Ting Internet has been proudly sponsoring Charlottesville’s Tom Tom Founders Festival since we first arrived in town. This year, our CEO Elliot Noss, was invited to speak on a panel discussing what fiber Internet can do for a city. Joining him is Mayor Andy Berke of Chattanooga, the city to watch for how the best Internet access improves cities; Sheila Dugan of GovEx at Johns Hopkins University and Aimee Meacham of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The panel discussion was moderated by Deb Socia of Next Century Cities.
It’s a lively discussion that covers everything from public/private partnerships to over-the-air Internet.
Apologies for the audio quality. This panel discussion took place in a room where a loud air conditioner was competing for everyone’s attention. We eliminated the noise as much as we could.
This was not our first time speaking with Deb Socia. Check out our interview with her from two years ago at the fiber lighting ceremony in Westminster, MD.

Neighborhood construction news
We’ve been working hard constructing the fiber network throughout Charlottesville all winter long and we’re thankful for some nicer weather to work in now that spring has arrived. Here’s an update on the progress we’re making.
Construction of our network in Redfields is ongoing, and installation to homes has just begun. If you live in the Redfields neighborhood, now is the time to pre-order to receive a $200 discount on the cost of installation and we’ll let you know as soon as you’re serviceable.
You may also find our construction and installation crews around C’ville in neighborhoods like Fontana, Eagles Landing, and Johnson Village. We’re working on bringing service to several apartment buildings owned by University Properties as well. If you see one of our Ting trucks when you’re out and about town, snap a photo then post it to Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #TingTruck for a chance to win some Ting swag!

Then check your address to find out if you can get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting where you live. If not, pre-order and we’ll let you know as soon you can set up an installation appointment!
