TDS Fiber RV Square

TDS Fiber is coming to four new communities

Hi, McFarland, Oregon, DeForest, and Cottage Grove!

Did you hear the news? We’re bringing world-class fiber-optic services to your area—four communities many of us TDS employees already call home (Go Spartans! Go Panthers! Go Norskies! Go Silver Eagles!).

Although we’ll be new to your backyard, we’re a home-grown company. In fact, odds are, you’ve seen us around Madison at one point or another because we’ve been headquartered on the west side since our founding in 1969. Nearly 50 years later, lots of things have changed but our mission remains the same: to deliver great communications services to customers.

Of course, technology looks quite different these days. Party lines and switchboards are long gone, and we’re staying ahead of the times by rolling out fiber-optic networks across the country—and, lucky for you, McFarland, Oregon, DeForest, and Cottage Grove are next on our list. That means you’ll soon be able to get the fastest internet around, all-digital TV service with a whole-home DVR, and still keep an oh-so-reliable landline.

We’re really excited for you to give our services a try and we’re thrilled to be an official part of your community. Come and say hello when you see us at local parades and events—you might just recognize some of us.

We’re doing a lot more than just having fun though. We’re busy finalizing the build plans so we can start construction as soon as we can (we’ll be doing our best to beat the winter freeze!).

Look for more information about our rollout timeline in the next month or two on Pop in your address for more information, and go ahead and register if you have the option. There’s no commitment, but signing up early means you’ll get the best deal and all of the available offers.

If you want an endorsement before you register, feel free to talk to your friends in Waunakee, Middleton, Verona, Johnson Creek, and Sun Prairie. They’ll tell you what a difference TDS Fiber makes.

For even more information, don’t hesitate to explore our other TDS Fiber blogs. We’ve talked about lots of things including 5 reasons fiber is better, or how the construction process works, and even why symmetrical internet speeds are awesome. And, if seeing is believing, feel free to wander over to Sun Prairie. You can visit what we’re calling the Tim O’Brien Tech Home or make an appointment to visit our Tech Suite.

See you soon!

    Hey Doug, don’t get too excited. I’m in Waunakee and have been getting the flyers for TDS fiber every month for over 2 years, but it’s still not available in my neighborhood (Southbridge).

      Bob, hang in there. We’ve heard similar from other Southbridge folks through other channels. We hope we can expand to your neighborhood sometime soon. In the meantime, if you’d like to send your address to we can investigate why you’re getting our marketing materials if you shouldn’t be. Thank you!
