Kirkland, Washington (January 24, 2024) – Ziply® Fiber, home to America’s Fastest Internet, today announced that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Brewster, Washington, thanks in-part to a public/private partnership with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). The launch will enable fiber internet – with speeds ranging from 100 Mbps to America’s fastest home internet at 50 Gig – to more than 800 addresses throughout the city when network construction is complete. The first 200 addresses are ready for service today, with the remaining addresses going live across the city over the next several weeks. This means Brewster now has the fastest household internet speeds in the nation.
