In our Sandpoint progress reports, we offer as much information as we possibly can on the fiber network build process. We’ll also talk about Ting events, promotions and some of the work we’re doing in the Sandpoint community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.
Phase 1 construction
Last month, our crews officially started work on the Sandpoint fiber network. It’s been steady progress so far.
We anticipate lighting up our first customer in June. We can’t wait for homes and businesses in Sandpoint to get lit with fiber and finally have access to crazy fast and reliable Internet.
Catch some of the construction in action in our slideshow.
Announcing Phase 2
At our Ting community night at the Panida Theater on May 8, we officially announced where Phase 2 construction will take place. Check out the map below for a detailed look at our next phase.
Stay tuned for the pre-order deadline for Phase 2. We’ll give advance notice in writing to all residents and businesses in the area before we roll in and get to work. For now, check out our post on what you can expect from construction.
Don’t forget: pre-order Ting
The deadline to pre-order Ting for Phase 1 is August 15, 2018.
Pre-order Ting Internet. A pre-order costs $9. It will be credited to your first bill and comes with perks.
What’s the difference between the 5/5 and gigabit?
If you’re not sure which Internet to choose, the 5/5 or Ting gigabit, take a look at this video. Our VP of Networks, Adam Eisner, discusses the differences between the two.
What Ting has been up to here in Sandpoint
You may have seen us out and about around town lately. In March, Ting officially became a member of The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce. We were also a sponsor at the 7B Women Annual Conference.
Ting joined the board of the Bonner County Economic Development Corporation and also became a member of Ponderay Rotary. We even had quite a bit of fun sponsoring the Ponderay Rotary Duck Derby, which supports local scholarships for education.
Ting Sandpoint sponsored four gaming consoles for the remodeled East Bonner County Library. We sponsored Sandpoint’s Finest 2017 and also donated a $1000 scholarship for MakerPoint Studio’s Ting-kering Camp.
We were proud sponsors of Cartwheels for Cancer this year. Our donation helped support members of our community battling cancer and also funded youth gymnastics scholarships.
On May 8, we hosted a Community Night for everyone in Sandpoint to come and learn about fiber Internet. It was a great evening of meeting the community, answering questions and enjoying delicious local refreshments.
