Here’s a construction update for Charlottesville
Hey Cville, this post will catch you up on the construction and fiber infrastructure work Ting has been up to over the last few months in your town.
We’ve been hard at work this year reviewing the network and designing new neighborhoods to build out capacity for Charlottesville. We worked on underground construction in Redfields and got several apartment buildings connected to the network as well.
To date, one-third of Redfields has fiber running through it. We ran into some permitting issues that forced us to temporarily pause our efforts, but we’re back at it, working to deliver fiber to the entire neighborhood. We anticipate lighting up customers at the beginning of the new year.
If you’re in Redfields and want the best price on Ting fiber, pre-order before December 15, 2017. You’ll get $200 off your start up costs on Ting gigabit and $50 off your start up costs on Ting 5/5.
We connected several buildings over the last few months. If you see your rental management company or address below, be sure to check in with your property manager and see if your building is Ting-ready.
- 16 University Properties LLC buildings
- 1745 Allied St. at McIntire Plaza
- Four Woodard Properties buildings
- Three buildings under MSC property management, Rugby Apartments, the Pointe and Nob Hill.*
* If you live in these buildings, you have the option to upgrade to Ting gigabit for upload and download speeds up to 1000Mbps.
What’s next: Fontana
We are aiming to begin construction in Fontana in December 2017. We anticipate lighting up customers in February of 2018.
If you’re in Fontana and want Ting, pre-order by January 31, 2018. You’ll get $200 off your start up costs on Ting gigabit and $50 off your start up costs on Ting 5/5.
Don’t miss out: pre-order Ting
If you want Ting, make sure you pre-order today. A pre-order costs $9 and comes with perks.

Community events and updates
We’ve had a busy few months in Charlottesville. We hosted a fun customer appreciation event at The Paramount Theater where we screened the Little Mermaid. Plus, there was a surprise visit from Ariel herself!
We also started an exciting partnership with Charlottesville’s Women in Tech/Tech girls (CWIT).
Ting Internet has provided $10,000 in annual funding to support CWIT’s mission to address the underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers in the Charlottesville area.
We were proud sponsors of the Buzz by Belmont 5K and CBIC Tech Tour for students.
Stay tuned, there’s still more to come. Ting will be sponsoring Charlottesville’s Annual Grand Illumination this December 1 on the Downtown Mall.
