Fiber internet now available to about 3,000 New London, Minn. area addresses

TDS Telecommunications, LLC (TDS®) is pleased to announce about 3,000 homes and businesses in the New London, Minnesota area have access to TDS fiber products and services. The company announced its fiber expansion plans last year and customers in Hackensack, Kerkhoven, New London, Pennock, and Spicer now can get internet speeds up to 1 Gig. These fast speeds are symmetrical, meaning upload and download speeds are the same. Beyond 1 Gig availability, commercial customers included in the fiber footprint can choose up to 10 Gig dedicated connections with a service level agreement. 

“This investment in the greater New London area is a reflection of our commitment to bring modern telecommunications services to rural communities,” says Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Drew Petersen. “Fiber-to-the-home connections are in demand because they’re not only fast, they’re also reliable and scalable for the future.” 

In addition to the company’s standard symmetrical internet service offerings over fiber, TDS also offers a special low-cost offering for Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) participants. Called TDS Connect, the product includes up to 200Mbps/200Mbps speeds at a price fully covered by the monthly ACP benefit. 

“TDS Connect is a high-quality service that’s helping to close the digital divide,” says Petersen. “The ACP program offers an important benefit, and we hope residents check to see if they qualify.”

Beyond fiber internet, TDS will continue to offer phone services and its feature-rich TV service called TDS TV®+.  In addition to offering local channels, sports content, and national networks, TDS TV+ integrates with popular streaming services, includes a cloud DVR and On Demand and TV Everywhere content. Services are available alone and bundled.

Businesses in the fiber footprint gain dedicated connections up to 10G, as well as phone service including managedIP, a hosted Voice of IP (VoIP) solution for businesses. 

TDS, headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, is now a leader in fiber deployment and serves customers in rural and suburban communities in 32 states. The company has been a local provider in New London for 53 years.
