SUMAS, Wash. — Ziply Fiber announced today, June 27th, that it has enabled a high-speed fiber-optic network in Sumas. As a result, residents now have an option for accessing the internet at speeds historically available only in larger metropolitan areas.

According to today’s press release, 5-gig and 2-gig residential service is now available to over 480 addresses throughout the city.

With multi-gig services available, this launch not only makes Ziply Fiber the fastest internet provider in Sumas, but it also makes Sumas one of the fastest cities in the nation for household internet speeds, on par with if not faster than most major metropolitan areas.Ziply Fiber press release (June 27, 2022)

    Why not Ferndale?

    My question exactly!

    No Semiahmoo. Interesting. My confidence in Ziply (their regular phone service) has never been high. But I hope for everyone’s sake they can deliver with fiber and give Comcast some serious competition.

    Ferndale is waiting to be built out and is due to start this year. I am an inspector for these builds and have been involved in the projects.
