Ting to offer gigabit fiber Internet in Fullerton, CA

Building on Ting Internet’s success in markets across the US, Ting Internet expands its service footprint to California in partnership with SiFi Networks.

FULLERTON, Cali., April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ting, a division of Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC) is pleased to announce that Fullerton, CA will be the next town to get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting. Residents can pre-order now at ting.com/fullerton.

Ting will provide service in Fullerton through a partnership with SiFi networks, an international fiber-optic network developer. This partnership model separates the construction, ownership and operation of fiber infrastructure from the provisioning of Internet service and customer support. With SiFi Networks taking on the former, Ting can scale more quickly and focus on its core business strengths of providing ultra-fast, low latency Internet service with a top-rated customer experience.

Ting will be one of two Internet service partners on SiFi’s network. Once completed, the Fullerton build will add just over 50,000 shared serviceable addresses to Ting’s potential addressable market.

“Fullerton is a solid market for us, with a strong, dense and diverse population of families along with colleges, beautiful public spaces, and businesses big and small,” said Elliot Noss, Tucows’ CEO. “Fullerton will be great for our business. We are pleased to embark on a California footprint, to test the Ting brand and customer experience through direct competition, and to see alternative models emerging in the ongoing fiberization of America.”

Ting is part of Tucows, a quietly, wildly successful Internet company founded in 1993 that built its reputation providing products people really want, and an outstanding customer experience. Ting builds, operates, and provides service on fiber networks in select markets across the US, and has differentiated itself from its competition by offering crazy fast symmetrical gigabit fiber Internet access, a deep local presence, and genuinely human customer support. Fullerton will be Ting’s eighth market, and first in southern California.

Ting expects to light its first customers in Fullerton towards the end of this year.

Pre-orders are open for Fullerton

Fullerton residents can pre-order Ting crazy fast fiber Internet now at ting.com/fullerton. A one-time $9 pre-order is returned as a credit on a customer’s first Ting bill. Pre-ordering secures the best possible break on start-up costs on Ting gigabit service, including the full cost of installation.

Ting Internet offers symmetrical gigabit fiber Internet for residential, small business, and enterprise customers. Home gigabit Internet costs $79 a month. Business gigabit Internet costs $139 a month. Enterprise Internet service levels, installations and pricing vary and can be discussed with the Fullerton Enterprise team.
