Ziply Fiber's FTTP broadband rollout reaches 100 communities

March 27, 2023
The addition of Yakima, WA brings to 100 the number of communities on Ziply’s FTTP deployment list across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana, the four states in which it operates.

Fiber broadband provider Ziply Fiber recently announced that it has added Yakima, WA, to its fiber to the premises (FTTP) footprint.

The addition of Yakima brings to 100 the number of communities on Ziply’s FTTP deployment list across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana, the four states in which it operates.

While FTTP deployment is ongoing in Yakima, residents and businesses certain neighborhoods in the community can already order services. Residential service tiers include 5-Gbps and 2-Gbps tiers.

Ziply’s primary service offerings are Fiber Internet and phone for residential customers, Business Fiber Internet and Ziply Voice services for small businesses, and a variety of internet, networking, and voice offerings for larger enterprise customers.

“Connectivity is absolutely essential today,” said Yakima City Manager Bob Harrison. “Being able to access content easily and quickly is key to running a successful business, providing quality educational experiences, enjoying entertainment opportunities and so much more in our everyday lives. The City of Yakima welcomes Ziply to our community and the contribution it will make to moving Yakima forward.”

Ziply was created in 2020, when WaveDivision Capital, LLC, bought Frontier’s assets in the four states. Since then, the company has aggressively deployed FTTP across its 250,000-square-mile footprint.
