TDS launches 2Gig in Spokane, Washington and Meridian, Idaho

TDS has officially launched its fastest speed ever

TDS Fiber is now capable of delivering 2Gig (2,000Mbps) internet speeds in Spokane, Washington and Meridian, Idaho. TDS will now launch 2Gig speeds in all of its new markets. The launch of 2Gig officially doubles the previous max speed offer from TDS Telecom (TDS®).

“The technology offers reliable speeds residents are looking for now more than ever, especially for those working at home, going to school, or staying in touch with family and friends online,” says Julie Maiers, vice president of TDS Marketing and Product Development. “2Gig provides the best online experience for streamers, gamers, social media users, and families with multiple users.”

With the 2Gig launch, TDS will also offer symmetrical 2Gig internet, which means download and upload speeds are identical.

This year, TDS Fiber launched its full-fiber network in Spokane in nine neighborhoods. As fiber construction projects are completed, TDS will continue to launch its services in phases.

In June, TDS Fiber announced it was expanding in Spokane County and Spokane Valley with the network ready to connect 22,000 addresses in Spokane County, including the City of Millwood, and 46,000 addresses in Spokane Valley.

TDS began building a 1,100-mile fiber-to-the-home network to Spokane in 2020. The network will ultimately connect more than 88,000 homes and businesses across the community.

Earlier this year, TDS Fiber launched its full-fiber network in four neighborhoods in Meridian. As fiber construction projects are completed, TDS will continue to launch its services in phases. The network will ultimately connect more than 57,000 homes and businesses across the communities of Meridian, Garden City, and the Town of Boise.
