CES 2018 – Cord cutting favorites from the Consumers Electronic Show

CES 2018

New cord-cutting tech revealed at CES 2018

The Consumers Electronic Show, or CES, is like candy to the sweet tooth for anyone who loves the newest technology products. Everything from the best in smartphones and VR to the latest in dishwashers—it is all at CES 2018.

With over 100,000 attendees, it is also one of the largest trade shows in the United States. We were among those to attend this year’s Consumers Electronic Show in Los Vegas to preview some of its exciting products and services.

Here are some of the biggest cord cutting stories from CES 2018.

We’re coming to Walnut Hills and Hunters Hill

Ting fiber network construction

In our Centennial progress reports, we offer as much information as we possibly can on the fiber network build process. We’ll also talk about Ting events, promotions and some of the work we’re doing in the Centennial community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.

Ting fiber network construction continues

Great news, Centennial. We’re starting construction in Phase 1B of our fiber network build, which is made up of Walnut Hills and Hunters Hill.

Thanks to everyone in these neighborhoods who pre-ordered! We’re thrilled to start bringing fiber to your homes.

What is Ting Internet?

What is Ting Internet?

Hey, we’re Ting. You may have met our team around town, seen one of our ads or heard about us coming soon to your neighborhood. Pleased to meet you. If you’re wondering what it is exactly we do, you’ve come to the right place.

Ting Internet is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that builds, lights and services fiber networks across the US.

Ting crazy fast fiber Internet is radically different from the old, slow and unreliable copper Internet connections we’re all used to. It stands to reason that Ting is radically different from the behemoth cable companies you’ve dealt with in the past.

Centennial construction begins

Since we announced the start of construction in Centennial last month, we’ve been hard at work in our first Phase 1 neighborhoods, Willow Creek 1 and 2.

Phase 1 construction has started: Willow Creek 1 and 2

Leading up to the start of construction, our team and the City of Centennial worked together to get all the necessary permits and paperwork together in order for Ting to be able to work in the City right-of-way. We began construction in Willow Creek 1 and 2 in December and have been making steady progress.

So far, our construction efforts have been focused on installing conduit in the City right-of-way. Most of this work consists of trenching and digging to install conduit in the ground.

The road to fiber: how fiber optic infrastructure gets built

fiber optic infrastructure

The most common question we get about Ting Internet is “when can I get it?” It speaks to the need for infrastructure much faster and more reliable than the old copper networks. Copper simply wasn’t designed to provide Internet access.

While we’d love to get the whole of North America wired (glassed?) up with the access it so sorely needs, it bears mentioning that fiber is a marathon, not a sprint.

The FCC plans to kill net neutrality. Here’s how to stop them

net neutrality

A brief overview of the FCC’s plan to kill net neutrality

Net neutrality seems to be on everyone’s mind right now as we steel ourselves for the FCC’s upcoming vote on December 14. It seems the top priority for these Trump-appointed FCC members is to overturn the net neutrality regulations that were hard won under the last administration. Next month’s vote to do just that is very likely to pass by a three-to-two margin.

Right now, the Internet is classified as a public utility under Title II. This allows each Internet user the ability to do what they want online, without preferential treatment given to some websites that would make them faster than others. That’s one of the biggest concerns, that without net neutrality, the Internet will become like two lanes of traffic: the high-speed lane in which the industry’s bigwigs and corporations pay for faster delivery speeds, and the throttled slow lane for everyone else, including startups and lesser-known companies that can’t afford the fast lane.
