“Pre-fielding” for faster, smarter fiber installation

pre-fielding

“Pre-fielding” with Thomas Russell in Holly Springs

No two yards are alike.

While Ting technicians make it look easy to lay fiber (kudos to them) it’s more complicated than it may seem. Every home is different and there is no one size fits all approach to bringing fiber up from the street and into the premises.

That’s where Thomas Russell, the Ting “pre-fielder” in Holly Springs comes in.

Thomas will be working on site to manage the placement of fiber drops. A fiber drop is where techs bring the last line of fiber from the network directly to your home. Our pre-fielding service will ensure fiber gets placed as close as possible to where you want it around your home, while also making sure it doesn’t interfere with existing utilities, landscaping and the like.

When a Ting pre-fielder arrives on site for your appointment, they review existing utilities and make sure the path for the fiber drop doesn’t get in the way of things like sprinkler systems and invisible dog fences. We’ll also work with you to get the fiber drop as close as possible to your preferred path.

When you cancel cable TV, you may be surprised to notice that it’s easy to miss the premieres of your favorite shows since you’re not seeing commercials.

The good news is that there’s a flood of new TV schedule services out there to help so you never have to miss your favorite show again.

Here are a few of our favorite picks for the best ways to keep track of what you’re watching.

Holly Springs High School’s Robotics program

Engaging students in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) subjects goes beyond the classroom. Organizations, administrators, teachers and student leaders are coming up with new and exciting ways to help youth acquire life-changing interests and skills that will help them build work readiness.

At Holly Springs High School, the Hawktimus Prime Robotics Team does just that. This local student team designs and builds new robots every year to enter into state and national robotics competitions.

We got the chance to catch up with Andrew Pratt, the team’s 2017-2018 Sponsorship Captain, and chat a bit about the program’s history, their involvement in FIRST competitions (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and their sponsorship from Ting Internet.

Your Internet speed wired in compared to Wi-Fi

Comparing wired-in Internet speed to Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi was a total game-changer; no longer was the Internet connection confined to the desk or the reach of an Ethernet cable. Now, whether you’re at home, work or in the local coffee shop, when you access the Internet, chances are good you’re doing so wirelessly.

While the benefits of Wi-Fi are obvious, it has its limitations. The biggest trade-off is Internet speed. If you’re on a gigabit connection, you cannot take full advantage of all the bandwidth that’s available to you on a single Wi-Fi device. The real power of gigabit comes when you have multiple Wi-Fi devices connected to the network with no slowdown whatsoever. That said, for the absolute fastest speeds on a single device (and especially if you’re conducting a speed test to see your maximum throughput) you’ll want to go wired.

If you’ve ever conducted an Internet speed test of your home Wi-Fi and compared it to a wired connection, you’ve seen the difference first-hand. Here’s what’s going on.
