Choose the best smart TV for you

Smart TVs have come a long way from the original clunky and slow devices with limited apps. Now, they are superbly powerful devices running some of the most modern streaming services out there. With their new designs, you don’t need any extra wires, additional brand or expensive universal remotes.

Smart TVs give you all the apps you want in one clean and easy to use TV. Currently, there are three main brands that power the most cord cutting friendly smart TVs out there: Roku TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV Edition.

Let’s take a minute to go over the three big brands and give you a look at the new TVs that have come out.

Will Ting be expanding its Internet service to a broader audience?

Ask

Whether a member of the Ting team or the mayor of a Ting town, we put your questions in front of smart people.

Does Ting plan to expand its Internet service?

A question we’re asked a lot is, “when are you coming to my town/city/state/country?”

The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is a little complicated. Believe us when we say we’d like to be everywhere, right now, offering our unlimited, symmetrical, crazy fast fiber Internet service to one and all. However, with every state, city and municipality comes its own set of challenges and rules.

Thoughts on fiber to the home vs wireless links

Ask

Whether a member of the Ting team or the mayor of a Ting town, we put your questions in front of smart people.

Fiber to the home or wireless links?

You may have heard of a certain giant in the tech space pivoting away from physical fiber to a solution involving fiber-caliber Internet beamed directly into customer’s homes. If that sounds too good to be true, it may just be.


Adam Eisner, VP of Internet, explains that while Ting is keeping a close eye on wireless link technology, we still believe fixed fiber (the kind we put in the ground) will ultimately provide customers with the most consistent, high-speed experience.

Or to put it another way, think about how difficult it is to get Wi-Fi in a basement. Now add a major city into the equation.

What’s happening in Holly Springs

Hey Holly Springs, let’s catch you up on Ting network construction and progress. We’re going to walk you through the network, neighborhood by neighborhood, and let you know where we’re at.

How construction works

Before we get going, here’s a bit of context for how fiber gets to your home.

1. We dig to put conduit in the ground.

2. Super thin fiber optic cables are blown through the conduits.

3. We call everyone who has pre-ordered and ask permission to build a fiber drop to their property. A Ting technician will install a line of cable from where the network meets the edge of your property to the outside of your home. It’s the last bit fiber that gets you connected to the network.

4. Next up is installation. Check out our installation FAQ and our help article on the installation process.

Family-friendly streaming content

Summer is officially here, and for many, that means family time outdoors and around the house. Yet, what happens when you run into every parent’s most aggravating predicament, a rainy summer day? For many, that means movie day and with streaming content, you have a huge library of movies at your fingertips. Yet, what do you do if you want to make sure your kids only get access to family-friendly content?

Well, there are many services that offer family-friendly movies and TV shows and there are also parental controls that allow parents to feel confident their kids only have access to approved content.

Will there ever be more competition in home Internet service?

Ask

Whether a member of the Ting team or the mayor of a Ting town, we put your questions in front of smart people.

Will there be more home Internet service competition in the near future?

The great R. Kelly once said, “The greatest competition is, well, me.” Who knows what he’s talking about, but we can assure you Ting doesn’t think this way. I mean, if we did, there’d be no Ting Internet.


Monica Webb, Ting Internet’s Government Relations, points out that there’s a hunger for better Internet in America. However, many municipalities aren’t being served by the incumbents, and as a result are looking to private providers, like Ting, for help building out faster networks.

And if those efforts are being thwarted by legacy providers, you can step in and help by writing, emailing or calling your elected officials at the state level.

Together, we can fly like fiber Internet eagles… into the future.
