Ziply Fiber Launches Agent Channel Program

Ziply Fiber announced the launch of its Agent Channel Program, a major step 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 expand its commercial services as it also expands its fiber network.

The company acquired the Northwest operations of Frontier Communications last May and began investing an additional $500 million to improve the network and services and has been busy building new fiber connectivity to dozens of cities and towns throughout Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

Ziply Fiber’s Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Chris Gellos said, “The interest from agents has been tremendous and we’re seeing both the demand for our services in the marketplace and the desire among agents to showcase our offering when meeting with their clients. It’s clear our strategy of investing aggressively in building new fiber directly to businesses in our footprint is something agents find valuable to their clients.”

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.

Currently, it services more than 210 regional cities and towns and is adding more every month.

With more than 4.2 million feet of new fiber deployed in the last few months, Ziply Fiber is designing its modern network to meet the internet, data and voice needs of today’s world, while ensuring the capacity to handle whatever businesses need today and into the future

Among the master agents that have signed agreements are:

  • AppSmart
  • Global Communications Group
  • Innovative Business Solutions
  • Intelisys Communications
  • Sandle Partners
  • Telecom Brokerage Inc
  • Telecom Consulting Group
  • Telarus Inc.
  • Venicom

Beyond its network differentiators, other benefits of Ziply Fiber’s Agent Channel Program include competitive commissions, a dedicated Channel Team, and a single place to go from everything from site qualifications to pricing requests and commission inquiries to account and billing questions.
