Welcome to Ting’s progress reports for Fuquay-Varina. In these updates, we’ll 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 Fuquay-Varina community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.
Construction on the Fuquay-Varina fiber network has officially begun! This is the first construction update to let you know where the Ting fiber build is at in your town. You can check back here for regular updates, see where we’re at and find out if we’re working in your neighborhood yet.
Getting to work in Phase 1
We kicked things off in Alston Ridge in June. Now, we’re excited to let you know what neighborhoods will be included in Phase 1 of our build. Check out the map to see where we’ll be building in Phase 1.
What to expect from construction
If you’re located in Phase 1, you’ll see our crews working in your neighborhood. Find out more about the construction process and what to expect when we roll up with our trucks here.
Construction work will happen in the city-owned right-of-way, the area on the street side of your home that’s owned by the city and that is reserved for utilities. If you’ve ever noticed a water cap on your lawn, that’s typically around the dividing line between your property and the city’s property.
At this point, we anticipate lighting up our first customers in Phase 1 in early 2019.
Want to learn more about construction? In the video below, we’ll take you behind the scenes in neighboring, Holly Springs. Learn more about the stage of construction we call “dirt and hard work.”
Phase 1 deadline to pre-order
The deadline to pre-order Ting (and secure your installation discount) in Phase 1 is September 30, 2018.
Head to ting.com/fuquayvarina and enter your address to pre-order Ting gigabit and save $250 on your start up costs.
What’s the deal with pre-ordering?
Your $9 pre-order is a one-time refundable charge that is returned as a credit on your first month’s Ting bill. Pre-ordering doesn’t just get you the best possible discount on Ting crazy fast fiber Internet (that’s a $250 installation discount on Ting gigabit), it also works like a vote to bring fiber to your neighborhood.
Remember, if you pre-order you also secure the earliest possible installation date.
Find out more about pre-ordering here.
When do I get installed?
Currently, we anticipate installing our first customers in Phase 1 in early 2019.
Where is construction headed next?

Ting around town
Since we announced we were coming to Fuquay-Varina at the end of April, we’ve been busy around town spreading the word about Ting.
We held a launch event in early May to celebrate Ting coming to town at Aviator Brewery.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate and support Ting. We loved chatting with you about crazy fast fiber and everything it can do for your community.
On Memorial Day weekend, we were at the Fuquay-Varina Balloon Festival and we also had a great time at the Growers Market in June.
We’ll be back at the Growers Market throughout the summer, keep an eye out for us!
