Celebrate Holly Springs with us at Ting Park

We’re having a Party in Ting Park

We’ve got some pretty exciting news for Ting and for Holly Springs.

The North Complex Athletic Facility has been officially renamed Ting Park. We’re happy to sponsor this wonderful stadium and parks facility, brought to you by the Town of Holly Springs.

To celebrate, we’re throwing a community party in the newly branded Ting Park. Everyone is welcome to this family-friendly fun event to celebrate everything this enviable athletic complex brings to the area. From community sporting events to family fun and active living, this is what Holly Springs is all about.

There will be food, music, a ribbon cutting ceremony, a tribute to our honored veterans and fun free activities for the kids. The first 250 party guests will get a free dinner on Ting!

We’re inviting local retail and craft vendors as well as food trucks, so come and support the local businesses and entrepreneurs that make Holly Springs so great.

How do you decide which ONT to use?

Ask

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

Deciding which ONT to use

Want to get the attention of Ting’s VP of Internet, Adam Eisner? Ask him about our ONT.


An ONT (Optical Network Terminal) is your home’s main connection back to the fiber network. In most cases, it’s a gray box attached to the side of your home with a fiber line plugged in.

ONTs come in a number of configurations. “When we first launched Ting Internet, we used (what we could call) an all-in-one gateway,” says Eisner. “The fiber terminated into the box and that box was also responsible for broadcasting wireless Internet throughout a home of business.”

So why did we replace our original ONT? “We eventually moved away from that model, really because we found it wasn’t flexible enough for what people wanted to do with their Internet service.”

Ting wants you to be able to use your Internet however you want. It’s yours, after all.

“We view ourselves as a fat pipe of Internet that doesn’t really want to get in the way of the king of things the customer wants to use the Internet for.”

Does Ting Internet offer home phone service?

Occasionally, we’re asked if we have any plans to roll out a home phone service to complement our Internet service.

We don’t.



According to Adam Eisner, VP of Internet, there’s an ongoing discussion of what services pair well with Internet service. However, at present home phone isn’t one of them. He adds that Ting does offer a mobile phone product, which is a great option, especially for families.

As for the future, we’re always looking at our options.

What is the difference between 5/5 and gigabit fiber Internet?

Ask

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

What is the difference between 5/5 and gigabit fiber Internet?

A common question regarding our fiber Internet service packages is the difference between our 5/5 and gigabit plans.

Put simply, 5/5 (5 Mbps upload and download) is fine for people that visit the Internet. Gigabit, which is 1000 Mbps upload and download, is for people that live there.
