“ This company's ok in a pinch .one thing I don't think people realize is your no getting sufficient power to power your electrical appliances at times and that is reducing the life of them and thus costing you more money. ”
“ I thought Ihad signed up but service has not yet started. I filled out the information on November 15th with Frontier with the 6-month at 6.99. ”
“ Frontier had the best rates so, of course, I went with them. My first bill was $29. I was over the moon! Next bill...$74. How is that possible when we didn't use any more energy than the month before?? Since they have to go thru Oncor to get the energy, Oncor charges $26 JUST for the ability to use their services. That and having to use the air conditioner more. I wasn't prepared for that (since that charge was NOT explained in the fine print!). The website wouldn't let me update my new address, I had to leave a message with customer service (via email) to ask them to do it for me. It also sends email estimates of what your COULD be and you cannot how much your next bill is until it is really close to when the bill is actually due. I would've rather paid to have Oncor directly had I known it would charge me that much per month (especially since Frontier said on their page, they had "no hidden fees," but that fee was never spoken about. I just really hope there are no more surprises. ”
“ They hook you in with a decent rate, and boy, are you in for an unpleasant surprise when you get your bill. I was with them for 4 months, and got outrageous bills for a small apartment, that sits empty for 2 to3 weeks out of the month. They have a penalty for getting out of the contract but it is worth paying to avoid being swindle with a high bill every month. ”
“ I chose Frontier Utilities when we finally moved into a house with non-regulated electric provider and until today I was overall very happy. I got a bill that was near double my normal bill even though the usage was barely more. I was so confused. After a very long wait on customer service, I was told that my contract ran out and I received paperwork in May. Well first, I travel for work and I just started a new job so I have been gone a ton. Second, I get emails from them Frontier every week and I never received any reminders, calls or anything. At first, the customer service rep acted like he could help and then he came back and said he was still researching a rate for me but he wanted to let me know there was nothing he could do about this bill. I spoke to him for awhile and asked for a supervisor and he put me on hold for a long time. Then he came back and told me a supervisor would call me back. After quite some time, I finally called back again, waited on hold again and was told the supervisors were gone for the day and there was nothing that could be done any way. So I was completely jerked around. I am researching and calling other providers now. So disappointed because up unitl now, I had been so happy. ”
“ Very affordable rates and always a low bill as long as you stay under contract. My lights are cut off atleast every 3 months. When I call and let them know my bill isnt due yet they always tell me they sent another one out before. So apparently I am supposed to pay 3 bills in a month. I always pay on time with everything and never have a problem. They can never seem to have an answer for me. Its not the post office, I have gone to them. I check my mail daily and they are not sending this mystery bill. They are always rude and unapologetic on the phone. Id rather pay more a month and have a company that knows what they are doing and treats their customers with atleast an ounce of respect. ”
“ Id go another route if I were you. If you in a jam and need some help, they arent very helpful at all. I needed a two day extension. Had some issues over the holiday and was flat broke. I called to get a two day extension, they told me to pay half the bill. I scraped up half the money and paid it. I called to make sure I didnt get cut off and they told me it had to be oid the day before so I was too late and they would cut me off anyway... smh. Not a good way to serve your customers at all. I got cut off for $64. ”
“ I've been paying a utility bill for over 30 years. In all this time I have NEVER received an email, text AND phone call 1 day after it was due threatening disconnection for non payment. They do offer days to get it paid before they disconnect service but to even do that 1 day after it's due?? Very disappointed in this company and will not be renewing my service. In fact, I'll probably be cancelling and going back to my previous provider and pay a higher rate just I won't be HASSLED by these people every day. It will be paid and only 1 week late yet I'm going to be called and hassled every day now until that time. THIS IS RIDICULOUS AND IN NO WAY PROFESSIONAL FOR ELECTRIC SERVICE ”
“ I have been with Frontier for about 3 months I live alone and never have on my air conditioner, because I try to keep my bills low because I am on a fixed income. I only have on 1 tv and a fan and 1 lamp until I go to bed. And my bill is over $100 I can't understand that. Then when I called I was told the people that lived there before me usage was around the same as mine. How can you compare it I am 1 person(myself) now compared to them 4 adults and 3 kids. ”
“ I want to know why my past due bill has went up 3 times once for everyday I'm late? Tried emailing no reply If it goes up again tomorrow I'm cancelling I did like this company now I'm alittle alert ”
“ Low teaser rate of 4c/kWh, then a huge rate of 13c/kWh for regular service + $10/mo "customer charge" - if you sign up under a promotion with this company, cancel and switch a month early to make sure you're not suckered in to their extremely high prices. ”
“ Signed up for Frontier Utilities via Power to Choose Website. After Signup I received an email confirming the change of service. When I received my first bill I was charged an Electronic Auto Pay Opt-out Fee $5.00. The agreement does indicate that Auto Pay is required which is fine but I was not given an opportunity to sign up for Auto-Pay prior to receiving the first months bill. When I called Customer Service to sign up for Auto Pay and request a Refund of the fee the Rep would not refund the fee, was not friendly and didn't seem to care. The rep submitted a request for someone to call back within 24-48 hours to discuss the fee with a manager. Great way to start off new service. ”
Forgot to pay bill so I got a disconnect notice. Sent check by express mail , it cleared my bank and then they cut off power a week after my check cleared my bank. Called them and had to pay again plus disconnect and connect charge. They asked me to send proof of my payment which I faxed to them. They never acknowledged receipt of fax until I called , didnt reverse disconnect and connect charge until I asked and never apologized for their mistake. I was out fax charges , copy charges , time and food in fridge.
DO NOT USE FRONTIER ”
Just started with Frontier. Had paid our previous bills. Got a bill due Dec. 26 - day after Christmas. Slipped through the proverbial cracks. Got a call from Frontier on Jan. 9 saying we need to pay or they'd disconnect. Fair. We paid that night.
Shockingly, they still disconnected us the next day. When I called, Francisco, a manager, confirmed that they had indeed received our money the night before. He had no good explanation.
To be fair, he did say they would waive the disconnect and reconnect fees as well as the late fees.
Just customer beware: Frontier is a very aggressive Company. Will shut you down if you're two weeks late. ”
“ I was shocked, Im a senior and on a budget, living in a small condo and respecting electricity, keep looking ”
“ My light got shut off , granted it was my mistake, but when I called after making payment the lady told me she would put me in for a connection it in the meantime she would look to get me a better rate. I have a baby that has severe allergies and is hooked up to a breathing machine overnight. When I told the supervisor, that there had to be some kind of emergency procedure they could follow she insisted that it was center point who would not be available to turn on my power until the next day but since I was going to be connected until morning I might as well get a good rate. Forget that my baby wont be able to breathe. I WILL NOT WAKE UP TO A DEAD BABY BECAUSE OF THE INCOMPETENT UNEMPATHETIC "SUPERVISOR" I will be staying in a hotel tonight looking for a better light company.. even if that means paying a higher rate. ”
“ Ive been a customer for over 5 years.. Not really any problems until recently. You cannot understand ANY of the employees anymore. They are all foreign and communication is now horrible, even with SUPERVISORS! I stopped getting my messages and ive repeatedly complained to no conclusion. I can't get anyone to explain this. They have disconnected my service AFTER I've made payments and still wanted me to pay the reconnect...after sitting on the phone for an hour! They USED to be good. ”
“ Just before contract expires make sure to renew with them or another company as Frontier will price gouge you with an astonishing rate per kilowatt that youve never seen before. Once they know you have switched beware, no loyalty! ”
I renewed my contract online this my account # 0541859 for the same plane I have before easy 12 I just have to pay$75 if I dont use over 1000 kw and month after I find out my plan was changed to different plan because The bill Change is not the same what I was paying the last contract I call all they said I did this change I said ok can I go back to my oldest plan they said no I talk to supervisor same thing they just dont care I dont use over 1000 kw Monthly I dont pay over $75 now my usage for this November was 694 kw and the charge was $109 this is scam am going to cancel my service I dont recommend this company safe your time they not even 24/7 service we you never charge me for the past year for center point charges and taxes for this new contract am having this is how you lie to people I got to pics show the different for this year and last year also I have the charges for last August 28/2018 right before my contact finish and ready to renew which I did online but look at the different
“ With Frontier many years. Most recent bill increased 6x from prior month. Discovered that the rate increased to $0.25 per kW-hr. Last bill was twice as large as the highest ever seen at this house in 17 years. I could not switch fast enough. ”
