How two local coworking spaces utilize Ting Internet to enhance their members’ experience

Coworking spaces are on the rise and generating a lot of buzz. Charlottesville is home to several coworking studios, including Studio IX and Vault Virginia. Studio IX is a coworking venture that was renovated from a former textile mill near the Downtown Mall. This innovative hub provides users an opportunity to gather together and combine shared networks and skillsets. Similarly, the former Bank of America building on the Downtown Mall has been newly renovated and transformed into Vault Virginia, a coworking space dedicated to cultivating collaboration.

When entering these spaces, you immediately notice how different it feels to a traditional office. Everything from the constant flow of creative energy to the eclectic layout and design describes a unique coworking culture. 

We sat down with James Barton, founder of both Vault Virginia and Studio IX, to discuss how these coworking spaces have the potential to help their members do more with the help of Ting’s crazy fast fiber Internet.

Ting’s presence at Vault Virginia and Studio IX 

Businesses are now relying even more on the use of the Internet and computers on a daily basis. As we continue advancing into a more technology-driven world, the importance of reliable, fast Internet speeds is becoming more critical. At Vault Virginia and Studio IX, members have the advantage of connecting with the fastest fiber Internet around. With Ting’s fast and secure speeds, users can accelerate their productivity. 

Vault Virginia and Studio IX are home to a community of professionals in and around the Charlottesville area. These individuals range from those who are self-employed, part of a small team or working remotely. Regardless of their occupational field, Ting Internet is there to help them complete their work more efficiently. Whether it’s video calls, streaming video content, or downloading and uploading large files, users can do it all seamlessly with Ting.

Working smarter with fiber Internet 

The culture of coworking encourages more interaction and collaboration within its tight community. While speaking with Barton, he highlighted his plans on leveraging his Ting Internet connection by introducing podcast recording sessions into the space as well as facilitating more and more collaborative meetings. During corporate retreats at Vault Virginia, hundreds of devices run smoothly throughout the building on a WiFi network supported by Ting fiber.

Vault Virginia has a space on the second floor where Barton plans to produce a podcast recording studio. An ideal studio has quick and reliable Internet. That’s essential when interviewing remote guests. It also allows podcasters to quickly upload large audio files to the cloud in real-time. Barton trusts Ting’s speeds for smooth recording sessions and believes Ting fiber Internet will be a key factor in supporting local podcasters at Vault Virginia.

In addition, Vault Virginia has conference rooms on every floor in order to facilitate collaboration. In these rooms, members can make video calls and collaborate with other remote coworkers online with ease and confidence knowing they have access to the highest quality Internet using Ting!

As technology continues to advance and we continue to implement it into our daily lives, having crazy fast Internet speeds with Ting ensures productivity and efficiency. We love that Vault Virginia and Studio IX are both elevating the way users work, collaborate and create. Heck, we love it so much, we moved our own Ting offices into Vault Virginia last year! Ting is excited to continue providing Studio IX and Vault Virginia users with the speeds they need to get the job done, while also being a part of a fun community.
