TDS expanding Green Bay area fiber network build to include De Pere and Allouez, Wisconsin
Nearly 15,000 more addresses will gain high-speed internet connections up to 2,000Mbps
TDS Telecommunications, LLC (TDS®) announced plans to add nearly 15,000 addresses in De Pere and Allouez to its 100 percent fiber network build in the Green Bay area. The project will deliver fiber-fast internet of up to 2Gig (2,000Mbps) upload and download speeds to residential customers, and businesses will gain dedicated connections of up to 10Gig. TDS will also be offering TV and voice services for all customers.
“Access to fast and reliable internet is vitally important as communities continue to connect, educate, and conduct business using websites and virtual spaces. As the City of De Pere also continues to expand our own digital offerings to our community members, we hope residents and businesses will appreciate having increased options for faster internet speeds,” said De Pere Mayor James Boyd.
Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, TDS shared its plans to build in Green Bay, Ashwaubenon, and Bellevue in October of last year. Construction on the high-tech infrastructure project is expected to begin in early spring.
“High-speed internet access is vital when it comes to the ever-changing digital world. We are thrilled to welcome another option in our area to further support our existing and future residents, businesses, and schools.” Brad Lange, Village of Allouez Administrator
The network will be turned on and made available to residents in phases, as the build work is completed neighborhood by neighborhood. TDS will be offering every residential customer identical upload and download in a range of speeds up to 2Gig.
“Now more than ever communities are looking for reliable, fast internet for residents and businesses alike,” said Andrew Petersen, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs at TDS. “Fiber-optic technology delivers these robust, high-quality connections.”
The build will also bring a new TV and phone service competitor to the area, with TDS offering its full-featured TDS TV®+ product. Businesses can choose dedicated connections, TDS TV+, and the company’s hosted VoIP communications solution called managedIP.
“We ask for patience during construction, and hope this project, once completed, will help serve our community well for the demands of today and whatever awaits us in the future,” said Boyd.
TDS recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the city of Eau Claire to build a fiber network in that community. The company just completed their build in Stevens Point and recently announced the launch of its fiber network in Wisconsin’s Fox Cities. TDS has been doing business in the state for 53 years and serves customers in 32 states.
