Ting crazy fast fiber Internet is coming to Wake Forest

Wake Forest

Hey, Wake Forest. We’re Ting, pleased to meet you.

Maybe you’ve heard rumblings from the other side of Raleigh about that crazy fast fiber Internet that Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina have got their hands on. Maybe you’ve been hoping for some better Internet options yourselves. If you have, then we get to make your day, because Wake Forest will be the next town to get Ting crazy fast fiber Internet. True gigabit fiber Internet for homes and businesses.

Pre-orders are open for Wake Forest

You can check your address and place a pre-order for Ting crazy fast fiber Internet on the Ting Internet Wake Forest page we just launched.

A one-time $9 pre-order is a vote for your neighborhood to get fiber sooner rather than later; pre-orders are an important factor in planning the network build. Your pre-order also secures the best possible install price, up to and including the full cost of installation.

We’ll be posting regular construction updates here on the Ting Wake Forest blog, where you can keep track of the build as it approaches your neighborhood.

Ting fiber Internet: it’s not just about numbers

If you haven’t heard of Ting, no worries. We’re a fiber Internet company that brings symmetrical gigabit speeds to towns and cities across the US. What is symmetrical gigabit? Symmetrical means the same gigabit (1000 megabit) speeds for both upload and download. In other words, the fastest Internet around.

That’s crazy fast. Fiber is about speed, reliability and efficiency. With a gigabit connection, a busy family and a small business can use the Internet to do everything they need to get done in a day, without buffering or stalling. Symmetrical gigabit basically removes bandwidth from the list of things you have to think about.

What’s more, Ting Internet brings true fiber to the premises (FTTP). That means every address installed on the Ting fiber network has its own end-to-end fiber connection. With FTTP, there’s less signal degradation over long distances and more reliability than other “fiber backed” and asymmetrical offerings.

That’s a pretty incredible thing, especially when you consider how important the Internet is for today’s businesses, schools, hospitals and more.

The work we do at Ting isn’t just about a better Netflix experience (though, Ting fiber totally makes streaming in 4K a dream) it’s about replacing old, existing copper networks that were built for telephones and TVs with infrastructure that is better equipped to serve our needs in the future.

Fast, reliable Internet access is a good news story for businesses too. Mainstreet businesses like Jeannie Birds in Westminster, MD. Tech businesses like Arqball in Charlottesville, VA.

In other towns we serve, we’ve seen a burgeoning entrepreneurial spirit in the community. We’ve seen Maker communities take root and evolve.

In other words, Ting crazy fast fiber Internet is about more than just crazy fast speeds.

Sounds great. When can I get Ting Internet?

Building and lighting a fiber network isn’t as simple as flipping a switch, but we do have a head start here because of all the work we’ve been doing down the road in Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina. That said, there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Along the way, you can expect regular updates from us here on the Ting Wake Forest blog. We’re also on Twitter and Facebook.

When you pre-order, you get notified whenever we post an update. Another little perk. We look forward to working with you and the Town of Wake Forest. You’ll be hearing plenty from us and we’re always available to answer or talk through what crazy fast fiber Internet means to Wake Forest.
