Ziply launches 2Gbps, 5Gbps fibre in Washington, Oregon and Idaho

26 Jan 2022

Ziply Fiber has announced that – after an initial rollout in Kirkland, Washington last month – it has begun offering 2Gbps and 5Gbps residential fibre connectivity to nearly 170,000 residential customer addresses in 60 cities and towns across Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The upgrade is set to go live in Montana later in 1Q22, and by mid-year these multi-gig residential services will be available to customers situated within most of the company’s four-state fibre footprint.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Ziply was created in May 2020 when private investment firm Searchlight Capital Partners completed the USD1.352 billion acquisition of the Northwest operations and assets of Frontier Communications (‘Northwest Fiber’). The deal was carried out in partnership with WaveDivision Capital (WDC), the Public Sector Pension Investment Board, British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI) and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments).
