Thoughts on fiber to the home vs wireless links

Ask

Whether a member of the Ting team or the mayor of a Ting town, we put your questions in front of smart people.

Fiber to the home or wireless links?

You may have heard of a certain giant in the tech space pivoting away from physical fiber to a solution involving fiber-caliber Internet beamed directly into customer’s homes. If that sounds too good to be true, it may just be.


Adam Eisner, VP of Internet, explains that while Ting is keeping a close eye on wireless link technology, we still believe fixed fiber (the kind we put in the ground) will ultimately provide customers with the most consistent, high-speed experience.

Or to put it another way, think about how difficult it is to get Wi-Fi in a basement. Now add a major city into the equation.
