Kirkland, Washington (September 29, 2023) – Ziply® Fiber, the fastest internet service provider in the Northwest, today announced that it has begun construction of a new, ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network in Grandview, Washington, which will serve more than 1,300 homes and businesses across the city. Fiber internet – with speeds from 100 Mbps to as fast as 10 Gig – is now ready for service to more than 500 addresses in Grandview with the remaining coming online in the next few weeks. Residential customers can switch to fiber internet for as little as $20 per month.
“We are all incredibly happy to have Ziply Fiber in Grandview,” said Grandview Mayor Gloria Mendoza. “Having choices for internet providers is excellent for our residents. Internet access is essential for us to interact with our loved ones, pursue education, shop and network. Having access to the internet has become a basic requirement in our communities. We anticipate a long-term partnership with Ziply Fiber.”
Residents and business owners can check for fiber availability at Ziplyfiber.com and sign up to be alerted when service is available at their location. With multi-gig services being built, Grandview will have the fastest household internet speeds in the Northwest and be among the fastest cities in the nation, even faster than most major metropolitan areas.
“Grandview is a thriving, wonderful community that we are so proud to now be a part of,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “It’s been exciting to see the positive reception we’ve received from residents and businesses alike as we’ve continued to expand our presence and ultra-fast fiber network to more and more of Yakima County.”
