Why you should pre-order Ting Internet

Want the fastest Internet available today? You can check your address and place a pre-order for Ting crazy fast fiber Internet on the Ting Internet Fullerton page. Ting gigabit for home costs $79/mo and Ting gigabit for business costs $139/mo.

A pre-order costs $9 and is refundable at any time. Your pre-order will get you a free installation of gigabit Internet plus a credit on your first bill.

When you pre-order, you’ll also get installed first when construction wraps and your street is being lit. We fulfill pre-orders first, then orders placed after the pre-order deadline for your neighborhood.

Your pre-order gets you free installation, plus a little extra

A residential installation of Ting gigabit Internet typically costs $29, but when you pre-order, your installation is free. Similarly, a business installation of Ting gigabit Internet costs $59, but when you pre-order, your installation is free.

You’ll also get some credit on your first month’s bill. Residential pre-orders will get an extra $50 off and business pre-orders will get an extra $80 off.

How residential pre-orders work

Head to ting.com/fullerton, enter your address and follow the prompts on screen. You’ll be charged a one-time, refundable pre-order of $9.

Your pre-order will secure you a value of $79. $29 goes toward your installation (making it free!) which leaves you with a $50 credit on your first Ting bill.

How business pre-orders work

Head to ting.com/fullerton, enter your address and follow the prompts on screen. You’ll be charged a one-time, refundable pre-order of $9.

Your pre-order will secure you a value of $139. $59 goes toward your installation (making it free!) which leaves you with an $80 credit on your first Ting bill.

Is the $9 refundable?

If you choose not to get Ting crazy fast fiber Internet after placing a pre-order, we’re not going to deny you a refund on your $9. You’re under no obligation to get our service when you make a pre-order. That’s not how we operate (just ask our mobile customers). We’d much rather part as friends. Don’t worry, though. We’re not in the business of keeping you waiting, making you navigate a phone tree in order to speak to a real person or otherwise get in your way.

Why take a deposit at all?

Making a pre-order a transaction instead of an informal arrangement has a way of making things real. As we said, $9 isn’t a lot of money by most accounts but no one is going to fork it over without some understanding of what they’re buying into.

Think of the $9 as being a bit like the quarter some supermarkets will ask you to insert in order to get a shopping cart from the corral. It’s not a binding “I will return this cart” kind of thing. It’s more a small incentive to do so. You could shop, take your cart out to the lot, load the car then save yourself a trip to the cart corral by forfeiting your $0.25. Indeed, some people do. Most, though, don’t.

In short, it’s one thing to say “I want faster, more reliable Internet access.” It’s another thing to actually break free of the incumbent copper guys and take the steps to make the move.

Taking a deposit is the easiest and most binary way of gauging real, serious interest.

So, should I pre-order Ting Internet?

I mean, we’d argue that you should, yeah.
