Ting Internet, a division of Tucows, will bring its fiber internet services to Colorado’s Western Slope, starting with a full city network build in Durango.
Work in Durango is expected to begin in spring, with fiber service rolling out by the end of the year.
Ting will be Durango’s first citywide fiber internet provider. It will provide dedicated bandwidth, higher speeds and more reliability, according to a Tucows news release sent Friday.
“We’ve been proudly operating in Colorado for the past five years and are thrilled to announce that we are expanding our footprint to provide better connectivity throughout Colorado’s Western Slope,” said Jill Szuchmacher, executive vice president, Ting Internet. “Our expertise – both nationwide and especially here within the state – will help us quickly deliver the high speed internet service that Coloradans deserve and help unlock economic development throughout the broader region.”
Ting’s Western Slope expansion is supported in part by its 2020 acquisition of Cedar Holdings Group, a local telecommunications provider that has served Durango since 2001.
Ting also is participating in the broadband provider request for proposal process happening in Cortez, and is in the planning additional builds in cities and towns across the region.
