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

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.

Looking for family-friendly streaming content for summer fun?

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.

Ting network construction update May 2017

Hey, Sandpoint. It’s been a while. Let’s talk about where we’re at.

Over the past few months we’ve been hard at work, preparing to bring crazy fast fiber Internet to Sandpoint.

In February, City Council approved several agreements that moved us closer to breaking ground. Now we’re gearing up to go and setting up our Ting data center at the corner of Superior and Ella Avenue. The last little while has been all about cementing partnerships with the City. Now we’re focused on planning and design.
