New ‘Connected’ Community in North Texas Selects Frontier Communications to Provide All-Fiber Based 500/500 Mbps Internet Service for Homeowners

NORTHLAKE, Texas – Pecan Square, a new 3,100 home, single-family master-planned development being constructed by Hillwood Communities in Northlake, Texas, will feature Frontier Communications’ 500/500 Megabits per second FiOS broadband service in each household.

Broadband service included in each residence will be included in homeowner association assessments. Homeowners will also have the option to upgrade to symmetrical 1 Gigabit service* for an additional cost per month. FiOS TV and phone service can also be added for an additional monthly fee. Costs will be dependent upon TV packages and other add-on services selected at the time the order is placed.

“We are honored that Hillwood Communities chose our FiOS internet service to fulfill their objective of creating a smart and connected community,” said Rachel McGallian, Frontier’s senior vice president, National Strategy and Sales. “Speed and reliability are hallmarks of FiOS broadband service. Two-way speeds over our all-fiber network make web searches faster and more efficient, regardless of the time of day, while also enabling the many connected devices and streaming services in the home to work simultaneously and smoothly. It’s a superior product.”
Hillwood Communities celebrated its topping out of amenity facilities for Pecan Square on May 21. Pre-selling of new homes will start this summer. (For more on Pecan Square and its 10 builders, please visit

“Pecan Square will feature top-of-the-line amenities for our homeowners, and that includes Frontier’s 100 percent, all-fiber network broadband service of 500 Mbps in every household,” said Andrew Pieper, vice president at Hillwood Communities. “This new Hillwood community sets a new standard for efficiency and connectivity, and offering top-notch broadband services from Frontier bolsters our brand promise.”

Frontier’s FiOS Internet service features the same speeds whether downloading or uploading, making it the most efficient broadband service in markets Frontier serves and the only true 100 percent symmetrical speed service available in those markets.
Pecan Square customers can anticipate ample household speeds to power multiple devices, streaming and other typical Internet tasks. (Please see attached Speed Chart to view examples associated with various Internet speeds.)
