TDS hits 10,000 total registrations

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) recently surpassed 10,000 total registrations for customers requesting new service in the communities of Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, Hayden, and Rathdrum, Idaho.

“This milestone is a testament to the enthusiasm these communities have shown for the fiber network project as it rolls out,” said Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS. “We’re thrilled residents and area businesses are beginning to enjoy the speeds and bandwidth they need for distance learning, streaming, and working at home.”

“We’re not done yet, though.” Maiers added. With a total of 33 neighborhoods completed, TDS has worked hard to overcome unanticipated construction delays and challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our commitment to these communities is steadfast. We will continue launching neighborhoods until the build is completed by the end of 2021,” said Wade Soczka, director of Network Construction. “Construction crews will be working hard as the winter months progress.”

The first neighborhoods in Rathdrum were launched earlier this month, and neighborhoods in Post Falls can expect to receive services by mid-November.

“As we get increasingly busy turning up addresses, now, is the perfect time to register for services,” said Maiers. “There will be more than enough speed and bandwidth for everyone.”
