Ting Internet is lighting up Greenwood Village with fiber

Cherry Creek Food Hall and Brewery, formerly The Grange, at 6575 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard, was the sight of a March 13 lighting up kick-off event celebrating the arrival of Ting Internet’s fiber-to-the-premises in the City of Greenwood Village. The service will cost GV residents who sign up $89/month, guaranteed for five years. To help facilitate the construction, the city has pledged a financial contribution of up to $5 million to Ting, tied to the company meeting promised construction deadlines.

Ann Nelson, Tom Stahl, Ting Chief Network Officer and EVP Jason Smith, Dave Kerber and Anne Ingebretsen, Greenwood Village City Council members in attendance to celebrate the Ting Lighting.

More than a dozen Ting staffmembers were there to answer questions and celebrate. They were led by Jason Smith, chief network officer and executive vice-president of operations, along with C. J. Enrenreich, Senior Director, Construction Operations, who travelled from North Carolina for the event. The Ting team joined members of the GV City Council, along with current and future Ting customers for the party that included swag bags that held a plastic water bottle, compact blanket, and even a little chocolate candy with Ting imprinted on it. Jeff Carter, Cherry Creek Food Hall general manager, oversaw the ample and delicious spread of choices from the food hall, including French desserts, by Alyce In Flourland.

Deb Walker, Ting’s regional community engagement and public affairs manager, told us, “We are here tonight celebrating the launch of Ting Internet in Greenwood Village. The community is really excited for us to be here.” 

We asked Deb what options were available for new Ting customers who currently have cable internet and television service but want to upgrade to fiber for their internet. Deb explained, “We can help people…continue to get their TV through streaming, which comes through the internet. We are singularly focused on providing reliable, exceptionally fast internet and all the rest of that can follow.” She reminded us that Ting is currently promising 2Gbps of symmetrical service (upload and download) to its customers.

Among the current and future Ting customers who joined the festivities were Joan and Barry Blasberg. Their Ting service is up and running at their home near Belleview Avenue and Yosemite Street. Barry is an electrical engineer who understands the technology well and is very satisfied with Ting’s service. He told us that Ting has delivered upload and download speeds of over 2Gbps, as promised, but he pointed out that many current computers can’t yet process that much speed. One might say that’s why Ting calls its service, “future-proof,” we pointed out. The other aspect of Ting service that Barry and Joan appreciate is that the company offers prompt, knowledgeable 24/7 customer service representatives and the ones they have reached have all been U.S.-based.

Other GV residents, including Brian and Diane Curd, and Renée Zelkind, were also there for the party and to find out more about Ting’s service, which they expect to use when it’s available to them.

Ting’s citywide installation began last fall and will be ongoing until its expected completion in the summer of 2027. The project is being done in three phases. A full schedule and details, including a map, can be found on the city’s website.
