Ting and the City of Centennial recently recognized the providing of internet services in the Willow Creek Subdivision, with a ceremony recognizing Ike Herman, one of the first consumers to get fast internet service from Ting. The ceremony was in Herman’s front yard on East Jamison Circle South.
Construction of a fiber network in Centennial began in late 2017 in Willow Creek, filings 1 and 2. It also has been underway in Walnut Hills and Hunter Hills Subdivisions. The goal of Ting and the city is to provide internet service to all of Centennial. Construction of the fiber “ring” around the city is ongoing.
The master of ceremony for the event was Mark Gotto, Centennial City manager for Ting. Gotto noted that many people “are hungry” for fast internet service and said that supplying fast gigabit service had taken “lots of hard work and ingenuity.” He recognized two Ting employees, Michael Garcia and Ryan Johnson, for their efforts.
Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko also spoke at the ceremony, noting that city officials “were excited” when approached by Ting about providing service. Getting the service in place has been getting “the right people in place at the right time,” she said. Piko thanked Ting and said the city was “ready for it to start up.”
Bob Golden, president and chief executive officer of South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, said that his organization is “lucky to be in a very innovative city.” He characterized the relationship between the chamber and Ting as “a great partnership.”
Herman also spoke and said that the advent of fast internet service “is very forward thinking.”
