Ting Internet, a division of Tucows, has announced that it is building a state-of-the-art esports gaming facility at both Charlottesville High School and Monticello High School in Virginia to support their esports teams while helping unlock new opportunities and career paths for students. Both facilities are expected to be complete by the end of the school year and will be accessible to thousands of students as a permanent fixture in the Charlottesville community.
“At Ting, we believe wholeheartedly in supporting our communities, lowering digital divide, improving accessibility, and giving back in meaningful ways,” said Zuri Stanback, Head of Marketing at Ting Internet. “Video games are no longer just entertainment; they integrate into many professional fields and help advance industries like never before. There are ample opportunities for long-term careers in this industry and we are proud to educate our communities on these possibilities.”
These new esports labs are the first of four that Ting will install in high schools across the country this year. These builds are being done in partnership with iCulture and will help interested youth expand their professional and social horizons.
