Ting enhances its reach into Colorado with Thornton's 2 Gbps fiber broadband debut

Feb. 22, 2024
Residents and businesses gain a new choice for a high-bandwidth service.

Ting Internet is lighting high-speed, 2 Gbps fiber internet service to Thornton, Colorado, giving consumers and businesses a new competitive broadband service option. 

Colorado has been a critical target for Ting. Today, the service provider offers fiber broadband service in Centennial, Colorado Springs, and the Western Slope. With Ting's symmetrical residential internet plans starting at $89 per month, Thornton residents can enjoy up to 2 Gbps fiber internet speeds.

Ting also offers fully customizable plans tailored to the needs of businesses, enterprises, homeowners’ associations, and multi-family dwellings, which can be created in collaboration with Ting’s enterprise team.

As a city-wide build, Ting plans to provide service to nearly 60,000 addresses, ensuring that residents across the city can access its fiber internet service. As part of the agreement, Ting has committed to expanding the city’s network infrastructure by 50,000 ft and will also provide free Wi-Fi service to at least four public parks. 

Thornton’s Mayor Jan Kulmann hailed the competitive provider’s entrance into the city to give residents and businesses service choices.

“For years, people in Thornton have told us they want options and competition for high-speed broadband services in our city,” Kulmann said. “We could not be happier that we agreed with Ting to come in and provide their 2-gigabit service to the residents and businesses in Thornton.”

The provider anticipates network construction to start in March of this year, with internet service becoming available in initial neighborhoods by June 2024. Ting expects to complete construction by the end of 2028. Another positive outcome of the fiber build is it will also create new jobs in the community over the next year, all of which will be open to Thornton residents.
