Residents now have immediate access to 5-gig, 2-gig and Gig-speed internet and phone services; specialized small business services also now available
Kirkland, Wash. (April 1, 2022) – Ziply™ Fiber announced today that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Port Orford, Oregon, enabling its popular “Gig-speed,” or Gigabit fiber connectivity, and its industry leading 5-gig and 2-gig residential services to more than 1,500 addresses throughout the city. Last year, the company announced plans to bring its 1-Gig service to town, but with its recent introduction of multi-gig services in the Northwest, this launch makes Port Orford one of the fastest cities in the nation when it comes to household internet speeds, on par with if not faster than most major metropolitan areas.
“Just because you live in the oldest town on the Oregon Coast doesn’t mean you should have the oldest internet,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “With today’s launch of not just our gig-speed service but also our multi-gig offerings, we’re making sure Port Orford has the newest and best, and we’re very proud to have invested here to make that happen, and to give people the choice to find the kind of plan that works best for them.”
Ziply Fiber’s announcement comes at a time when more and more families and businesses need high-capacity internet to support the online needs of daily life in today’s world. Ziply Fiber's blazingly-fast service requires no annual contracts and no data caps for residential users.
New and existing customers who wish to check their address for fiber availability, or who would like to sign-up to be alerted when fiber internet is available at their home or business, can register at https://www.ziplyfiber.com/portorford. When fiber is shown as available at their address, Ziply’s existing DSL customers can upgrade by calling 1-866-699-4759.
Ziply Fiber also participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), an FCC benefit program which allows qualified people to receive free or reduced cost monthly internet service. To determine your eligibility and sign up for ACP, please visit https://acpbenefit.org.
Ziply Fiber’s goal is always to leave an area in a condition as good if not better than it was before construction began. If residents notice something has been missed, the company wants to know about it and asks that details be shared at https://ziplyfiber.com/constructioncleanup.
The work in Port Orford is part of Ziply Fiber’s commitment to invest more than $500 million over the next two to three years to build an advanced, 100-percent fiber network to both suburban and rural communities across the Northwest that have been underserved when it comes to internet access. The company has been actively building fiber across the Northwest since June 2020 and has plans to build and deploy new fiber-optic cables, local hubs, new offices, and new hardware to run the network as part of hundreds of additional projects across its 250,000-square-mile footprint.
Ziply Fiber’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 solutions for enterprise customers. The company will continue to support Ziply Internet (DSL) customers, and its TV customers in Washington and Oregon. A full listing of products and services can be found at ziplyfiber.com.
Ziply Fiber is local in the Northwest, headquartered in Kirkland, Washington, and has major offices in Everett, Washington; Beaverton, Oregon; and Hayden, Idaho. Most of Ziply Fiber’s executive team, which consists of former executives from AT&T, CenturyLink, and Wave Broadband, either grew up in the Northwest or have spent the better part of 30 years living here. That local ownership and market familiarity is an important part of the company mindset and culture.
