The road to fiber: how fiber optic infrastructure gets built

fiber optic infrastructure

The most common question we get about Ting Internet is “when can I get it?” It speaks to the need for infrastructure much faster and more reliable than the old copper networks. Copper simply wasn’t designed to provide Internet access.

While we’d love to get the whole of North America wired (glassed?) up with the access it so sorely needs, it bears mentioning that fiber is a marathon, not a sprint.

The FCC plans to kill net neutrality. Here’s how to stop them

A brief overview of the FCC’s plan to kill net neutrality

Net neutrality seems to be on everyone’s mind right now as we steel ourselves for the FCC’s upcoming vote on December 14. It seems the top priority for these Trump-appointed FCC members is to overturn the net neutrality regulations that were hard won under the last administration. Next month’s vote to do just that is very likely to pass by a three-to-two margin.

Right now, the Internet is classified as a public utility under Title II. This allows each Internet user the ability to do what they want online, without preferential treatment given to some websites that would make them faster than others. That’s one of the biggest concerns, that without net neutrality, the Internet will become like two lanes of traffic: the high-speed lane in which the industry’s bigwigs and corporations pay for faster delivery speeds, and the throttled slow lane for everyone else, including startups and lesser-known companies that can’t afford the fast lane.

The positive impact of fiber Internet on the economy and business

Fiber Internet brings community and local business benefits that go way beyond just crazy fast, reliable Internet, though it certainly brings that.

The day-to-day impact of higher Internet speeds and more efficient communications can have huge ramifications for all levels of business, from your local coffee shop to a big box store with dozens of employees.

Practical, hands-on career experiences can make all the difference for students when it comes to building a set of hard skills to support their post-grad endeavors.

Ting Internet was excited to host Michael N. for a writing internship in Westminster, MD. Michael was a student in Josh Ambrose’s class at McDaniel College, Writing for Main Street.

Ting Westminster internshipMichael had the chance to write for the Ting Westminster blog for the fall semester from September to December 2017. He covered local events as well as customer features, and assembled his work into fun blog posts to be distributed on social media.

Ting was involved in several initiatives and Michael got to cover our involvement at Fallfest and the Oyster Stroll. His customer profiles featured Ting Internet customers and detailed the practical uses of fiber internet in day-to-day life.

We’re proud to host interns like Michael and had a fantastic time working with him to produce some great online content.
