Ziply Fiber makes Yakima, Washington its 100th community in rapid Northwest fiber network expansion

Company is first to bring expansive residential fiber internet to “The Heart of Central Washington”; First neighborhoods ready for fiber internet service today

Kirkland, Washington (March 16, 2023) Ziply® Fiber today announced that it has begun construction of a new, ultra-high-speed, 100-percent fiber-optic network in Yakima, Washington. Yakima becomes the 100th new fiber build across the company’s four-state footprint of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. When network construction is complete, tens of thousands of addresses in Yakima will have access to Ziply’s popular “Gig-speed” service and its industry leading 5-gig and 2-gig residential services.

Fiber internet service is available today for the first residents and businesses in Yakima, with additional neighborhoods becoming available in the coming weeks. Residents and business owners can check for fiber availability at and sign up to be alerted when service is available at their location. With multi-gig services being built, Yakima will be among the fastest cities in the nation for household internet speeds, on par with if not faster than most major metropolitan areas.

“Ziply Fiber is committed to bringing ultra-fast, reliable fiber internet to people and businesses throughout the Northwest and I’m very proud that we’re going to bring the people of Yakima the best-connected experience possible,” said Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber. “We are thrilled Yakima is our 100th new fiber community, especially because it is one of the areas of our state that has been underserved when it comes to high-speed internet access for far too long.”

“Connectivity is absolutely essential today,” said Yakima City Manager Bob Harrison. “Being able to access content easily and quickly is key to running a successful business, providing quality educational experiences, enjoying entertainment opportunities and so much more in our everyday lives. The City of Yakima welcomes Ziply to our community and the contribution it will make to moving Yakima forward.”
