Please attribute the following statement to Andrew Petersen, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs at TDS Telecommunications (TDS®):

“TDS Telecom would like to thank the bipartisan group of U.S. Senators advocating for the enhancement of the Alternative Connect America Cost Model (ACAM) program. We applaud their commitment to delivering affordable broadband to every American regardless of where they live. An extended ACAM program will bridge the digital divide by bringing future-proof, reliable fiber internet speeds to rural areas. We join the Senators’ urgent call for the FCC to update the rural broadband program as soon as possible.”
