Please attribute the following statement to Andrew Petersen, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs at TDS Telecommunications (TDS®):
“TDS Telecom congratulates Jessica Rosenworcel on her bipartisan confirmation as Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), becoming the first female to lead the agency. We know and respect her and have worked diligently alongside her to drive more broadband service availability into our most rural markets.
“Chairwoman Rosenworcel believes broadband services are essential. We at TDS are committed to collaborating with her and her colleagues to extend the current Alternative Connect America Cost Model (ACAM) program plan to advance higher, future-proof broadband speeds to rural areas.
“We wish her continued success and are encouraged by the U.S. Senate’s swift approval of her nomination. There is no more important time to make the case for reliable broadband access to rural areas; we don’t have time to waste!”
