The telecom giant, which is currently based in Norwalk, Connecticut, was considering Dallas as a new headquarters option, as well as a location in Florida.
The move will bring more than 3,000 jobs to the Dallas area over the next 10 years, according to a press release from Frontier. An exact date on when the company's Dallas headquarters will open was not given.
Frontier generates about $5.8 billion in revenue and has more than 3 million internet customers between broadband and fiber.
"Frontier chose Dallas because it is a business-friendly city that is conveniently located in the middle of the company’s national footprint, which makes it easy to reach its customers and more efficiently manage its operations across the country," the company said in the release.
Frontier as part of the move will invest in a new 95,000-square-foot office space called the "GigaHub" in Uptown Dallas, according to the release. The Frontier headquarters will be located at 1919 McKinney Avenue.
The office will be home to Frontier's CEO and leadership team, along with hundreds of corporate employees, the release said. The space "was designed to create a high-performing culture for top talent to lead its transformation."
“It’s official – Dallas is now home base for Building Gigabit America,” Frontier CEO Nick Jeffery said in the release. “Moving our headquarters to Dallas makes good business sense given the city is already home to hundreds of our corporate employees and sits in the middle of one of our most important fiber markets. With a fast-growing economy and large, diverse pool of talent, Dallas is quickly becoming one of the nation’s top business cities. We’re proud to be part of it.”
Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson called the Frontier move " the latest in a long list of dynamic corporations" who have relocated to Dallas.
“We welcome Frontier to Dallas and thank them for confirming what we all know is true: Dallas is the best city in America for business," Johnson said.
Frontier in Dallas joins telecom giant AT&T, which has long been headquartered in downtown.
