Ting Internet to bring gigabit fiber Internet to Wake Forest, NC
Building on Ting Internet’s success in Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina, Ting expands its fiber footprint in North Carolina.
February 5, 2019 – Wake Forest, NC Ting, a division of Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC) is pleased to announce that Wake Forest will be the next town to get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting. Residents can pre-order now.
With established markets and operations in nearby Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina, Ting’s expansion into Wake Forest will benefit from its local brand strength and operational synergies. Once completed, it will also add approximately 10,000 serviceable addresses to Ting’s North Carolina footprint.
Ting Internet’s mission is to bring true gigabit fiber Internet with an unparalleled customer experience to cities and towns across America. Ting is building the infrastructure of the future: a gigabit fiber network extending to every customer. That means every home or business address connected to the Ting fiber network has its own fiber optic connection into the premises, enabling every user in a home or businesses to experience lightning fast, low latency, highly reliable Internet access.
“Increasingly, we see that cities and municipalities are looking for better Internet options for their residents and businesses because the incumbents aren’t stepping up,” said Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. “Fiber is the technology that will power smart cities for the next hundred years.”
In 2015, Ting announced it would bring fiber Internet to Holly Springs, NC, and in 2018 Ting named Fuquay-Varina as the next “Ting Town” in the greater Raleigh, NC area. The charming town of Wake Forest will be the third Ting Internet town in North Carolina, and the seventh in the country.
“Ting Internet is proud to be expanding into the Town of Wake Forest, which has so many of the qualities we look for in a Ting Town,” added Noss. “It’s a future-focused community with an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong focus on education and progress. It’s a place where community leaders value the importance of fiber infrastructure and all the benefits it will bring to their constituents.”
Indeed, Ting’s build in Wake Forest would not be possible without the leadership and enthusiasm of the Town.
“Wake Forest is a growing community comprised of highly-educated, globally-connected residents that rely on high-speed communication to meet their ever-changing needs,” said Wake Forest Mayor, Vivian Jones. “We are extremely excited to welcome Ting to Wake Forest and look forward to experiencing the crazy fast speed and reliability fiber optic service delivers.”
Ting expects to light its first customers in Wake Forest this summer.
