In our Westminster progress reports, we 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 Westminster community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.
In our last construction update, we announced that Phase 3 addresses could get fiber Internet. We also talked a bit about construction progress in Phase 4.
An update for Phase 4
Construction continues in Phase 4 of the Westminster Fiber Network build. City crews are pulling fiber underground through conduit placed earlier in construction. They’re also splicing connections and placing drops.
Splicing is a process where a specialized piece of equipment called a splicer takes two pieces of fiber and fuses them together with a tiny and very nearly optically perfect laser weld.
A fiber drop is the last connection that gets your home wired directly to the network.
Remember, you can check out our list of fiber networking terms to get a full picture of the work the City of Westminster is doing in your neighborhood.
If you live in Phase 4 and want Ting service just go to ting.com/westminster and follow the prompts to order service.
You’ll also be asked to sign an access agreement with the City of Westminster so they can bring a fiber drop to your property.
