Ting <3 fiber Internet
We love fiber internet because it’s the only way of transmitting data that’s future-proof. The fiber technology we have now should last us for life!
We love fiber Internet. We also believe that fiber internet and the future are a perfect match. Why? Oh boy, we don’t even know where to start. Just kidding! We totally know where to start.
It’s really, really fast
It’s no secret that if you want the fastest internet, you need to go with fiber. Ting Internet is up to 100 times faster than the average cable connection. It’s important to understand that there’s more to love than just peak numbers, though. Fiber internet is high bandwidth—think of it as having lots of space for information to flow. That means that your internet will always be fast, because, unlike cable, you don’t have to worry about congestion when more people in your house, or even in your neighborhood, are online. This also ties into why fiber internet and the future will definitely be pals. But more on that later.
Since it uses coaxial cables, cable internet is susceptible to electrical interference and is often negatively affected by bad weather. Fiber internet does not have these issues, so you don’t have to worry about losing your internet connection during a thunderstorm. When it comes to durability, this is one concern some have had about fiber internet and the future. Well, it may surprise you to learn that the tensile strength of optical fiber is actually greater than that of copper. As for overall longevity—30 years after fiber began to be laid in earnest, it’s clear that it is at least as durable as copper. With advances in manufacturing, it’s likely to be even more so.
It increases property value
This may sound like a claim dreamed up by some sneaky marketing team, but studies actually back this statistic up. Once such study specifies that your home's value can be increased by up to 3.1% by having a fiber internet connection. Similarly, landlords that include fiber internet connections on their properties can command higher rent.
It supports innovation and new opportunities
Today, there are apps and SaaS (software-as-a-service) solutions with capabilities we could not have imagined just a few years ago. There are also productivity tools that allow us to cowork with colleagues across the globe and control hardware and software remotely, all in real time. The thing is, these require fast, reliable, high bandwidth internet. You guessed it: fiber fits the bill perfectly.
It’s future proof
We know—this sounds like a term invented by a marketing department in the 1980s trying to leverage the success of “Back to the Future.” However, this is a real concept. And while very few technologies are truly future proof, fiber optic cable is a notable exception. Perhaps the easiest way to illustrate its importance is looking at technology that is not future proof: cable internet. Due to its bandwidth and reliability constraints, the time is fast approaching when it simply won’t be able to keep up with our higher bandwidth demands. Conversely, the maximum bandwidth and speed capabilities of fiber is so far beyond what we currently need, connections like Ting Internet will easily keep up with our needs for many years to come. In short, when it comes to fiber internet and the future, fiber internet is the future
You’ll <3 fiber internet from Ting
So by now you’ve looked at a future with fiber internet, and the future looks bright. But why Ting fiber internet? Well, Ting offers a symmetrical gigabit connection—both your upload and download speeds will be up to 1000 Mbps (that’s really fast). And thanks to a dedicated connection that goes straight to your router, you’ll get speeds closer to the maximum. If you ask our customers, though, they’re just as likely to talk about our knowledgeable customer support team (all human, no robots or phone trees) and our commitment to enriching the communities that welcome us. Ready for an upgrade to future-proof internet? See if Ting is in your neighborhood.
