Happy New Year, Westminster! We are excited to kick off the year because we have a lot to look forward to in 2020.
In the spirit of new year goal setting and planning, we thought we would take a quick look back at what we were able to accomplish in 2019.
We are happy to announce that the Westminster Fiber Network construction is complete and the network is live across the entire City of Westminster!
In 2019, our Field Operations team had the opportunity to install enterprise-level customers. Our local installers got to work alongside our enterprise sales team to learn the process of installing fiber to these bigger businesses. There was a lot to learn along the way and we found success. We’re proud to have added McDaniel College, The Best Western and several manufacturing companies in the Airport Business Park to our growing Ting family.
One of the team’s biggest challenges for 2019 was doing many more site survey visits to find the best install approach for vastly different buildings (from malls to apartment units). There were a number of variables that we had to take into account that we had not run into before and this made it all the more challenging – and fun!
The team was excited to participate in a build day for a second year with Habitat for Humanity. Our entire team took a Saturday to work together on turning a house into a home for a Habitat family. It was a nice change of pace that reminded us what we love so much about Westminster: our strong sense of community. We also proudly sponsored the Carroll Biz Challenge for the fourth year in a row. Our Marketing Director, Trish McLean, served as a judge again and Nathan Almodovar, one of our Installation Technicians, served on the advisory board. Nathan had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of individuals with different points of view and come to a consensus in selecting five finalists from about 47 applicants. It was an amazing learning experience and a fantastic way to meet future moguls of Carroll County.
These events are a great way for the Ting Team to meet the residents of Westminster and feel like a part of the community. We can’t wait for more opportunities to meet up with you this year.
Our team is stronger than ever and moving into 2020, we hope to build upon our success here in Westminster and connect with you even more!
Wishing you a great 2020,
City Manager, Westminster Team
