TDS completes second fiber network in Washington County, Utah

TDS Telecommunications, LLC (TDS®) has completed construction and fully launched a fiber-to-the-home network in a second community in Washington County, Utah. TDS is now providing 3,700 service addresses in Ivins with lightning-fast internet speeds of up to 8 Gig. This projects follows the completion of a similar fiber build-out in Santa Clara.

To mark the successful network launches, TDS associates expressed their appreciation for the community support Friday by surprising municipal leaders and first responders with donuts, appropriately on National Donut Day.

“We know high speed connections make a difference in attracting and retaining businesses and residents,” said Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Andrew Petersen, “We couldn’t have done these projects without the cooperation from community leaders.”

TDS is delivering 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.

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.

TDS is committed to helping bridge the digital divide by making broadband more accessible. Although the Federal Communication Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program has ended, TDS continues to offer its low-cost internet service called TDS Connect.

Along with lightning-fast internet speeds, TDS is passionate about being a good community partner. 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. This week more than 50 associates volunteered at Root for Kids, doing various spring cleanup tasks at the nonprofit organization that helps kids thrive in the community.

TDS was recently recognized as being the “Best of Southern Utah”, again. TDS was named the Gold Winner in “Best Telecom provider” and the Silver Winner in the “Best Internet provider” categories. Canyon Media conducted the Best of Southern Utah contest, which included community voting in the Southern Utah communities TDS serves.
