Residents who sign up in July can now get the reliability of fiber internet for as little as $10/month for the first three months
Kirkland, Washington (July 5, 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 Union Gap, Washington. The launch will immediately enable Ziply’s popular “Gig-speed” service and its industry-leading 10 Gig, 5 Gig and 2 Gig residential services to nearly 400 addresses throughout the city, with more on the way.
When network construction is complete, nearly 600 homes and business will have access to Ziply Fiber’s fiber-optic network. With multi-gig services available, this launch not only makes Ziply Fiber the fastest internet provider in the city, but it also means Union Gap 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.
“Union Gap is well known as the old town with new ideas, which is why access to reliable, high-speed internet is an absolute must here,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “A great reliable fiber internet connection allows new ideas to thrive, drives employment opportunities and economic growth, and gives people the ability to do so much more than older technology can accommodate.”
