TDS named New Business of the Year by West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) was named New Business of the Year Thursday night at the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Awards Dinner.

TDS joined the West Bend community earlier this year when it began construction on a high-speed, all-fiber internet network. Since then, TDS has begun connecting customers to services that include internet speeds up to 8 Gig as well as TV and phone options.

In addition, TDS has sponsored community groups such as the West Bend Little League, which renamed its showcase diamond TDS Field under a new partnership agreement.

“We’re honored to receive this wonderful recognition from the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce. Since joining the community a short time ago, we greatly appreciate working with the chamber and all of the local businesses that make West Bend a fantastic place to live. We look forward to serving West Bend for years to come,” said Daniel Dersé, TDS associate manager of field marketing in West Bend.

TDS, operating as TDS Metrocom LLC, is continuing construction on its fiber network, which is expected to reach approximately 14,000 homes and businesses when completed. Work is done in phases, with residents able to connect when work is completed in their neighborhood.
