We want to provide our customers with the best service and programming, but we also want to do so at the best value. We are fully prepared to pay a fair price for programming, but when demands are made for unprecedented increases in monthly fees, we strongly believe it’s our responsibility to take a stand for our customers.
TDS works hard during every contract negotiation and we won’t let unreasonable terms and prices sacrifice the best interests of our customers. Thank you, as always, for being one of ours!
