TDS Telecom (TDS®) is celebrating the launch of 1Gig high-speed Internet service in parts of Camden County, Ga. Georgia’s Public Service Commissioner Bubba MacDonald joined TDS Telecom for the celebration to discuss the impact on the local community.
“I am pleased TDS Telecom’s 1 Gig rollout will provide residents of Camden County with access to the fastest Internet service available,” stated MacDonald. “Today, we live in an information rich society with a wealth of information at our fingertips. Communities with a strong broadband infrastructure, such as Camden, provide a place where businesses and residents want to work and live. I’d like to thank TDS for their commitment to bringing high speed Internet access to Georgia and wish you and the Camden community much success.”
This new Internet speed — the fastest TDS offers — is designed to meet the ever-growing demand by customers for bandwidth. Real-time entertainment, according to recent data, accounts for more than 67 percent of all downstream Internet traffic during peak hours. With TDS’ 1Gbps download/400 Mbps upload, customers can transfer HD movies in seconds and stream them seamlessly—even on multiple devices.
“Consumers can enjoy a lightning fast Internet experience with a 1Gig connection,” said Tom McCabe, State Government Affairs manager at TDS. “Plus, 1Gig can increase home values and enhance the attractiveness of this fine community!”
A few weeks ago, in early December, TDS announced availability of this new, faster Internet service in parts of Camden County. Now, customers within TDS’ fiber-optic network footprint can order the new speed immediately as part of a TDS TV bundle.
“Investing in the communities we serve is a critical belief at TDS,” added McCabe. “For the past few years, our investment has been primarily focused on deploying fiber optics. This investment has allowed us to roll out TDS TV and now 1Gig Internet service. We will continue investing in both the technology and the services our customers need and want.”
TDS’ 1Gig Internet service includes a free subscription to Remote PC Support which provides unlimited access to technical expertise. Remote PC Support technicians assist with device setup, Internet troubleshooting, plus computer optimization and safety.
TDS TV, a Mediaroom-based all-digital TV service, features more than 260 all-digital channels (including HD), video-on-demand, pay-per-view, picture-in-picture channel surfing, and instant channel change. It also includes a Connected-Home DVR, which links all TVs together in a home giving full DVR functionality to each set-top box. Wireless set-top boxes are also available.
TDS has been providing customers in Camden County with telecommunications services for more than 20 years. The company currently employs about 50 people in the state. For more details about TDS’ 1Gig service, visit tds1gig.com or call 888-CALL-TDS.
