TDS Telecom says it is working to bring its all-fiber Internet service to more than 3,800 homes and businesses in rural Wisconsin.
The company launched its fiber lines in Whitewater, a small town nestled in Walworth and Jefferson counties with a population of just under 15,000.
Construction will be done in phases and residents will be able to sign up for TDS high-speed internet once it is available at their address, the company said in a statement.
Residents will see construction workers in their neighborhoods during fiber construction and will be notified in advance by signs, door hangers and mailed letters.
“The start of construction marks another exciting milestone as we strive to better connect residents and businesses in Whitewater and throughout Wisconsin,” said Andrew Peterson, senior vice president of corporate affairs at TDS Telecom, in a statement. “We look forward to serving Whitewater for years to come.”
Once construction is complete in Whitewater, residents will be able to subscribe to TDS high-speed Internet, which offers connection speeds of up to 8 gigabits per second.
A spokesperson for TDS Telecom said the Madison-based company has construction projects underway in nearly every corner of Wisconsin. In addition to high-speed Internet provided over fiber optic lines, TDS Telecom offers telephone and pay-TV services.
