Salka Holding Frontier Accountable: Encourages Residents to File Complaint

April 30, 2019

Assemblyman John Salka (R,C,Ref-Brookfield) is currently rallying support to increase broadband coverage through the towns of Lebanon, Brookfield and Georgetown. These three towns have not received the $25 million grant that was allocated to them and Frontier Communications has not provided the services it was contracted for. The three towns, however, do not have a franchise agreement with Frontier and residents should seek other broadband options. Salka encourages anyone with concerns about the broadband issue to file a complaint through the Department of Public Services website.

“I am greatly concerned with the broadband situation in our area and Frontier is doing almost nothing about it,” Salka said. “Lebanon was left without 911 coverage for almost a week, a week! None of these towns have contracts with Frontier and I encourage all residents to seek coverage elsewhere until Frontier lives up to its obligations to us. Basic coverage is an essential in the modern world and without it we’d be left behind; it looks like they aren’t the company to provide it to us.”
