Announcing Phase 2 of the fiber network

Welcome to Ting’s progress reports for Wake Forest. In these updates, we’ll 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 Wake Forest community. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay up on the latest.
Hey Wake Forest! In our last construction update, we announced that fiber network construction had just begun in Phase 1, Heritage North.
Our crews are still hard at work laying the conduit that protects the fiber itself underground. We continue to put all the necessary infrastructure in place to bring fiber directly to homes in the area. If you live in Phase 1, be sure to check out our post on what to expect from construction in your neighborhood.
Phase 2: construction coming this summer
The network is growing and our crews will be starting work in Phase 2 this summer. Phase 2 includes Heath Ridge Village, Deacons Ridge, Avondale and Cardinal Hills.
If you live in Phase 2, be sure to check out our post on what to expect from construction in your neighborhood. When we’re closer to starting work, expect a mailer arriving at your address detailing the construction process.
Don’t forget to pre-order
Pre-orders are open for Wake Forest. Head to ting.com/wakeforest and enter your address to pre-order gigabit Ting Internet and save $250 on your set up costs. That gets you a free installation (usually $199) plus a $50 credit to go on your second month’s bill.
Pre-orders can and do impact our network build plans. We take pre-orders into consideration when we’re determining the demand for Ting in a particular neighborhood. Make sure you get your pre-order in and encourage your neighbors to do the same!
Didn’t see your neighborhood?
If you don’t see your neighborhood represented in our phase map just yet, that means we can’t offer an ETA today. It doesn’t mean we’re not coming. We publish construction updates every two months. Keep an eye on these construction updates for more information coming soon.
Ting around town
Ting was at Mardi Gras and Multicultural Day. Thanks to everyone who came out to chat with us about Ting Internet in Wake Forest. Ting also sponsored STEM Day (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and had a great time at the event! Check out a couple photos of the day below.
Our team also hosted a community meeting for residents to come out and learn more about Ting coming to town. We had a great turnout with lots of thoughtful questions and feedback. Thanks to everyone who came out!
