TDS Fiber now available in Rothschild, Wisconsin

First of more than 2,400 addresses can now connect to 1Gig internet

The first 530 Rothschild, Wisconsin, addresses can now access TDS Telecom’s (TDS®) fiber-optic network and up to 1Gig internet speeds. The service, which will continue to roll out in phases over the coming months, will eventually connect more than 2,400 Rothschild residential and business addresses to 1 gigabit (1Gig) internet speeds along with TV and phone.

“Now more than ever, we’re relying on technology to help us thrive during this pandemic,” says Julie Maiers, vice president Marketing and Product Development at TDS. “The TDS Fiber network delivers the reliable, fast connection people need whether they’re working home, attending classes remotely, or just wanting to unwind with great TV entertainment.”

TDS announced the expansion to Rothschild, Kronenwetter, Weston, and Wausau in July of last year. In total, the build will include more than 35,700 addresses.

In addition to bringing 1Gig fiber internet, TDS Fiber also offers residents a new TV service choice. TDS’ product includes a variety of advanced features including TV Everywhere, multi-room DVR, as well as local broadcast channels, regional sports content, and national cable networks.

Businesses within the TDS Fiber footprint can order internet access and transport connections up to 10Gig via dedicated fiber, TDS managedIP (a hosted VoIP communications solution), and TDS TV®.

Registered customers in the launch areas will be contacted to schedule their installations.

Area residents can visit to see if their address is included in the fiber build and sign up for the new service.
