TDS building fiber network in Stoughton, Wisconsin

Residents will be able to choose gigabit internet speeds, TDS TV, plus business services

TDS is coming to Stoughton. Residents in the city of Stoughton will soon see faster internet speeds and a new choice of TV provider due to a fiber-to-the-home network project just announced by TDS Telecom (TDS®). TDS has been working with city officials on necessary approvals for the network expected to connect more than 7,400 residential and business addresses.

“I am pleased to welcome TDS to the city of Stoughton,” says Stoughton Mayor Tim Swadley. “Offering high-speed internet and television options is important to local families and businesses. We look forward to working with TDS in the upcoming months as they prepare to serve the Stoughton area.”

Madison-based TDS, who has also recently built fiber networks in Oregon, McFarland, Deforest, and Windsor, Wis., will offer residential customers up to one gigabit internet speeds, TDS TV, and phone service. Businesses will have the option to receive up to 10 gigabit connections, dedicated fiber, and TDS’ hosted VoIP business phone solution, managedIP. The company expects the first customers will be connected by the end of this year.

“We are really excited to bring a competitive option for broadband and entertainment services to the residents of Stoughton,” says Drew Petersen, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs at TDS. “You can’t help but notice the difference fiber makes, not only because of the speed, but because it offers a consistent speed and a reliable connection.”

TDS is finalizing the engineering of the network and will be starting construction in earnest this spring. The project will include installing fiber-to-the-home connections and laying underground fiber in neighborhoods and business parks.
