Now offers the fastest available speed in much of its fiber footprint

It’s true! We have officially quadrupled our fastest available internet speed. Up to 8Gig symmetrical service is now the top speed option for homes, and is also available for businesses, in more than 75 communities across the U.S. served over our fiber infrastructure. This announcement means we’re offering the fastest internet speeds in our recently launched fiber footprint, as well as planned fiber-optic build communities across Idaho, Montana, North Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin.

“We are committed to being the fastest provider in our fiber communities,” says Andrew Petersen, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs at TDS. “Our rollout of speeds up to 8Gig shows how powerful and flexible fiber-optic technology is.”

We first offered multi-gig speeds last fall with the launch of up to 2Gig in select areas—but now the top speed in those locations will be up to 8Gig! We know one size doesn’t fit all though, so we’ll continue to offer up to 2Gig, as well as a range of symmetrical choices so you can choose what will work best for you.

An 8Gig plan is ideal for broadband super users, specifically those who use photo or editing programs, stream content, and play mid-to-high-end games. Our up to 8Gig offering is symmetrical, with equal upload and download speeds. The robust connection means subscribers can download and upload files—regardless of size—nearly instantaneously, making it well suited for commercial customers as well as households with large, shared internet needs.
