Lakeside becomes Northwest’s newest “Gig-Speed City” thanks to launch of Ziply™ Fiber’s ultra-high-speed fiber-optic internet network

Kirkland, Wash.

In total, more than 1,600 addresses will have access to Ziply Fiber’s network when network construction is complete. Ziply Fiber is bridging the digital divide that exists between large metro areas and many suburbs and rural communities.

“Lakeside is such a beautiful community, it’s easy to see why people choose to call it home, and that’s exactly why we’re excited to enable the homes and businesses here to finally have the kind of fast, reliable connectivity they deserve,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “We’ve always believed that you don’t need to live in a big city to have great internet and today’s launch of our fiber-optic service brings us another step closer in our mission of building the fastest, most advanced internet network available in the Northwest.”
