Ting Internet FAQ: Ting Internet’s most frequently asked questions

Ting Internet FAQ

Ting Internet FAQ

Welcome to Ting. We know fiber’s still a new and emerging tech and with it can come a lot of questions like, when do I get it and what does construction look like?

We’ve rounded up some of the questions we hear the most. Hopefully, you’ll see a few on the list that you want to be answered. Whether you’ve just heard about Ting, have booked your installation or are hotly anticipating Ting TV, this post will point you in the right direction.

If it doesn’t, or if you’re looking for more detailed info, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at 1-844-846-4994 or submit a request.

What’s up with Ting construction in Charlottesville: FAQ and updates on the status of the network

fiber to Cville

In our Charlottesville 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 Charlottesville community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.

In our last construction update, we talked about our efforts to bring more fiber to Cville, expanding the network to brand new neighborhoods like Fontana and Redfields and upgrading areas that already have Ting, like Fry’s Spring.

We’re often asked when Ting is going to be available in a given area, why it’s not available in that area today and how long it will take for us to get to that area.

In our last update, we talked about the fact that we hit a network capacity ceiling in some areas of Cville. The existing fiber wouldn’t offer the capacity required to offer everyone in a given neighborhood reliable, true symmetrical gigabit Internet. That’s why, as mentioned, more of our efforts in Cville have been in adding capacity to the existing network than in expanding that network to new areas.

In this update, we’ll do our best to explain the state of the network in Cville and the work we’re doing to make continued expansion predictable and the network scalable.

Light House Studio

When you give a child a camera, you can shine a light on a whole community. That kind of sums up the thinking behind Light House Studio, a non-profit located in Charlottesville, VA. Founded in 1999 by a group of local filmmakers, artists and educators, Light House has helped youth create thousands of documentaries, dramas and animated films.

The organization’s main focus is providing mentored workshops in digital filmmaking and exhibition opportunities for their young filmmakers. By enabling youth to learn, by hand, Light House students are challenged to be active participants in the media and storytellers in their own right.

You might have noticed we love all things multimedia here at Ting, and video happens to be a passion of ours too. We provide a Ting gigabit Internet connection at the Light House Studio and the Vinegar Hill Theatre, so today’s young documentarians, filmmakers and animators can work and access valuable digital resources at the speed of light.

We had the chance to chat with Executive Director Deanna Gould, Program Director Joe Vena and Senior Teaching Artist Aaron McGinnis at Light House Studio, and learn about the amazing work this team does in the community.

New ways to take parental control of what your kids watch online

Taking parental control in the digital age

Parenting has never been easy but in the digital age, it can be harder than ever. For instance, without parental control over online content, it is surprisingly easy for children to see to something you’ll wish they hadn’t.

The good news is tech companies are catching on and are quickly rolling out new options to give parents better control over what their kids have access to watch.

Let’s take a look at what Google and Amazon are doing to protect your kids.

Art is made to push boundaries. That’s nothing new, but when artists get their hands on the latest tools, tech and Internet access, they can continue their important work and even grow into boundary-pushing small businesses.

McGuffey Art Center enables that exact kind of work. One of the oldest artist-run associations in the country, McGuffey makes its home in the old McGuffey Elementary School building located at the corner of West Market Street and 2nd Street North West, just off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA. Here, 40 studios, five galleries and a gift shop are open to the public six days a week, free of charge.

Best Business of the Year nominees

The nominees for the 2018 Charlottesville Business Innovation Council (CBIC) Awards are in and Ting is nominated for Best Business of the Year. That’s worthy of celebration and we wanted to thank the Council and our team for the recognition.

What we’re more excited about is the number of Ting Internet users who are also nominated across the various categories.

That’s what we’re here for and we’re thrilled to see many Ting Internet customers joining us on the list of nominees.

We offer Internet service. Our endgame is to be a platform from which people can innovate, build their businesses and the local economy. We love to see people succeed at whatever they set out to do. Fiber is a game-changer. It means doing more with less time and being a contributor to the Internet as much as a consumer of the Internet.
