Ting Park and Wi-Fi: sharing access to drive-up Internet hotspots in your community

This is a special update for the Fuquay-Varina community. Our usual community updates for Fuquay-Varina will resume once we’re through this unprecedented COVID-19 situation.
Internet access is an essential service. The COVID-19 pandemic that we’re all weathering has made that abundantly clear.
As mentioned in our Ting Internet COVID-19 update and in the broader Tucows COVID-19 statement, the health and safety of our team, our customers and the community at large are our top priority. For this reason, we have suspended all Ting Internet indoor installations, here and elsewhere. We will reschedule installations as soon as it is safe to do so.
In the interim, Ting Internet, The Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce and Geek iT are working hard to ensure everyone has at least some access to the Internet. Ting and the Chamber of Commerce are supplying access while Geek iT has supplied the access point and completed the installation of it for free.
The Ting Internet Fuquay-Varina “Park and Wi-Fi” spot is:

Please stay in your vehicles, minimize social interaction, maintain social distancing protocols and adhere to the suggestions made by your health officials.
Bring your laptops, tablets and phones and do what you need to do online. Teleconference from the car, check in on friends and family, grab some online education resources to keep the kids going.
Ting around town
In a further effort to support the Fuquay-Varina community, Ting Internet is donating $500 to the Fuquay-Varina Emergency Food Pantry to help those who need access to food supplies at this time.
To support our Fuquay-Varina business community, we’re pre-purchasing gift cards from local businesses during this crisis and will be giving them away in current and future promotional activities in Fuquay-Varina. These gift cards can be used when ordering delivery or pickup or can be saved for later use. Check out our Ting Fuquay-Varina Facebook page to see how you can participate.
Make sure you visit our social media channels for the most up to date information. Help us spread some positivity on our Ting Fuquay-Varina Facebook page and be eligible to win one year free streaming of your choice (Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, etc.)!
Again, we encourage everyone to stay home, maintain social distancing and stay safe. We’ll get through this together.
