KIRKLAND, Wash. – Ziply Fiber – which acquired the Northwest operations of Frontier Communications in May 2020 and immediately began investing an additional $500 million to improve its network and services and has been busy building new fiber connectivity to dozens of cities and towns throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana – today announced the launch of its Agent Channel Program, a major step forward in its Channel strategy across its four-state region. The company marked the occasion by signing agreements with more than 20 Channel partners, including most of the industry's largest Master Agents, which will allow the company to rapidly expand its commercial services as it also rapidly expands its fiber network.
The company already has built and turned-up fiber in more than a dozen cities that previously didn't have access, has five more cities in active builds, and plans to announce dozens more for 2021 launches in the coming weeks. With more than 4.2 million feet of new fiber deployed in the last few months, Ziply Fiber is designing its modern fiber network – which services more than 210 regional cities and towns today and is adding more every month – to meet the internet, data and voice needs of today's world, while ensuring the capacity to handle whatever businesses need both today and into the future.
