Hey, we’re Ting. You may have met our team around town, seen one of our ads or heard about us coming soon to your neighborhood. Pleased to meet you. If you’re wondering what is Ting Internet and what it is exactly we do, you’ve come to the right place.
Ting Internet is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that builds, lights and services fiber networks across the US.
Ting crazy fast fiber Internet is radically different from the old, slow and unreliable copper Internet connections we’re all used to. It stands to reason that Ting is radically different from the behemoth cable companies you’ve dealt with in the past.
Ting Internet is fiber-optic Internet. What does that mean? Ting runs on network infrastructure that is built with the Internet in mind.
We think of fiber as the great equalizer. America’s Internet lags far behind the rest of the world. Fiber brings us up to speed. Fiber is fast, boringly reliable and has a huge capacity for future growth. As technology evolves, we’ll need stronger and better Internet. Fiber factors this growth in from the start.
Ting is a part of Tucows (TCX), a company that’s been doing more with the Internet since 1994. In 2012, Ting formed and launched Ting Mobile, a shockingly affordable cell phone service. In 2015, Ting Internet announced its first fiber Ting Town would be Charlottesville VA, and began providing crazy fast gigabit fiber Internet to local homes and businesses.
What is Ting gigabit fiber?
Ting gigabit fiber is the fastest Internet available today. Ting gigabit gets you symmetrical upload and download speeds up to 1000 Mbps. That means everyone in your home can download, stream, video chat, surf, listen to music, run home automation devices and more, all at the same time, without buffering, delay or downtime.
How much does it cost?
Fair question. Ting gigabit fiber costs $89/month, plus your start-up fees, but if you pre-order Ting Internet we give you a hefty discount. That gets you unlimited monthly data with no caps or limits on what you use.
Since we started our fiber service in Charlottesville, we’ve never raised our prices. Ditto goes for Westminster and Holly Springs. We don’t do contracts or termination fees, and our customers are free to leave Ting at any time (imagine that).
Who is it for?
Ting gigabit fiber is for people who use the Internet. These days, that’s pretty much everyone. When we go into a town, we do our best to wire entire neighborhoods and pass every residence along the way.
Ting is great for families, businesses, students, entrepreneurs and more. Ting is for people who want to future-proof their homes. It’s for cord-cutters who watch all their TV online and for people who work from home and need to move big files around quickly. It’s for people who love the direction home automation is going and want to shore up their home’s ability to get a quality connection.
