Kirkland, Washington (June 20, 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 Walla Walla, Washington which will serve thousands of homes and businesses across the city. Fiber internet is now ready for service to nearly 3,000 addresses in Walla Walla today with thousands of additional addresses coming online in the weeks to come.
