TDS to kick off construction in Socorro, New Mexico in the coming weeks
TDS Telecom (TDS®) is ready to begin construction of its high-speed, fiber network in Socorro, New Mexico. Once completed the network upgrade will provide 8,000Mbps/8Gig internet speeds along with TDS’ sophisticated television product and a variety of phone options to nearly 4,300 new addresses.
TDS commends community leaders for their commitment to creating a smart city for their constituents.
“We are grateful TDS will be kicking off construction of its fiber network in the next few weeks. Thank you, TDS, for investing in our community and providing services that we know are critical to the city’s economic growth," said Ravi Bhasker, mayor of the City of Socorro.
“We know bringing TDS fiber services to Socorro will be an incredible lifestyle change for this community,” said Drew Petersen, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs for TDS. “We have TDS associates who have children attending school in Socorro, so we know this is a game changer. By bringing TDS’ fast and reliable internet speeds to homes and businesses, we will connect them to the world.”
Currently, TDS only provides TV services to the residents of Socorro. Along with newly constructed 8Gig internet speeds, the growth of TDS’ fiber footprint also expands the availability of TDS TV®+. TDS’ cloud-based TV service combines live TV—broadcast channels, regional sports content, and national cable channels—with subscription-based streaming services.
TDS TV+ uses smart technology to provide custom recommendations based on a customer’s viewing habits. The service includes a voice-activated remote that allows customers to have quick access to the full functionality of their TV experience. Customers can also stream live TV and recordings on personal devices at home or on-the-go with TV Everywhere.
This network expansion offers business customers internet access and transport connections up to 10Gig via dedicated fiber and TDS managedIP, a hosted VoIP communications solution. TDS TV® is also available to business customers in the fiber footprint.
This project is solely private sector investment from TDS. No government support funds will be used.
