We’re starting network construction in Phase 1
Our crews have hit the ground running and Sandpoint fiber construction is officially underway in Phase 1 of our network build. We can’t wait to bring crazy fast fiber to homes and businesses in the area.
Thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered so far and expressed interest in Ting. In the planning phase of our build, most of our work took place behind the scenes. We’re excited to get started on the part we like to call “dirt and hard work.”
Not in Phase 1? Don’t worry. We plan to build the network out to most of Sandpoint. Once construction begins, we’ll continue, neighborhood by neighborhood, and will announce our next phase as soon as we can.
What to expect from construction
If you’re located in Phase 1, you’ll see our crews working in your neighborhood. You can find out more about the construction process and what to expect when we roll up with our trucks.
We’ll be working in the City owned right-of-way, which is reserved for utilities, between the road and your property line, or in certain areas, the alleyway behind your home.
At this point, we anticipate lighting up our first customers in Phase 1 in June 2018.
Want to learn more about construction? In the video below, we’ll take you behind the scenes in another Ting Town, Holly Springs, NC.
Phase 1 deadline to pre-order
The deadline to pre-order Ting (and secure your installation discount!) in Phase 1 is August 15, 2018.

What’s the deal with pre-ordering?
Your $9 pre-order is a one-time refundable charge and is credited on your first Ting bill. Pre-ordering doesn’t just get you the best possible discount on Ting crazy fast fiber Internet (that’s a $200 installation discount on gigabit), it also works like a vote to bring fiber to your neighborhood.
Remember, if you pre-order you also secure the earliest possible installation date.
Find out more about pre-ordering here.
When do I get installed?
Currently, we anticipate installing our first customers in Phase 1 in June 2018.
Where is construction headed next?
We plan to build the network out to most of Sandpoint. For the most up to date information regarding what neighborhoods we’ll be building in, check back here on our Ting Sandpoint blog.
Look out for our team at local events. We’d love to meet you in person!
