Kirkland, Wash. (September 22, 2023) – Ziply® Fiber, the fastest internet service provider in the Northwest, announced today that its ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network is now ready for service in Republic, Washington. The launch will enable fiber internet – with speeds from 100 Mbps to as fast as 10 Gig – to more than 450 addresses throughout the city, with more than 350 of those addresses ready for service today.
With multi-gig services available, this launch not only makes Ziply Fiber the fastest internet provider in the city, but it also makes Republic one of the fastest cities in the nation for household internet speeds, on par with, if not faster than most major metropolitan areas.
“The residents of Republic deserve the best possible internet out there, and today, with our industry leading service launch, we’re excited to provide it to them,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “There is a clear option for internet these days – and that’s multi-gig fiber. Ziply Fiber has been dedicated to expanding our fiber footprint across the Northwest, bringing our friends and families in the communities the best possible connection for decades to come.”
Fiber internet, unlike other options like cable or satellite, provides the bandwidth and capacity to keep entire families streaming without interruption. Fiber provides symmetrical upload and download speeds and lower latency to easily power video conferencing and online gaming without lag and delivers the reliability to empower residents and businesses for decades.
Ziply Fiber offers many different service options for residents, including:
• FREE or reduced cost monthly internet service for qualified people as part of the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). To learn more about ACP, please visit ziplyfiber.com/internet/community-discounts.
• The entry level Fiber 100/100 plan, which provides all the reliability of fiber at great value for just $20/month.
• All residential plans come with no data caps and no annual contracts.
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 ziplyfiber.com/new-fiber-locations/washington/republic
. 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. If residents notice something has been missed the company wants to know about it and asks that details be shared at ziplyfiber.com/new-fiber-locations/construction-process/construction-feedback
The work in Republic 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 ziplyfiber.com
