Centennial construction: what we’ve been up to and where we’re headed next

Centennial 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.

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.

The positive impact of fiber Internet on the economy and business

Fiber Internet brings community and local business benefits that go way beyond just crazy fast, reliable Internet, though it certainly brings that.

The day-to-day impact of higher Internet speeds and more efficient communications can have huge ramifications for all levels of business, from your local coffee shop to a big box store with dozens of employees.

Network construction Phase One: starting in Willow Creek

We’re starting network construction in Willow Creek

Thanks to everyone that has pre-ordered so far and expressed interest in Ting coming to Centennial.

In the time since we first announced our intention to come to Centennial, much of our work hasn’t been visible. In the planning and logistics phase, it’s all engineering, thinking, purchasing and, well, planning.

We’re excited to announce we’re officially ready to break ground. Fiber is coming, Centennial. We’ll be building the network in phases, starting with Phase 1 Willow Creek (see map below). 

If you’re not in Willow Creek 1 or 2, don’t worry. Phase 1 is just the start of our build. Once construction begins, we’ll continue to build neighborhood by neighborhood, and will announce our next phases as soon as we can.
