fuquayvarina An update on Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the fiber network build in Fuquay-Varina Stacy Reed • November 15, 2018 if( has_post_thumbnail( $post_id ) ): ?> endif; ?> 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. An update on Phase 1 and Phase 2 In our last update, we announced Phase 2 construction was underway in Fuquay-Varina! This time we’ll provide an update on our progress in Phase 1 and Phase 2 and talk about what the team has been up to around town. Progress in Phase 1 In Alston Ridge and Village of Sippihaw, our teams are working on blowing fiber and will begin placing drops soon. A fiber drop is the last bit of fiber that gets your home connected directly to the network. Before we place a fiber drop on your property, you’ll get a call from our team to book a pre-fielding appointment. Pre-fielding is a service unique to Ting where a member of our team meets with you to mark your preferred route for fiber to take from the network, across your property and to your home. We do our best to lay fiber in the place where you want it. In Ashford Commons, Woodchase, Brookside and The Oaks, we’re in the midst of blowing fiber. Fiber blowing is a process where we route fiber through the previously placed conduit, often without the need to dig. After we’re done blowing fiber we move on the pre-fielding, then drops, then installations. In Buckhaven, Varina Park and Fern Valley construction has finished up and fiber blowing is underway. Phase 1, don’t forget to pre-order If you live in one of the neighborhoods mentioned above, and you want the fastest Internet around, don’t miss your pre-order deadline. When you pre-order Ting gigabit Internet, you get $250 off your startup costs. That covers installation and leaves $50 to go toward your first bill. You’ll also be one of the first to get installed when we’re ready to light up your street. The deadline for Phase 1 is November 30, 2018. Get that pre-order in! Pre-order Ting Progress in Phase 2 In Phase 2A, Woodland Point, Southview Point and Southern Oaks, construction has wrapped! Our teams will start blowing fiber this month. In Phase 2B, Ridges at Kenneth Street and Parker Pointe and Carriage Heights, construction is currently underway. We’re in the stage of fiber we like to call dirt and hard work. If you see our crews laying conduit underground, give us a wave! Phase 2, don’t forget to pre-order If you live in one of the neighborhoods mentioned above, and you want the fastest Internet around, don’t miss your pre-order deadline. When you pre-order Ting gigabit Internet, you get $250 off your startup costs. That covers installation and leaves $50 to go toward your first bill. You’ll also be one of the first to get installed when we’re ready to light up your street. The deadline for Phase 2A and 2B is November 30, 2018. Get that pre-order in! Pre-order Ting Didn’t see your neighborhood? If your neighborhood isn’t one of our announced phases, we don’t have an ETA for fiber coming to you just yet.

Ting around town The Ting Team was at Celebrate Fuquay-Varina on October 4 in Downtown Fuquay-Varina. This awesome event brought the community together for live music, food, activities, craft beer and a kids zone too!
