CES 2018 – Cord cutting favorites from the Consumers Electronic Show

CES 2018

New cord-cutting tech revealed at CES 2018

The Consumers Electronic Show, or CES, is like candy to the sweet tooth for anyone who loves the newest technology products. Everything from the best in smartphones and VR to the latest in dishwashers—it is all at CES 2018.

With over 100,000 attendees, it is also one of the largest trade shows in the United States. We were among those to attend this year’s Consumers Electronic Show in Los Vegas to preview some of its exciting products and services.

Here are some of the biggest cord cutting stories from CES 2018.

What is Ting Internet?

What is Ting Internet?

Hey, we’re Ting. You may have met our team around town, seen one of our ads or heard about us coming soon to your neighborhood. Pleased to meet you. If you’re wondering what it is exactly we do, you’ve come to the right place.

Ting Internet is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that builds, lights and services fiber networks across the US.

Ting crazy fast fiber Internet is radically different from the old, slow and unreliable copper Internet connections we’re all used to. It stands to reason that Ting is radically different from the behemoth cable companies you’ve dealt with in the past.

In our Charlottesville progress reports, we offer as much information as we possibly can on the fiber network build process. We’ll also talk about Ting 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.

Charlottesville construction update

Our crews were out working hard at the end of 2017 in Cville, and picked back up in full force at the start of this year. We’ll also give you a sneak peek at where Charlottesville construction is headed next and give you an update on some of the community events that Ting has been involved with around town.

The road to fiber: how fiber optic infrastructure gets built

The most common question we get about Ting Internet is “when can I get it?” It speaks to the need for infrastructure much faster and more reliable than the old copper networks. Copper simply wasn’t designed to provide Internet access.

While we’d love to get the whole of North America wired (glassed?) up with the access it so sorely needs, it bears mentioning that fiber is a marathon, not a sprint.

The positive impact of fiber Internet on the economy and business

Fiber Internet brings community and local business benefits that go way beyond just crazy fast, reliable Internet, though it certainly brings that.

The day-to-day impact of higher Internet speeds and more efficient communications can have huge ramifications for all levels of business, from your local coffee shop to a big box store with dozens of employees.

Did you know that youth from low-income households and communities are at a greater risk of living in poverty as adults?

These youth often have a more difficult time graduating high school and often aren’t as likely as middle class youth to attend college. This phenomenon is sometimes called the “cycle of poverty,” where, once a set of events or factors have set poverty into motion, theses circumstances are unlikely to change, even across generations. That is, unless there is some form of outside intervention.
