Frontier Teams Up with RingCentral to Transform the Small Business Communications Experience
New partnership gives small businesses the productivity solutions to work from anywhere
Norwalk, CT and Belmont, CA – March 3, 2022 – Frontier (NASDAQ: FYBR) and RingCentral (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of global cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions, today announced a partnership to launch an all-in-one productivity package to enable small businesses to run seamlessly from anywhere. The new bundle will combine business cloud communications including RingCentral Message Video Phone (MVP®) coupled with Frontier’s high-speed internet and network solutions to provide small businesses access to a reliable, secure, and simple communications platform, enabling them to run from anywhere.
The Frontier + RingCentral bundle includes an easy-to-manage business phone system, video conferencing for up to 100 participants, and a mobile app for phone, video, messaging, and SMS; combined with the customer’s choice of Frontier’s symmetrical high-speed fiber internet with capabilities up to 2 Gig. This bundle is available across Frontier’s entire fiber footprint which reaches approximately 4 million homes and businesses. The offer starts on March 3, 2022.
Businesses are moving faster than ever before and so are their network capability needs. To power the modern workplace, Frontier and RingCentral are delivering unified cloud communications to meet customers’ rapidly growing bandwidth needs. As people continue to work and run their businesses remotely, the combination of RingCentral’s leading Unified Communications as a Service (UcaaS) platform and Frontier’s lightning-fast symmetrical fiber service creates a reliable solution to deliver a seamless HD video conferencing and cloud calling experience. Frontier recently rolled out multi-gig capabilities for small businesses – up to 2 Gig – better servicing greater numbers of devices and resulting communications solutions.
“The pace of work for small businesses has never been faster — so we’re offering the connectivity to match,” said Mike Shippey, executive vice president, Business and Wholesale for Frontier. “As we continue to Build Gigabit America and accelerate our network fiber expansion, we’re thrilled to partner with RingCentral to provide small businesses with the latest and most flexible communications solutions.”
“Over the last two years, many businesses, big and small, were forced to shift to a hybrid work model quickly and chose makeshift IT solutions. In partnership with Frontier, we’ve created a strategic all-in-one business package that unlocks the maximum value of hybrid work, manages costs effectively, and powers all small business leaders’ growing network needs. With the enterprise-grade capabilities offered through our joint solution, these small businesses can manage their workforce more efficiently and better serve their customers,” said Homayoun Razavi, chief business development officer, RingCentral. “Additionally, small businesses can now secure access to blazing-fast fiber combined with next-generation communication tools that connect customers and employees wherever they are.”
