1Gig internet access expanding in Halls Crossroads and Farragut, Tenn.

Nearly $8 million TDS fiber network expansion will deliver up to 1Gig speed to more than 6,400 addresses

TDS Telecom (TDS®) is expanding its fiber network to deliver high-speed internet service to thousands more residential and business addresses in the Knoxville suburbs of Halls Crossroads and Farragut, Tenn. Those impacted by the project will gain access to up to 1 gigabit (1Gig) internet speeds. The expansion project is launching to the first customers now, with additional phased rollouts continuing in the coming months.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to expand 1Gig availability in these communities,” says Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS. “It’s the gold-standard of internet speed for good reason—it offers  a fantastic customer experience regardless of whether you  want to work at home, stream entertainment, use smart-home technology, or run a business.”

When completed, the nearly $8 million build will connect over 3,400 Halls addresses and 3,000 Farragut addresses to the TDS fiber network. The project bolsters the company’s existing area infrastructure, having first offered 1Gig service to the Knoxville area in 2015.

In addition to a range of internet download speed choices up to 1 gigabit per second (1Gbps/Gig) and upload speeds of 400Mbps, the fiber network will also deliver TDS TV®, the company’s full-featured all-digital TV offering, plus phone service.

Business customers in the fiber footprint will have TDS TV available, internet access and transport connections up to 10Gig via dedicated fiber as well as, TDS managedIP, a hosted VoIP communications solution.
