Frontier's Fiber to Home Project Starts
Source: City of Santa Barbara
Frontier Communications has started a construction project to bring its Frontier FiberOptic service to many parts of Santa Barbara. The majority of work is being performed on existing overhead poles/lines and in existing underground structures. City staff is involved as it relates to traffic control and the installation of cabinets in entries to certain neighborhoods.

The wait is over, Santa Barbara. FiberOptic internet is coming to your neighborhood!
Access to high-speed internet is critical to everyone. Frontier Communications is expanding the reach of its fiber network so homes and businesses can benefit from Frontier’s mission to build Gigabit America.
Frontier now offers internet service as fast as 1 gigabit per second, allowing consumers to download and upload videos and files up to 25 times faster than the broadband service offered by cable companies in California. That means more people in the same household can enjoy great speeds at the same time, while working from home, home schooling, streaming, or just surfing the web.
You’ll notice a lot of activity in your surrounding areas. Before we bring fiber to your neighborhoods, we will:
- Secure city and local permits;
- Locate other utilities to avoid impacting their facilities;
- Create a path for our network and set up connection points to bring fiber to customers; and
- Conduct technical and engineering work in our central office facilities and on the network itself.
