Ziply® Fiber brings two unique offerings to Sandpoint with launch of ultra-high-speed fiber-optic internet network

Five times the Speed: Company’s 5-gig residential internet is 5x faster than any competitor

 Half the Price: $20/mo for 50Mbps fiber internet is half the cost of competitive fiber

Kirkland, Wash. (May 2, 2022) – Ziply® Fiber announced today that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Sandpoint, Idaho, enabling its popular “Gig-speed” service and its industry leading 5-gig and 2-gig residential services to more than 1,200 addresses throughout the city, with another 2,000 coming online in the next two weeks, and 3,200 more on the way after that. With multi-gig services available, this launch not only makes Ziply Fiber the fastest internet provider in Sandpoint, but also it makes Sandpoint one of the fastest cities in the nation for household internet speeds, on par with if not faster than most major metropolitan areas.

Residents who don’t need five times the speed of the fastest competitive connection available in the city may prefer the Fiber 50/50 plan from Ziply Fiber, which at $20/mo is half the price of comparable fiber speeds available in the city, with no annual contract required. This service launch is one piece of how Ziply Fiber is working to bridge the digital divide that exists between large metro areas and many suburbs and rural communities.

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 ultra-fast service requires no annual contracts and has no data caps for residential users. The company also is offering free installation, no credit checks and the first month of internet service for free for new customers.

“We are proud to bring faster speeds, more capacity and better pricing to the people of Sandpoint,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “We know that access to reliable, fast broadband is essential to modern life, and we’re thrilled we can offer more choice of providers for the people and businesses who call this great city home.”

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 Sandpoint is part of Ziply Fiber’s commitment to invest more than $500 million 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

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.
