Gigabit fiber and the Ting difference

Gigabit fiber optic internet is your internet experience the way it's meant to be - "light-speed" fast, stable and robust enough to handle all the devices and utilities you'll add to it into the future.

Why fiber wins

"Light-speed" fast

Gigabit fiber gives you the speed to do anything you've normally done with your internet service and opens the door to things that might have been wishful thinking in the past. Browsing, gaming, streaming, and more are all covered with "light-speed" fast fiber. Ting Internet is symmetrical, so your uploads move as fast as your downloads. This means you can upload big files while still enjoying uninterrupted streaming and downloading.

But for many, the benefit is in the bandwidth. The bandwidth of your service can be thought of as the width of a pipe: the wider the pipe, the more traffic can simultaneously move back and forth. Having 1 Gigabit of bandwidth means that everyone in the house can do their thing without devices clashing and fighting for bandwidth. In every town, our local networks are built with bandwidth to spare. Many ISPs use the excuse of "peak hours" for slow periods, especially during evenings. With Ting's fiber networks, your connections are fast all day. Fiber internet works differently than old-school copper, and it's a difference you can feel.


Gigabit fiber brings impressive speeds and network stability, but it also gives you the room to grow that copper can't keep up with. As we offload more of our home utilities to our internet service—TV streaming, phones, etc.—it's crucial to have a connection capable of handling everything. With fiber internet, you can be confident that your service can handle the demands of the future.


Having fiber internet available at your home is an investment. Much like upgrading your home's interior or exterior features, having fiber internet offers a selling point that other homes may not have. Future owners can have service activated by Ting quickly, without any complex installation, which means less details to worry about when moving.

Not every aspect of our home networks have caught up with the speeds fiber can provide yet. Wi-Fi still delivers less speed than a wired connection, but as Wi-Fi standards improve, your wireless devices can take advantage of the speeds that gigabit fiber provides.

Ting Internet is Gigabit Fiber

Gigabit fiber is the right way to experience the internet, whether you're tech-savvy or tech-timid. With better network stability, speed, and bandwidth, Ting fiber lets you do whatever you need to do online, with the assurance that your service will keep up with future demands.
