Gigabit Network Expansion Underway in Westminster, Maryland

  • Mid‐Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC)
  • SMC
  • Ting
  • Westminster Fiber Network (WFN)
WESTMINSTER, MD – The city of Westminster Mayor and Common Council selected SMC, a telecommunications, utility and government contracting firm located in Tracy’s Landing, Maryland, to continue Phase 1 and Phase 2 construction of the Westminster Fiber Network (WFN). When construction of these phases is completed in 2017, an additional 2,700 homes and businesses, covering most of the western portion of the city, will have access to affordable gigabit Internet services, powered by Ting.

The city of Westminster celebrated the lighting of the WFN in June of 2015. This expansion of the WFN is an important milestone and demonstrates the city’s continued commitment to revolutionize Internet access, bring local jobs, and drive innovation that will enable the community to thrive.

The WFN is already delivering value to the community. Businesses like Westminster-based Open Professional Group, are improving their bottom line by saving money on their monthly Internet bills and increasing productivity with gigabit Internet speeds. Ting is set to open the Ting Makerspace, located in downtown Westminster, to the public in the fall of 2016. Finally, the Mid‐Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC), headquartered in Westminster, launched to foster technology culture, recruit and develop technology entrepreneurs, and assist tech start-ups deploying innovative solutions.
