Ting, a division of Tucows (NASDAQ:TCX) (TSX:TC) announced that Fuquay-Varina will be the next to town to get fast fiber internet from Ting.

Ting is one of the providers in the United States that is committed to net neutrality and the open internet. Tucows is a provider of network access, domain names and various other internet services.

As quoted in the press release:

Ting Internet continues its commitment to bringing dedicated symmetrical gigabit fiber optic Internet infrastructure and the fastest Internet access to forward thinking towns and cities that need and want it.

“Fuquay-Varina is one of the fastest growing towns in North Carolina. High-speed fiber optic broadband is the key to modern communications, economic growth, and access to a world of opportunities. Having Ting bring ‘crazy fast fiber Internet’ to Fuquay-Varina is very positive for our fast-growing town. It provides greater choices for citizens to connect to the Internet and helps the town prepare for the future,” said Mayor John W. Byrne.

Ting’s expansion into Fuquay-Varina was driven in large part by interest from residents, and by their proactive City government.

“Over the past 15 months, the Town of Fuquay-Varina has been building a fiber network to ensure that town facilities have sufficient network capacity to meet needs now and in the future,” said Town Manager Adam Mitchell. “Taking a proactive approach to planning and investing in fiber infrastructure has made the Town attractive to service providers. We are excited that Ting is coming to Fuquay-Varina.”

“I regularly meet residents from Fuquay-Varina at Ting events in Holly Springs. They are frustrated with their existing Internet options and often ask if Ting will expand to serve Fuquay-Varina,” said Todd Rubin, Area Manager for Ting. “Likewise, Fuquay-Varina has everything we love about a town. It’s smart, it’s growing, there’s a progressive, entrepreneurial spirit here. We can’t wait to get started.”

Ting has an established market in neighboring Holly Springs, NC, so building a network in Fuquay-Varina will leverage the existing operation and enable us to break ground much faster than might otherwise be possible.

Ting expects to light the first customer on its crazy fast fiber network in Fuquay-Varina before the end of the year.
