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 and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date on the latest.
Hey Cville! In our last construction update we talked about some of the network construction progress in Johnson Village, Belmont and Fry’s Spring. Today, we’re going to provide some more insight into those active areas of the build.
In Johnson Village, construction crews are still installing fiber underground. Construction continues and we’re happy to report that we’re making steady progress. Aerial addresses (where fiber is being strung up on poles) are lit and ready to get Ting service!
If you’re in Johnson Village and you want Ting crazy fast fiber Internet (which, let’s be honest, you totally do) just enter your address at ting.com/cville and we’ll take care of the rest.
Building in Belmont
Construction on the west side of Belmont has wrapped up and we’re installing everyone who is now on the network.
If you live in the area, be sure to check your address at ting.com/cville to confirm that your place is on the network and to get started. If you order before June 10, you can get a free installation! Head to belmont.ting.com to get started.
Belmont neighborhood sign contest
Thanks to everyone who submitted to our Belmont neighborhood sign contest! Ting has partnered with Belmont/Carlton Neighborhood Association, The Bridge PAI and The Charlottesville Mural Project to bring a neighborhood sign, designed by a resident, to Belmont.
One grand prize winning design will be chosen from among three finalists at a community celebration on June 13. Details about this event will be posted here on the Ting Cville blog as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We’ll be sending out neighborhood invitations. All BCNA members present for the celebration can cast a vote for their favorite.
Construction in Phases 1 to 4 in Fry’s Spring has wrapped up! We’ve started bringing Ting crazy fast fiber Internet to homes that pre-ordered and ordered…which, it turns out, is quite a few people, so thanks for that!
Ting at Cville Family Jams
Ting is the presenting sponsor of Cville Family Jams a concert series at Fry’s Spring Beach Club. Stop by our tent at any of the concerts to meet the team, learn more about fiber Internet and secure some sweet swag.
If you decide to order Ting Internet at Cville Family Jams, we’ll donate an additional $50 to the beneficiary of the evening. Come out and support your local organizations! Cville Family Jam events will support Big Brothers Big Sisters, International Neighbors, Jefferson Area CHIP and Virginia Discovery Museum.
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.
Ting around town
Ting was at Tom Tom 2019 and we had a booth at the block party. We handed out over 200 cups of lemonade and connected with a lot of good people. Thanks to everyone and especially to everyone that stopped by just to say “thanks for the fiber Internet.” We love passing the love along to the customer support that make it all possible.
What a game! Another congrats again to the UVA ‘Hoos who won a thrilling championship game. The victory would not have been possible without fiber Internet. Wait, what? It would? Oh. Never mind then. Wahoowa.
We attended the Fifth Annual Truck Touch on May 4 at IX Park. We had a great time showing kids how our bucket trucks work and demonstrating how we string aerial fiber up on poles. The kids seemed pretty interested too. Granted, not as interested as they were in the firetrucks with their paint jobs and their fancy sirens. We’re not bitter though.
