Ting says it will bring gigabit Internet access service to the greater Sandpoint, Idaho market. Sandpoint is a town of about 7,400 people, located in the northern part of the state, located on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille.
Ting already serves Holly Springs, N.C.; Charlottesville, Va. and Westminster, Md. and appears willing to launch high speed Internet access service in other towns as well.
Ting sells symmetrical 1-Gbps Internet access service for about $90 a month. In Sandpoint, Ting will be competing with Northland Communications, which offers Internet access at 24 Mbps, and CenturyLink, which sells service at up to 40 Mbps.
