TDS bringing its fiber network to Missoula, Montana

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is excited to announce it will construct a new all-fiber network to Missoula, Montana, the fourth community in Montana to receive some of the fastest and most reliable internet speeds in the country.  

TDS will connect homes and businesses with its fiber network. When complete it will deliver symmetrical internet speeds up to 8 Gig (8,000 Mbps), TDS’ all-digital TV service, TDS TV®+, and a variety of phone options for residential and business customers.

“We are pleased to expand our dependable fiber system to the Hub of Five Valleys,” says Andrew Petersen, TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “Fiber networks are in high demand, and we are delighted to bring our resilient and highly reliable network to Missoula and to provide residents with this state-of-the-art technical upgrade. Not only will the homes in the Garden City be technologically ready for today, but for years to come.”   

The Madison, Wisconsin-based company is currently building a fiber network in Billings, Montana. In August 2021, TDS announced the construction of a fiber-to-the-home network, which will ultimately connect homes and businesses across Billings. With speeds up to 8 Gig, it’s possible to download a typical two-hour, 4K movie in under a minute. In the last two weeks, TDS has announced fiber construction projects in Helena and Great Falls.

TDS' expansion into Missoula will create new job opportunities, with new positions now posted on the company’s website at
