TDS Telecom to begin construction on all-fiber internet network in Sheboygan County
Sheboygan, Wisconsin – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is announcing plans to bring its high-speed, all-fiber internet network to Sheboygan County – continuing to grow TDS’ presence in Wisconsin and bringing some of the fastest internet speeds in the world to more homes and businesses.
When work is complete, more than 25,000 homes and businesses in Sheboygan County will have access to TDS’ network, which will include the communities of Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls, Plymouth, and Kohler. Construction is expected to begin this month.
“TDS is thrilled to expand our network in Sheboygan County. With this project, we will bring better connections to residents, schools, public safety agencies, and many others,” said Drew Petersen, TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs.
Fiber internet is known as the “gold standard of residential internet connections.” According to a Fiber Broadband Association report, only 43 percent of households in the United States have access to fiber, putting residents in Sheboygan County in a select group with such access.
The TDS network will feature up to 2Gig internet download and upload speeds. In addition, residents will have a new choice for TV service and phone options.
TDS’ TV product, TDS TV®+, offers local and national networks, integration with popular streaming services, the ability to start shows over, and cloud DVR. Phone packages and service bundles will be available. In addition, 10Gig dedicated connections will be available for businesses, as well as TDS’ hosted VoIP communications solution, and TDS TV+.
The projects in Sheboygan County represents just the latest step in TDS’ Wisconsin expansion. Founded in 1969 in Madison, TDS is building fiber networks in virtually every corner of the state with the recent announcement of projects in 18 communities across Wisconsin.
“As a longtime Wisconsin company, we are excited to serve more communities in our home state. As we have seen during the pandemic, fast and reliable internet is a crucial part of a community’s infrastructure and quality of life. We look forward to helping Sheboygan County grow and thrive for years to come,” Petersen said.
