TDS launches service throughout Montana

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has now launched broadband internet service in each Montana community where the company is building an all-fiber, high-speed internet network.

TDS has projects under construction in Billings, Butte, Great Falls, Helena, Helana Valley, and Missoula. Built in phases, customers can access TDS services as work is completed in their neighborhood.

The company recently celebrated the launch of service in Great Falls and has begun offering connections for residents in initial build areas in Butte and Missoula. TDS launched service in Billings, Helena, and Helana Valley earlier this year.

“We’re excited to mark another milestone in our efforts to bring Big Sky Country some of the fastest internet speeds in the country. As we enter 2024, we continue working to connect more Montana residents and businesses to high-quality services and gear up to serve our communities for years to come,” TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Drew Petersen said.

TDS, operating as TDS Metrocom LLC, is a family-owned company founded in 1969. The Montana network features a robust connection with speeds up to 8 Gig, which allows customers to download and upload files—regardless of size—nearly instantly.

In addition, TDS service includes a sophisticated digital TV product (TDS TV®+) and a variety of phone options. For businesses, the company offers dedicated connections up to 10 Gig.

TDS offers a low-cost product for qualifying Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) participants. TDS Connect includes 200Mbps/200Mbps speeds and the monthly cost is fully covered by the ACP benefit; more information can be found at

In its first two years building its fiber network in Montana, TDS has infused tens of thousands of dollars for local sponsorships and donations to charitable organizations, such as a $10,000 grant to the Worlds of Work Career Expo in Great Falls.

Residents can visit to register for service, monitor the progress of the build, and sign up for notifications about the new service.
