Kirkland, Wash. (Jan 6, 2021) – Ziply™ Fiber today announced that it had completed a critical phase of the fiber-optic network build-out in Detroit, Oregon, that will for the first time deliver gig-speed fiber internet and an all-new, state-of-the-art network to area residents and businesses after the massive fires and destruction in the area last year. Ziply Fiber was on the scene from the beginning of the response efforts in Detroit, delivering free WiFi, charging stations, and restoring phone service within hours. The company has replaced the old copper lines with an all-new fiber network, delivering gig-speed internet to this rural community in need, beginning Wed, Jan 6. More than 40 percent of residential and business addresses will be ready for fiber service immediately. The remainder is scheduled for completion early this year.

“As Detroit rebuilds after a devastating year, and as we replace and upgrade the infrastructure of our own that was severely damaged by the fires, Ziply Fiber is proud to be here helping to serve a vital need for this area.
