TDS to expand to Village of Oregon; plans to build new fiber optic broadband network

Village residents to enjoy Gigabit speeds, TDS TV, and business services.

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS Telecom/TDS®) announces plans to partner with the village of Oregon, Wisconsin to build a new fiber optic network.

TDS intends to immediately start construction of the broadband network and expects to begin offering services this fall. When complete, TDS plans to launch residential high speed internet services — up to one Gigabit — along with full-feature TDS TV and phone service for people living in Oregon. For businesses, TDS will provide up to one Gigabit internet, dedicated fiber connections, and TDS managedIP, a hosted VoIP communications solution.

“Advanced communication services with fiber-to-the-home installations create unlimited potential for the Internet of Things,” says TDS President and CEO Jim Butman. “In fact, Gigabit per second service can transmit a two-hour movie in just 16 seconds. That’s one reason fiber-optic technology is in such high demand. Everyone is looking to the future of the internet and TDS is ready to bring it to Oregon.” 

The village of Oregon, population 9,700, is located just minutes from the Wisconsin state capitol and University of Wisconsin – Madison campus. Oregon’s family-friendly community maintains a hometown ambiance and small town hospitality with strong schools and solid small business development.

TDS launched similar next-generation services in nearby Sun Prairie, Wisconsin late in 2017 with construction continuing this spring. Just last week, TDS announced plans to expand fiber optic technology in nearby McFarland.

“Our efforts in Sun Prairie, and now to the villages of McFarland and Oregon, demonstrate TDS’ commitment to providing advanced technology and choice to more area residents and businesses,” added Butman. “We are excited to bring high speed internet to these communities and stand ready to become a strong community partner.”
