy right? so i give up and move on.

you may ask, at this point why go forward with verizon/frontier? well, the prior tenants in my house had it installed fios and i thought it would be an easy install to stay with the same company. rather than have twc come out and drill new holes and run new wires i thought this was the more efficient route.

so i just say to myself forget it, i'll just set up an appointment when i move down full time in nov/dec.

cut to 2 weeks ago (mid november) i made another appointment for this past saturday. i'm a new customer getting phone, internet and tv. i called and referenced that i had an order set up prior, which they were able to retrieve (my old order that was cancelled- interesting because i was told i needed to set up another order to talk to manager??) and was stood up the last time with no communication. they said, "oh, we are so sorry, we will make sure everything goes smoothly for you."

famous last words....i moved around my moving schedule (moved down from sf to la) so i could be there at the time i was quoted (3-5pm pst 11/26). during my drive down from sf to la my sister in law who lives next door sends me a picture of a note left by the frontier technician. i think he was at my house around 8-9am. his note was "cant get into the communication box - it's rusted/painted over. you will have to reschedule." ok, so a couple of things are going on here. 1) why is the technician at my house prior to what i was told was my appointment window? 2) why do i have reschedule? you came before the window i was quoted (which, by the way they will later deny (aka lie) that i was quoted).

upon receipt of the note i immediately call into frontier and explain what happened. i spoke wiht someone who looked at my order and said, "yes, you're right, he did come early and i will escalate this issue. someone will be at your house by 7pm tonight." i'm sure at this point you can already guess what happened. no one showed up.

so i call once again (having now been stood up a total of 3 times) and speak to probably the worst person in customer service i've ever encountered. no wait, the person i spoke with today, mary a supervisor is actually the worst (more on that to come). the girl i spoke with sat evening was apologetic but offered me nothing in the way of getting the appointment scheduled on mon. complete and utter waste of my time calling sat evening. oh well, lesson learned.

i call first thing mon am. i get a nice guy on the phone explain that i'm not interested in talking to a rep and that i want a supervisor. he puts me in touch with mary (after being on hold for about 15 min). mary, mary....where do i start? well, i'm clearly a little short and peeved at this point. she, rather than taking a customer service 101 approach of being nice to a potential customer, goes on the offensive. she says "well our technician came at the right time. we didn't quote you an appointment window. this was an all day appointment." wrong. now you are just lying to me. then i say, well thats's interesting, because he said the box is rusted/painted over and he can't get in. well i was able to get in and the twc cable guy (who came after a quick call the night before) was able to get in.

again, more defensiveness and no apologizing. you would think, and i haven't asked for anything, that they would at least offer me something? nope, nothing. in fact, i left the conversation begging them to give me service. think about that for a second. a customer has to call a service provider and beg them to give them $140/mo. shouldn't they be fighting for my business when there are other providers? what if i called and said, "look, my payment might or might not be there this month. i'll try to get it to you on time but i'm not sure i really feel like living up to your expecations." my service would be turned off immediately.

this is hands down the worst customer service and company i've ever dealt with. that's not hyperbole. i'm serious. do not under any circumstances sign up for service with this company. you will waste your time and end up banging your head on the wall.
