TDS launches service in Brookfield and New Berlin, Wisconsin
TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has connected its first customers in Brookfield and New Berlin, marking another milestone in the company’s project expanding high-speed internet options in Waukesha County.
TDS’ contracted crews began work in the area last fall on a fiber network that will provide access to speeds up to 8Gig, as well as TV and phone options. At 8Gig, files of any size can be downloaded or uploaded nearly instantaneously, making the network ideal for commercial customers and households with large, shared internet needs.
“We’re excited to take another step forward in our work to build a fiber network that will serve Brookfield and New Berlin for years to come,” TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Drew Petersen said.
When construction is completed, approximately 35,000 addresses will have access to the network. Service becomes available neighborhood by neighborhood as build work is completed.
Wisconsin-based TDS has already been active in the community, with sponsorships of events such as the Elmbrook Education Foundation Golf Open, Brookfield’s July 4 fireworks, and New Berlin’s 4th of July Family Festival.
As TDS expands its footprint into 100 new communities, any ongoing or planned expansion will be 8G capable. TDS also continues to explore opportunities to upgrade its technology in its previously launched communities.
TDS is a participant in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Qualified ACP customers can receive symmetrical speeds up to 200Mbps at no cost with the company’s TDS Connect product.
