Three cheers for Champion Brewing Company

ChampionBarfront

Even before he got into home-brewing as a hobby, Hunter Smith thought it would be great to own and operate a brewery one day. Like many craft brewers, he says, he began with home-brewing and worked his way into the business, driven by “punk rock values” and sincere passion.

And business is good when the business is good beer.

As one of Virginia’s fastest-growing breweries, Champion Brewing Company has to brew a lot of beer to keep up with demand. In fact, they brew over 10,000 barrels a year, and delivering the best and freshest product is something Champion Brewing takes seriously. That’s where Ting’s crazy fast Internet comes in.

Ting Unboxing: Ting Internet Box

The Ting Internet Box may not be much to look at but it’s got it where it counts. Consider that it’s going to spend its life tucked away in a closet, under a desk or in the basement; it doesn’t have to look amazing. It just has to do its job: Take the crazy fast fiber Internet from the Ting city network and bring it into your home / business / clubhouse / treehouse / garden shed / whatever.

Connect a modern computer with an ethernet cable and get up near the top end of your crazy fast fiber’s symmetrical gigabit (1,000 Mbps) speeds. It also bathes your home in sweet, sweet Wi-Fi so you can get all your various phones, laptops, tablets, Internet of Things things, home security cameras, home automation gear, thermostats, set top boxes, game consoles and Internet-ready devices of every stripe online.

Watch in horror as we pull this innocent purveyor of crazy fast fiber Internet from the box in which it is so comfortably nestled, throw it into the bright lights of our studio and poke, prod and push at it until it gives up all its secrets.

Ask an Exec: Will Ting Internet have a pre-order system?

Don R. asks if we’ll consider “neighborhood leaders” or some sort of pre-order system so areas with high demand for Ting Internet can get pushed up the priority list.

Adam Eisner responds with some insight into our current rollout in Charlottesville, our plans for 2016 and the best way to help us consider bringing Ting Internet to your community.

Holly Springs, NC to be the next Ting Internet town

Holly-Springs-newsletterGuys, guys. Listen. Guys. Great news. Guys. You listening? It’s good. Seriously. Oh man. Guys?

We’ve just been informed that we’re supposed to approach these sorts of announcements with gravitas and a certain quiet dignity. Apologies. Let’s try that again.

Ting Internet is pleased to announce that Holly Springs is set to be the next Ting Internet town. The initial demand assessment and generation will begin in the last quarter of 2015 (AKA right about now). That demand will guide network construction, which could get underway as soon as the first half of 2016.

With this announcement, Holly Springs is on its way to becoming the third Ting Internet town, joining Charlottesville, VA and Westminster, MD which are already live and serving up crazy fast Internet to residents even as those local fiber networks continue to expand their footprint.

Watch the Ting Internet Holly Springs local site for all the details and read this introductory post from our own Michael Goldstein for more details.
