TDS® enhances fiber network in Fitchburg; brings 1Gig Internet and TDS TV®

MADISON, Wis. (April 21, 2016)—Faster Internet speeds and revolutionary TV service are expanding in parts of Fitchburg.

TDS Telecom (TDS®) is enhancing the network for customers within its service territory in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. The enhancements will provide new, faster Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit, and TDS TV®, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based TV service. These revolutionary services are expected to begin launching in mid-June.

“With the success of TDS TV in other Wisconsin communities, we couldn’t be more excited to expand it in Fitchburg,” says Julie Maiers, director of Marketing at TDS. “It means faster speeds, a new choice for TV service, and the opportunity for exclusive discounts.”

Fiberville™ will be unveiled in the Fitchburg service territory, as well. The Fiberville concept rewards residents and neighborhoods with special offers and discounts once 15 percent of the neighborhood pre-registers for TDS TV service. When this happens, “Fiberville” status is achieved and each pre-registered household receives free HD for life and free installation.

It is important to note that the TDS TV service territory reaches about 1,100 households in the following neighborhoods: Byrnewood, Oak Meadow, Wildwood, Wildwood South and the Tower Hill Park area. Residents can go to TDSfiber.com to find out if they live within the service territory. There they can also get updates on when TDS TV and 1Gig will be available, as well as track their neighborhood’s progress toward Fiberville status.

TDS TV is powered by Mediaroom® and features more than 260 all-digital channels (including 100+ in HD), on-demand TV and movies, pay-per-view, and on-the-go viewing options with TDS TV Everywhere. With TDS TV Everywhere, customers can watch movies, shows, and live content for free from their mobile devices.
