Relevant quote
The evolved look reflects a transformed typeface, a brighter color palette, and a reimagining of the arc to represent the transfer of data and the importance of connectivity. The logo also uses the name Frontier Communications, instead of just Frontier, to avoid confusion in the marketplace.

Some kind of something.

Without the forced ligatures and philharmonic-looking "f", the old logo had some interesting letterforms that, in the right typographic hands, could have made for a more intriguing evolution. Instead, we have whatever sans serif that is, which happens to be very unflattering and has one of the worst "e"s I've seen in a while. It's so out of proportion it's almost its own logo. And, yes, the swoosh had to go from the original logo but replacing it with an implied swoosh made from a set of fading circles from the tittle of the "i" is hardly the answer. The only compliment I can give it is that the animation is not bad.

Thanks to Andrew Magee for the tip.
