Ziply™ Fiber’s ultra-high-speed fiber-optic internet network
ready for service in Redmond Ridge
Gig-speed fiber internet and fiber-based phone services now available for hundreds of residences and businesses within the community
Kirkland, Wash. (December 1, 2021) – Ziply™ Fiber today announced that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Redmond Ridge, enabling “Gig-speed”, or Gigabit fiber connectivity to hundreds of residences and local shops and businesses within the community for the first time ever. The company will continue its work building the fastest residential internet available in the community over the next several weeks. By the time the company’s construction is complete, Ziply Fiber will have built fiber connectivity to hundreds of additional locations across the community, giving residents access to the company’s ultra-fast fiber internet and phone services.
“Ziply Fiber is proud to launch “gig-speed” fiber connectivity in Redmond Ridge and help bring a fast and reliable network to residences and businesses within this beautiful community,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “Whether you chose to live in this community because of the people, the architecture, or the endless recreation, we also know that fast, reliable connection to family and friends via the internet is something everyone expects.”
With no data caps and no annual contracts for residential users, Ziply Fiber’s service launch comes at a time when more and more people are looking for fast and reliable internet to support the online needs of daily life in today’s world. Those 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 ziplyfiber.com/newfiber.
The work in Redmond Ridge is part of Ziply Fiber’s commitment to invest more than $500 million over the next two to three years 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 ziplyfiber.com.
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.
