TDS to increase its Montana workforce

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is pleased to announce it’s now hiring as it continues to increase its presence in the Treasure State. The telecommunications company currently has 45 associates working in Montana and hopes to add about two dozen more.   

In September 2021, TDS kicked off construction on its 500-mile fiber-to-the home network across the city of Billings, Montana, which is the first city in Montana to receive a fiber optic network. When the project is complete, TDS will deliver up to 8Gig internet speeds for businesses and residents.
