TDS blankets almost entire Santa Clara community with 8 Gig fiber

SANTA CLARA, Utah – TDS Telecom (TDS®) has completed construction of its fiber-to-the-home network and nearly the entire community of Santa Clara is now blanketed with its 8 Gig fiber network. Residents and business owners at about 2,800 service addresses in Santa Clara now have access to TDS’ super-fast internet speeds.

“Congratulations to the residents of Santa Clara who now have access to the lightening speeds and the reliable connection TDS’ fiber network offers,” says Andrew Petersen, TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “Our network provides residents and businesses the tools for the future where they can enjoy their favorite entertainment and stay connected to friends and family.”

TDS will deliver symmetrical internet speeds up to 8 Gig, TDS’ all-digital TV service, TDS TV®+, and multiple phone options. TDS TV+ offers local and popular HD channels, regional sports, and seamless access to streaming services across multiple devices while at home. The TDS TV+ Video On Demand menu allows you to access a library of hit shows and movies you can watch any time for free.

Business customers can choose internet access and transport connections up to 10 Gig via dedicated fiber and TDS managedIP, a hosted Voice over IP (VoIP) communications solution. TDS TV® is also available to business customers in the fiber footprint.

Along with our lightning-fast internet speeds, TDS is passionate about being good community partners. Giving back is an integral part of the culture at TDS. From hands-on volunteering to in-kind and financial support, TDS takes a vested interest in the growth of the communities we serve. TDS associates held its Be Safe Online, internet safety program, at Santa Clara Elementary, and the company was event sponsors for the Washington County School District Foundation, the Santa Clara Library, the Snow Canyon Little League Ice Cream Night and Swiss Days.

TDS offers a low-cost product for qualifying Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) participants. TDS Connect includes 200Mbps/200Mbps speeds and the monthly cost is fully covered by the ACP benefit.

“The federal government estimates that 40% of households across the U.S. qualify for the ACP program to reduce the cost of internet access,” says Petersen. “We urge everyone in our service territories to check whether they qualify.”
