Frontier Communications has officially announced its decision to move its headquarters to Dallas, bringing over 3,000 jobs to the area over the next decade. The telecommunications company, currently based in Norwalk, Connecticut, had also considered a location in Florida for its new headquarters.
The company’s move to Dallas is expected to have a significant economic impact on the region. Frontier, which generates around $5.8 billion in revenue, serves over 3 million internet customers through its broadband and fiber services.
In a press release, Frontier stated that it chose Dallas as its new headquarters due to the city’s business-friendly environment and its central location within the company’s national footprint. This strategic move will enable Frontier to easily reach its customers and efficiently manage operations across the country.
As part of its relocation, Frontier will invest in a new 95,000-square-foot office space called the “GigaHub” in Uptown Dallas. The headquarters will be situated at 1919 McKinney Avenue and will accommodate the CEO, leadership team, and hundreds of corporate employees. The office is designed to foster a high-performing culture that attracts top talent and supports the company’s ongoing transformation.
Frontier’s CEO, Nick Jeffery, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for making Dallas its new home and called the city a key fiber market. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson also welcomed the move, highlighting Dallas’ reputation as an ideal city for businesses.
With this move, Frontier joins telecom giant AT&T, which has long been headquartered in downtown Dallas. The company’s relocation is expected to further strengthen Dallas’ position as a hub for the telecommunications industry, offering new employment opportunities and economic growth for the region.
