TDS expands fiber network in New Hampshire; brings TDS TV and 1Gig Internet

Faster Internet speeds and revolutionary TV service are expanding in parts of New Hampshire.

TDS Telecom (TDS®) is launching TDS TV®, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based TV service, and new, faster Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit to customers in Alton, New Hampshire, and surrounding communities. The revolutionary services are expected to begin launching in early 2016.

“With the success of TDS TV in other New Hampshire communities like Hillsborough and Henniker, we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to Alton and its neighboring communities,” says Julie Maiers, director of Marketing at TDS. “It means faster speeds, a new choice for TV service, and the opportunity for exclusive discounts.”

TDS is also bringing Fiberville™ to the communities. It’s a concept that 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.

Residents can go to to get updates on when TDS TV and 1Gig will be available, as well as track their neighborhood’s progress toward Fiberville status. Services will begin launching in nearby New Durham, Barnstead, Center Barnstead and Gilmanton in 2016.

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.

TDS TV also includes a Connected-Home DVR, which links all TVs together in a home so customers can:

  • Record up to four shows at once in HD;
  • Connect up to 10 TVs to enable DVR functionality on all;
  • Schedule and playback recordings on any connected TV; and
  • Store up to 400 hours of programming (standard-definition).

Wireless set-top boxes are also available with TDS TV. Without being tethered to a cable jack, wireless set-top boxes allow customers the flexibility to move their TVs anywhere in a room—all that’s needed is a power outlet.
