In our Charlottesville progress reports, we talk about the Ting fiber build, 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.
It’s been a little while since we had some substantial construction news to report on in Cville. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re currently working to bring more fiber to Belmont, Johnson Village and Fry’s Spring.
Building out capacity for Belmont
Many Belmont residents already have access to crazy fast fiber Internet, and have been enjoying gigabit speeds for years. We started working on the network in Belmont and will be adding more customers to our network soon.
If you’ve pre-ordered, look out for a call from our team when we’re ready to light up your address.
If you live in the area and want Ting, be sure to check your address at ting.com/cville to make sure you’re on the network.
Johnson Village: working underground
We began construction in Johnson Village in mid-February. Like Belmont, Johnson Village had partial Ting service, and after we complete our upgrade, we’ll be able to bring crazy fast fiber to more addresses.
If you live in Johnson Village and see our Ting trucks, give us a wave! We’re hard at work installing conduit underground.
Johnson Village residents can pre-order and get a free installation on Ting gigabit Internet. The deadline to pre-order is March 31, 2019.
Just enter your address at ting.com/cville.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our St. Patrick’s Day event in Johnson Village! The Ting team shared fresh hot donuts and coffee from Carpe Donut on Sunday, March 17 with the neighborhood. With families from Johnson Village, we had a great start to St. Patrick’s Day answering questions and meeting some of our new customers.
Fry’s Spring Phase 3 and 4
We’ll be able to install fiber at homes in Fry’s Spring phase 3 and 4 early this spring. If you want the fastest Internet available today, just enter your address at ting.com/cville to see if you’re on the network.
If you live in Phase 1 and 2 – you can get Ting today! Enter your address at ting.com/cville to order Ting and our team will call to book your installation.
Didn’t see your neighborhood?
If your neighborhood isn’t one of our announced areas, we don’t have an ETA for fiber coming to you just yet. We publish construction updates every two months. Keep an eye on these construction updates for more information coming soon.
