In April 2016, Frontier bought some of Verizon’s operations, along with landline phone service, in Texas, California, and Florida, and the switchover was a mess. Frontier communications are trying to retain their customers and maintain a low churn rate in the highly competitive telecommunication industry. The churn rate is a measure of the customers lost. As of 2019 Frontier’s Churn rate was 1.99%, which was higher than the preceding years.
A higher rate of loss in the video customers compared to the previous year lead to a higher churn rate in 2019. On the other hand, the company managed to improve on the losses in terms of broadband customers. Frontier reported a 2.24% churn rate in the third quarter of 2019 marking an increase in customer loss quarter on quarter. Customer revenue is also declining sequentially. Broadband revenue showed steady growth while video services show a decline in both subscribers and advertising revenue. The ARPC (average revenue per customer) has also reflected the decline in video subscribers.
