In each of its markets, the company prides itself on connecting people with resilient fiber internet, reducing the digital divide and becoming an active community partner.

“We are thrilled to bring the first city-wide fiber network to Aurora, allowing us to connect the entire community to the benefits of a network that has been purpose-built for the internet,” said Jill Szuchmacher, Executive Vice President, Ting Internet. “Fiber internet provides opportunities for step-change economic development and technological resilience in communities, both of which will benefit local residents and businesses for decades to come.”

Construction on Ting’s fiber network is expected to begin early this summer, with initial internet access to start rolling out by the end of the year. During the early phases of infrastructure deployment, Ting will focus its efforts on establishing a local presence, making vital connections with enterprises within the community, and rounding out its local Aurora team.

“We heard for years from residents that they want more choice in internet providers,” said Francoise Bergan, Mayor Pro-Tem of Aurora. “With Ting coming to Aurora, customers will have choice and competition, which is always a winning formula.”
