Weston, Wis. to become latest TDS Fiber community
Residents will receive gigabit internet speeds, TDS TV, plus business services
Village of Weston residents will soon have access to some of the fastest internet speeds in the country. On Monday the village board approved a development agreement with TDS Telecom (TDS®) to build a fiber network and deliver up to 1-gigabit internet speeds, TV, and voice services to the community.
According to the agreement, construction on the $8-10 million project will begin in Weston’s Tax Incremental District #1 and expand to the rest of the village. TDS expects to break ground in the spring and connect the first customers in fall. When completed, more than 4,400 residential customers and 550 business customers within the village limits will have access to the new network.
“The entire village of Weston leadership team immediately understood the benefits of fiber technology and the potential it brings for residents,” says Drew Petersen, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs at TDS. “From telecommuting and education, to entertainment and health care, world-class services are a real game changer.”
Located adjacent to Wausau, the village of Weston is located approximately 140 miles north of TDS headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. TDS has served central Wisconsin since 1967, with customers in nearby Mosinee, Junction City, and Vesper. TDS also just announced they will be building a fiber network in the city of Stevens Point.
