Frontier Communications has joined Comcast in selling its wares on an Amazon product page devoted to landline telecom services.
On the page, Frontier 12 Mbps, 24 Mbps, 75 Mbps and 150 Mbps broadband plans are now offered alongside comparable Comcast Xfinity services.
A Frontier rep confirmed to the tech blog that Amazon’s prices match its own numbers, and the packages sold in the storefront are available in the operator’s entire 29-state footprint. Frontier said its services became available on Amazon for new customers only on Nov. 15.
For its part, Comcast began selling its services in the erstwhile “Cable Store” back in March.
"Amazon is not only the biggest online retailer and a place where millions of our customers shop every day, but it's also a brand that's unrivaled when it comes to customer service," said Charlie Herrin, executive VP of customer experience for Comcast Cable. "Amazon's new marketplace provides an immersive online destination to showcase our terrific suite of products including Xfinity X1."
