Kirkland, Wash. (October 4, 2022) – Ziply® Fiber today announced service launches in six cities and areas across Whatcom County and gave construction updates on its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic networks in several other cities in the region. When complete, this work will enable Ziply’s popular “Gig-speed” service and its industry-leading 5-gig and 2-gig residential services to more than 10,000 addresses throughout the county.

Today’s major milestones for fiber internet availability in Whatcom County are:

  • Everson and Nooksack – Ziply Fiber enabled connectivity to more than 600 residences and businesses today, with hundreds more under construction
  • Lynden – Ziply Fiber made approximately 900 locations ready for service today, more than 400 additional locations are scheduled this month and the company has nearly 700 additional addresses under construction
  • Ferndale – Ziply Fiber enabled the fiber network for nearly 150 addresses today and has nearly 200 in active construction and due to be enabled this month. Nearly 1,200 additional locations are planned for the city, with construction set to begin soon
  • Maple Falls and Peaceful Valley – Ziply Fiber made more than 650 locations ready for service today and is actively building another 1,600 locations in the area, which are slated for completion this month
  • Sumas – Ziply Fiber made approximately 400 businesses and residences fiber-ready in June
  • Birch Bay – Ziply Fiber is nearing the point where it soon will be ready to turn-up service to more than 1,300 locations of the nearly 2,500 in its current build plan; an announcement will be made when service is enabled
  • Blaine – Ziply Fiber is building connectivity to more than 2,200 residences and businesses
  • Sandy Point and Neptune Beach Area – Ziply Fiber expects to enable connectivity to more than 500 locations once construction is complete

The company continues to evaluate other locations within the county for additional fiber expansion, some of which may be built through investment directly by Ziply Fiber, and some through civic partnerships and partial grants from state and/or federal agencies who share Ziply’s goal of increasing access to high-speed internet in suburban and rural communities.

“Whatcom County continues to be a major focus for our network upgrades. We’ve been there through the flooding in some of these cities last year and have seen the resilience of the people in this county, and we’re really proud to be working here,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “Enabling fiber in these communities will dramatically improve what businesses and families can do, and I’m really excited with the progress we’re making to bring that to fruition.”

Among the many service options residents can choose from are Ziply Fiber’s most popular Gig-speed plan; its Fiber 50/50 plan, which at $20/month provides all the reliability of fiber at an affordable price with no annual contract requirement; or its ultra-fast, high-capacity 2-gig or 5-gig connections.

Ziply Fiber also participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), an FCC benefit program that allows qualified people to receive FREE or reduced-cost monthly internet service. To learn more about ACP, please visit

Ziply Fiber’s announcement comes at a time when more families and businesses need high-capacity internet to support the online needs of daily life. Ziply Fiber’s ultra-fast service requires no annual contracts and has 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 When fiber is shown as available at their address, Ziply’s existing DSL customers can upgrade by calling 1-866-699-4759.

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 Whatcom County is part of Ziply Fiber’s commitment to invest hundreds of millions of dollars 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’s mindset and culture.
