Did Ting ever feel like quitting the fiber game?

A famous puppet once said, “Do or do not. There is no try.” I think it was Kermit. Or maybe the mouse from Today’s Special… it’s hard to remember these things.

So when Luke Fredenburg asks if Ting ever felt like quitting the fiber game, Adam Eisner, VP of Internet, fires back with defiant “no.”

Why is fiber optic Internet important infrastructure for America?

The Internet. A series of tubes.

What if we told you these tubes are as important as the roads you drive on. Or the railway system. Or whatever Elon Musk is working on next. “But I don’t even commute,” you say. That may be true. But you definitely tele-commute. There’s no avoiding it.

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.

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.
