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.

Our full guide to Internet safety for kids

Internet safety for kids

The Internet has transformed the way we communicate, travel, work and play. It’s even changed the way we parent. It presents new challenges, but also excellent opportunities for learning and growth.

If you have kids, regardless of their ages, they probably have access to the Internet at some point in their day. Whether it’s your middle schooler playing Minecraft, or your teenager chatting on social media, Internet use requires a degree of responsibility. You can’t shield kids from everything and while it’s not realistic to monitor every second of their day, keeping an open dialogue around parental controls and Internet safety certainly can help.

At Ting Internet, we like to think of parental controls as training wheels for learning to use the Internet respectfully and responsibly. Browse our guide of parental controls for platforms like YouTube and Netflix below. These practical steps, paired with an open conversation around Internet safety, can help you raise kids who have a mature awareness of the Internet.

Cable companies are increasing prices again

Still have cable TV? Thinking about cutting the cord? Right now may be a great time to cancel your cable service as their prices are once again going up.

cable companiesBack in October 2018, it was reported that if you still have Spectrum’s cable TV service, you should get ready to pay more. Depending on what market you are in and what package you have, you will see an increase in your broadcast TV price from $8.85 to $9.95 and your receiver cost will grow from $6.99 to $7.50. Digital adapters will also rise from $4.99 to $5.99 each and, if you have the Latino View add-on, it will be going up from $7.99 to $8.99 a month.

You may also see a $5 price hike on your Internet service. It will be interesting to see if they continue to charge this price as $50 5G Internet continues to roll out in the United States.

The OTARD law: can Homeowners Associations ban antennas?

Your protections under the OTARD law

FCC OTARD Rule2018 has been a great year for over-the-air TV and, with the new 3.0 OTA standard on the horizon, your antenna is about to get better with free 4K over-the-air. Yet, we often hear that a homeowners’ association (HOA), or a similar group, attempts to block someone from installing an antenna on their condo or house. However, the OTARD (Over-the-Air Reception Devices) law is clear on this; you have every legal right to install an antenna, even on a condo, if you own it or have an exclusive use area of your rental property.

You may be interested to learn that the FCC’s OTARD law further prohibits most restrictions that an HOA might try to enforce, such as preventing installation, maintenance or use of an antenna, or unreasonably increasing the cost to do so.

The rule also applies to rental properties where the renter has an exclusive use area, like a balcony or patio. This includes condominium owners, co-op owners and tenants, townhomes, manufactured homes and single-family homes as well. The rule does not apply to common areas such as the roof or exterior walls of multi-dwelling units.
