Hello,

We are moving to Tigard, Oregon and I would be working remotely (from home) as a Software Engineer. As such internet would be my life line and Internet service is the only thing I care about. I am considering Frontier FIOS and am seeking experience from fellow residents of Tigard about Frontier vs Comcast (only 2 choices I have).

Questions:

a. Does Frontier internet work consistently and at decent speeds? I am considering 30/30 and they have 24.99$ per month special going on right now.

b. Would you recommend Comcast over Frontier for Internet only? And why?

Thanks in advance for your feedback in this regard. It would be very helpful for me and I appreciate it.

Ravi

FWIW, I live in Beaverton and took the Frontier 30/30 , 24.99$ offer 3 months back.
Its been terrible to say the least and connections drop very very frequently.. Infact, I seldom recall having it consecutively on for even 10 minutes at a time specially during the evenings ..
Called them couple of times and they seem to do something which does not improve the speed or connection availability.
Thinking of asking them to come and change the router.
