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.
In our last construction update, we announced that the Ting fiber network in Sandpoint was officially live. Homes and businesses are getting lit with fiber every day in Phase 1 of our network build. We hope everyone who has Ting is loving their fiber connection so far.
If you own a business or live in Phase 1 of our network build, you can get Ting.
To order Ting, head to ting.com/sandpoint, enter your address and follow the prompts. Our team will call to book your installation soon.
What’s up in Phase 2
Phase 2 of construction is underway. Take a look at the area south of Highway 2 highlighted on the map below to see what area is included in our next phase of construction. The network is growing!
The deadline to pre-order Ting in Phase 2 is November 30, 2018.
If you live or work in Phase 2, check out our post on what to expect from construction in the neighborhood.
Where to next? Help us decide.
Pre-orders are one factor that help us determine where we build next. We look at a number of things when we’re rolling out new phases and definitely consider neighborhoods with a high demand for Ting.
Your $9 pre-order is a one-time, refundable fee that is returned to you on your first Ting bill. When you pre-order Ting gigabit, you’ll get $200 off your start-up costs. That covers the full cost of installation.
Ting for your vacation home
Got a vacation home? Our symmetrical 5 Mbps plan for $19/mo supports security systems while vacationers are away.
You can get Ting gigabit ($89/mo) for while you’re in town, and switch to Ting 5/5 when you close up for the season.
Get free Ting powered Wi-Fi at Evans Brothers Coffee
Free Ting powered Wi-Fi is now available at Evans Brothers. We celebrated on July 30 with Ting purchasing all beverages ordered from 8 to 10 am. We also had some swag for customers to pick up when they dropped by. Thanks to everyone who came by and chatted with us about Ting.
Ting around town
On July 14 the Ting Team was at BeerFest, a Chamber of Commerce event with around 1,500 people in attendance. On August 3, we were at Festival at Sandpoint a music festival on the lake. Ting hosted a booth and sponsored the Amos Lee Concert.
We held a second party for Phase 1 to give people another chance to come out, meet the team and get all their questions answered before their pre-order deadline of August 15.
Look out for the Ting Team at the 7B Women’s Third Annual Boobs-n-Beer: 5K Fun Run and Beer Fest on September 30. Ting will be sponsoring the event and will be onsite running the Bratwurst stand. Come by and ask us all your questions about fiber. You’ll be able to pre-order with us too.
