Ting's Next Gigabit Town: Centennial, Colorado

  • Ting
TORONTO, ON — Ting, a provider of fiber-based fixed Internet access, announced that Centennial, Colo., will be the next town to get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting. Ting Internet continues its commitment to bringing dedicated symmetrical gigabit fiber optic Internet infrastructure and the fastest Internet access to smaller towns and cities in the US. Centennial, Colo., population 107,201 (2014 Census) will be the largest Ting town by population to date.

With the launch of the ting.com/centennial local page, demand assessment begins immediately. Pre-orders are being accepted in Centennial starting today.

Realizing Centennial's Fiber Master Plan
“Ting Internet in Centennial will enable faster and more affordable Internet services for both residents and businesses, just as the city’s Fiber Master Plan intended. Technology, and in particular connectivity to the Internet, has become essential to everyday life, so much so that we experience withdrawals when it is not there. Data connectivity needs to be efficient and readily available, and it is at its best when it, ‘just works’ and you don’t have to think even about it. Bringing such a high level of service to Centennial is what makes this collaboration with Ting so exciting,” says Mayor Pro Tem and District 4 Council Member Charles Whelan. Pending demonstrated demand, network construction will begin in Centennial as soon as early 2017.

To get to the pre-order stage, a town passes a series of checks and balances: availability of a fiber backbone, population, density, local permitting and many other factors are considered before Ting Internet formally expresses its intent to bring its fiber Internet service to a town. With these boxes checked, Ting takes a gauge of demand on the ground by raising awareness of gigabit fiber Internet and then opening up to accept pre-orders. "Pre-orders determine not just whether Ting Internet comes to a town, but they also impact where network construction begins," said Adam Eisner, VP of Networks for Ting Internet.

Ting Internet pursues arrangements with MDUs in Ting towns, including arrangements where Ting fiber Internet is an included amenity for residents.
