So you’ve just pre-ordered Ting Internet. What now?

Thanks for placing your pre-order with Ting. Pre-ordering is more than a waitlist, it’s like a vote for your neighborhood to get fiber first. Your pre-order also gets you all the relevant discounts for your Ting connection once we’re ready to light up your neighborhood.
This post will detail what you can do while you wait for fiber to come to your neighborhood. But first, here’s a little information on why you might have to wait a bit before we’re ready to light up your home or business.
Why fiber is a long game
Fiber requires construction. That’s why, when we talk about fiber, we always talk in terms of “construction work” and “building the network.”
It might interest you to know that the main backbone of America’s Internet infrastructure is fiber. From the larger Internet, most towns, cities and metropolises get connected with old copper wiring, limiting our ability to use the Internet to its full potential. For the most part, fiber is brand new technology for neighborhoods, towns and cities. Fiber requires brand new infrastructure.
When Ting comes in, we’re rewiring Ting Towns with fiber, replacing old copper networks that were built for the telephone and later cable TV.
Fiber to the home brings the Internet of the future right to your door and into your home or business. It enables faster communication for a digital age. Fiber doesn’t happen overnight. Its an investment in the future. It’s about commitment and partnership. That’s why Ting is in it for the long haul in the towns we partner with.
We work with local municipalities to install fiber conduit underground or on aerial poles. Ting aims to pass every address in every neighborhood where we bring fiber. That way, once the network is live, everyone who wants Ting will be able to get it.
Follow construction updates for your town
In our construction and community updates, 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 your local community. We post construction updates about every two months and always provide maps of where we’re currently working on the network build.
