TDS fiber network expansion launching in Elkhorn, Wis.

TDS Telecom’s (TDS®) fiber-optic network expansion project is well underway in Elkhorn, with service now available to the first addresses included in the new build areas. More than 470  additional area addresses can receive up to 1,000Mbps/1Gig internet, TV, and phone service as part of a project doubling the TDS fiber footprint in Elkhorn. Service launches will continue in phases in the coming months. When the project is complete, nearly 3,000 additional area addresses can access the faster speeds and competitive products.

“This network investment will deliver the reliable fast speeds residents have been looking for—now more than ever,” says Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS. “From video conferences and attending classes remotely, to playing online games and shopping, fiber can handle anything you want to do online with ease.”

Along with 1Gig internet speeds, the growth of TDS’ fiber footprint also expands the availability of TDS TV®+. TDS’ cloud-based TV service combines live TV—broadcast channels, regional sports content, and national cable channels—with streaming services like Netflix*.

TDS TV+ uses smart technology to provide custom recommendations based on a customer’s viewing habits. The service includes a voice-activated remote that allows customers to have quick access to the full functionality of their TV experience. Customers can also stream live TV and recordings on personal devices at home or on-the-go with TV Everywhere.

This network expansion offers business customers internet access and transport connections up to 10Gig via dedicated fiber and TDS managedIP, a hosted VoIP communications solution. TDS TV® is also available to business customers in the fiber footprint.

Residents can visit TDSFiber.com to order service and see if their address will be included in the fiber build.
