Get fiber to your home without cost or obligation

If you think you could ever conceivably want the fastest Internet around at your home or business, you should sign the City of Westminster’s access agreement.
The access agreement in no way obliges you to get service from Ting or from any other Internet service provider. What it does is give the City permission to install a “fiber drop” on your property at no cost to you.
What is a fiber drop?
A fiber drop is the last few feet from the curb to your premises. It’s sometimes called “fiber to the home” or “fiber to the premises.”
It’s what physically connects your place to the larger Westminster municipal fiber network.
Should I get a fiber drop?
If you’re reading this, we can assume you have at least a passing interest in crazy fast fiber Internet. So, the answer is yes. You should sign the access agreement and get a fiber drop on your property.
Well, you can always decide not to get crazy fast fiber Internet. Again, the drop in no way binds you to accept fiber Internet service from anyone. Conversely, though, if you don’t sign an access agreement and you decide later that you want fast, reliable fiber Internet, you’re basically at the back of the queue.
Said differently, if the crew that’s installing fiber drops passes your place by because you haven’t signed an access agreement, you could be waiting a long time for them to come back around. They will be moving on to the next block and the next development and they won’t be looking back until the physical construction starts to slow down.
If you have any questions at all about the access agreement, what’s involved in getting a fiber drop on your property, or what this whole crazy fast fiber Internet thing is all about, give us a ring. We’ll be happy to talk through the finer points. 443-201-7207.
