How much does Frontier cost?

Frontier internet plans start at around $50 per month and reach an extravagant $165. At the low end, you could get 500 Mbps of fiber internet for $50. But if you can get only Frontier DSL, this price tag could net you single-digit Mbps. It all depends on where you live.

At the high end, $165 will give you screaming fast 5 gigs of fiber internet. If you crunch the numbers, that feels like a ton of value. That’s just $0.03 per Mbps. However, that assumes you can actually use all 5 gigs. And due to a host of reasons, most of those Mbps will go to waste. Instead, we recommend Frontier’s 1 Gbps plan at around $80 for all the speed you’re likely to need—and then some. Most households do really well on 250 Mbps though, so even 1 gig might be overkill.

How Frontier stacks up on value

Frontier’s DSL plans are about the same cost as other DSL providers like CenturyLink. But if you’re considering DSL, you’re likely in a rural area. You may find faster, cheaper internet from a fixed wireless provider like T-Mobile or Verizon 5G.

Frontier’s fiber plans are a little more expensive than other providers like Google Fiber and AT&T, but they’re cheaper than Verizon Fios.

What current Frontier customers are saying about price

We gathered and analyzed reviews from more than 40 current Frontier customers. Most people think the service is good enough, but they’d like to see lower prices, higher speeds, or both. A few customers are unhappy with how often Frontier—like many other providers—changes its pricing, which leaves customers having to constantly shop around instead of sticking with a provider they know they like.

Cancelation costs for Frontier

Canceling your Frontier service is about as easy as it gets. There are no contracts or service agreements, and thus no early termination fees to worry about. In some cases, there may be a $20 equipment restock fee for fiber equipment and a $50 restock fee on DSL equipment.

You'll have to talk to a live human to cancel, but you can either wait on hold or schedule a call. The rep is likely to try to talk you into staying, but once you confirm cancelation, they will give you information about how to return your rented gear.

Cancelation fee
Free, but a $20–$50 equipment restocking fee may apply
