What is a good upload speed? Why upload makes all the difference

What is a good upload speed? This post will talk about the speed most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) don’t advertise. We’re going to cover why upload speed matters and what a bad upload speed can impact in your day-to-day Internet experience.

Ting Internet offers symmetrical gigabit Internet. That means our advertised download speeds are equal to our upload speeds. We believe the answer to the question, what is a good upload speed? is: a symmetrical one.

Can you get gigabit speeds from copper cable? Or, Why DOCSIS 3.1 is BULLSHIS 2.0

DOCSIS 3.1 or BULLSHIS 2.0?

You may have heard of Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) 3.1 as a fiber-rivaling technology that will bring gigabit speeds to homes already equipped with copper cable.

You may also have heard Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in your area advertising “gigabit speed” without having built fiber infrastructure.

For what it’s worth, DOCSIS 3.1 is an impressive hack that could satisfy a lot of people. Copper networks are more prevalent than fiber networks, there’s no denying that.

The real trouble comes when DOCSIS 3.1 is treated as a mitigation strategy and as a shortcut to gigabit, rather than investing in the upgrading of telecommunications networks to full fiber to the home (FTTH) Internet. AKA, the kind of work Ting does.

Our Internet needs have changed and old copper networks are struggling and breaking under the load. That’s why copper is the past and fiber is the future.

Ting Internet in Centennial: a 2018 year in review

Centennial Year in Review - Ting team

Hey Centennial, this post will let you know what Ting Internet has been up to in your town over the last year. We started construction in late 2017 and had a full year of building the fiber network in 2018. We attended and hosted a bunch of events and forged new community partnerships.

Thanks to everyone in Willow Creek 1 and 2, Walnut Hills and Hunters Hill and Willow Creek 3 and Willow West who came out to our phase parties. We had a fantastic time meeting you all and chatting about crazy fast fiber Internet coming to your neighborhood.

The network has expanded a fair bit over the last year, and we’ve worked or are working in a few different neighborhoods, including Willow Creek 1, Willow Creek 2, Walnut Hills, Hunters Hill, Willow West, Willow Creek 3 and Foxridge.
