Arlington becomes Washington’s newest “Multi-Gig City” with fastest household internet in the Northwest thanks to launch of Ziply™ Fiber’s ultra-high-speed fiber-optic internet network

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. (March 31, 2022) – Ziply™ Fiber announced today that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Arlington, Washington, enabling its popular “Gig-speed,” or Gigabit fiber connectivity, as well as its industry-leading 5-gig and 2-gig residential services to nearly 1,500 addresses throughout the city and with thousands more on the way. With multi-gig services available, this launch makes Arlington 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.

In total, nearly 6,000 Arlington residences and businesses will have network access when Ziply Fiber’s network construction is complete. This build is one piece of how Ziply Fiber is bridging the digital divide that exists between large metro areas and many suburbs and rural communities. 

Snohomish County Councilmembers Nate Nehring and Sam Low have been big advocates for the expansion of fiber to cities in the county, including Arlington.

“I am very excited about the expansion of top-quality, high-speed internet service in Arlington,” said Councilmember Nehring. “Ziply has been a great community partner and we look forward to continuing to partner with them to improve internet access in Snohomish County.”

Councilmember Low added, “Broadband access is a significant need in our rural areas. Ziply has been instrumental in working with the County and our communities to help find solutions.”

Ziply Fiber’s service launch comes at a time when more and more families and businesses are looking for fast and reliable internet to support the online needs of daily life in today’s world. And as always, there are no data caps or annual contracts required for residential users.

“Our team at Ziply Fiber is honored to continue our network expansion in Arlington,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “We are working hard to bring revolutionary internet speeds to areas in the Northwest that need it the most, which is why we’re so excited to make Arlington our newest multi-gig city.”

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 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

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

The work in Arlington 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 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.

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

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.
