How Ron Upshaw Kicked Cable to the Curb

Share this article

Local radio personality Ron Upshaw, of “The Ron and Don Show” on Seattle Washington’s KIRO 97.3 FM, was recently in the market for a new communications provider. Ron was dissatisfied with his existing cable and Internet provider — and he was eagerly seeking an alternative provider who could satisfy his entertainment needs.

As listeners of “The Ron and Don Show” will know, when Ron prepared to move to a new house, he decided that “enough was enough” when it came to his existing cable/Internet provider. After paying more than he should for his monthly services, Ron was ready to “cut the cord” on his cable subscription.

Ron’s next move was to install symmetrical high-speed Internet from Frontier at his new house. In lieu of a traditional cable package, Ron’s Internet was the perfect companion to several of the most popular streaming services, including Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Hulu and Sling TV.

Working in the media industry, Ron is constantly uploading, downloading or streaming videos. With symmetrical speeds of 100/100 Mbps, Ron is able to conveniently download and stream his videos with no lag or downtime. What used to take several minutes to upload, he now can access almost instantly. And, to his delight, his new service is about 20 times faster.

While Ron loved streaming movies and shows using his super-fast symmetrical speed Internet from Frontier, Ron — a sports fanatic — realized he had to have access his sports networks to watch live games and events. Luckily, he was able to bundle his symmetrical-speed broadband package with Frontier’s 240+ channel TV package, a package that is still saving him a good amount of money compared to his former provider.
