Kirkland, Washington (November 1, 2023) – Ziply® Fiber, today announced the launch of America’s Fastest Internet – a 50 Gig symmetrical fiber plan available today for installation in single-family homes across the company’s nearly one million fiber enabled addresses throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
“Nearly every customer I’ve spoken with cares about two things when it comes to their Internet - great speed and a reliable service for all they do online from the home,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. "Whether they choose our new 50 Gig service tier or any other fiber plan, customers can feel confident they’re on the best and fastest network available, regardless of speed tier they choose. The future is fiber, and for folks in the Northwest, that is Ziply Fiber.”
Today’s announcement continues Ziply Fiber’s culture of industry leadership and innovation. It was one of the first ISPs in the nation to deliver 5 Gig service at scale in 2022. It then became the fastest residential ISP in the Northwest with the introduction of symmetrical 10 Gig fiber service in 2023. All speed tiers are built on the company’s 100 percent fiber, multi-hundred Gig network, managed around the clock to ensure no peak time slowdowns, lag or buffering that can occur on other providers’ networks.
While some may need 50 Gig today, this speed tier is also a nod to the future. Investments that are funding fiber-based deployments are helping ensure this infrastructure can serve communities for generations to come.
According to Elizabeth Alba, City Manager for Sunnyside, Wash., a town of approximately 16,000, “The introduction of a fiber-optic network, now with speeds up to 50 Gig, closes the digital divide here in Sunnyside and ensures we have the broadband infrastructure necessary to support economic growth for decades to come.”
