Ting Internet announced today that its highly sought after fiber internet service is now available in Culver City, and that is is introducing a community program to help and bridge the ‘digital divide.’ Unlike traditional cable internet service, fiber networks carry higher bandwidth and are less prone to signal interference, ultimately providing an elevated and seamless user experience. With the rise in remote work and learning, reliable internet has never been as important.
“We are thrilled to light up our Ting network here in Culver City,” said Jennifer Lasky, Marketing Manager, Ting Internet. “We know first-hand the benefits that reliable internet can bring to a community. Ting is the first fiber option in Culver City and this infrastructure will be a vital advancement for the community.”
As part of the Culver City launch, Ting is introducing a community program designed to combat the local digital divide. This program was developed in partnership with the Culver City municipal team and will provide free internet access to affordable housing units across 17 properties in the city.
“We fundamentally believe that the internet should be accessible to everyone, regardless of circumstance,” said Monica Webb, Head of Market Development, Ting Internet. “This is exactly why we include a digital divide program in every community we work in. While we’re thrilled to be announcing our presence in Culver City, we are equally delighted to announce that we are working with the city to provide just over 300 affordable housing units with Ting Internet, at no cost to them.”
Ting’s mission is to bring the speed and reliability of true gigabit fiber-optic internet, opening new opportunities for communities across the United States. There are currently four markets across California with access to Ting Internet: Culver City, Encinitas, Fullerton and Solana Beach.
Ting will continue to expand its serviceable neighborhoods in Culver City throughout the rest of 2021. Locals can now visit ting.com/culvercity to get more information and search their address to either order or pre-order Ting Internet.
Pricing for Ting’s symmetrical gigabit fiber internet starts at $89 per month for home internet service and $139 per month for business gigabit internet. Enterprise internet service levels, installations and pricing are customized to business needs and can be discussed with the Ting Internet Enterprise team.
