North Carolina AG Reaches a $20 Million Settlement With Frontier

The North Carolina Attorney General announced on Tuesday a $20 million settlement with Frontier over allegations the company lied to customers about their internet speeds.

The state had sued the company along with five other states and the Federal Trade Commission in 2021 after receiving complaints that customers were receiving lower speeds than they were led to believe they would get when signing up with Frontier.

A federal court dismissed North Carolina’s case on jurisdictional grounds, but the state continued investigating the company. Frontier also settled the FTC suit in 2022, agreeing to pay more than $8 million in penalties and spend $60 million on new infrastructure in California.
