Known for its world-class customer support and dedication to the communities in which it operates, Ting already provides lightning-fast, low latency fiber internet for Colorado residents and businesses across Centennial, Colorado Springs, and the Western Slope. With Ting’s symmetrical residential internet plans starting at $89 per month, Thornton residents can enjoy fiber internet speeds of up to 2,000 megabits per second (Mbps). 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.

“Investing in fiber internet isn’t just about faster downloads, it’s about building regional economic vitality. A fiber network in Thornton means long-term economic opportunities and resilience that will benefit both residents and businesses for years to come,” said Deb Walker, Community Engagement and Public Affairs Manager, Ting. “Ting is proud to help build a brighter, more prosperous future for Thornton by bringing our 2-gig fiber internet and unparalleled customer service to the city.”

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

“For years, people in the city of Thornton have told us they want options and competition for high-speed broadband services in our city.
