Taking parental control in the digital age

Parenting has never been easy but in the digital age, it can be harder than ever. For instance, without parental control over online content, it is surprisingly easy for children to see to something you’ll wish they hadn’t.

The good news is tech companies are catching on and are quickly rolling out new options to give parents better control over what their kids have access to watch.

Let’s take a look at what Google and Amazon are doing to protect your kids.

Artists at McGuffey Art Center get free Ting gigabit Internet

Ting Works

Showcasing our community initiatives and involvement across our Ting Towns.

McGuffey Art Center

McGuffey Art Center artists get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting

Art is made to push boundaries. That’s nothing new, but when artists get their hands on the latest tools, tech and Internet access, they can continue their important work and even grow into boundary-pushing small businesses.

McGuffey Art Center enables that exact kind of work. One of the oldest artist-run associations in the country, McGuffey makes its home in the old McGuffey Elementary School building located at the corner of West Market Street and 2nd Street North West, just off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA. Here, 40 studios, five galleries and a gift shop are open to the public six days a week, free of charge.

Best Business of the Year nominees

The nominees for the 2018 Charlottesville Business Innovation Council (CBIC) Awards are in and Ting is nominated for Best Business of the Year. That’s worthy of celebration and we wanted to thank the Council and our team for the recognition.

What we’re more excited about is the number of Ting Internet users who are also nominated across the various categories.

That’s what we’re here for and we’re thrilled to see many Ting Internet customers joining us on the list of nominees.

We offer Internet service. Our endgame is to be a platform from which people can innovate, build their businesses and the local economy. We love to see people succeed at whatever they set out to do. Fiber is a game-changer. It means doing more with less time and being a contributor to the Internet as much as a consumer of the Internet.
