Sun Prairie customers: construction is starting soon

We’ve got great news! TDS contractors will be visiting your neighborhood soon to begin (and complete!) fiber network construction.

This work will enable your fiber-to-the-home connection when services launch. But, to reach that exciting finish line will require a little bit of yard work—and we don’t mean trimming trees and pulling weeds. Our contractors will need to trench and bury a fiber line from our fiber cabinet into your yard.

Here’s what you can expect—and what you need to do—to get ready:

  1. Outside contractors will be on your property identifying and locating underground utilities. After this happens, please mark any private underground equipment such a sprinklers or pet fences.
  2. TDS Fiber contractors will come to your door and alert you to when they’ll be working outside your home.
  3. After work begins, our contractors will run the fiber line from our cabinet into your yard within 3-10 days.
  4. Don’t worry about being home. You don’t need to make an appointment or be around for our contractors to begin or complete their work.

Once work is finished in your neighborhood and the network is ready to be turned on, you can schedule your installation. At your install, TDS contractors will return to connect the fiber line to your home, and set up the equipment so you can enjoy the very best fiber-based services around.
