TDS Begins FTTH Construction in Northern Idaho



  • TDS

MADISON, WI — TDS, an ISP  serving customers in more than a hundred rural, suburban and metropolitan communities, announced that it began construction of a 700-mile fiber optic network this past June in Idaho's fast-growing Coeur d'Alene area. TDS' contractor, Quanta Services, has begun laying the first miles of fiber.

TDS is already entrenched in the community, sponsoring local events, pre-registering customers, and creating new jobs. With 27 people hired so far, TDS plans to add many more jobs in the region by the end of 2022. “We’ve only scratched the surface,” said Julie Maiers, vice president of marketing and product development at TDS. “We’re committed to truly investing in the growing communities of Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, Hayden, and Rathdrum.”

Certain CDA neighborhoods are expected to receive services as soon as November. New customers can check their neighborhood status at Residents should watch their mailboxes and doors for notices alerting when construction is due to start. TDS is partnering with Quanta’s highly skilled and trained workforce to build the area’s new, cutting-edge fiber network. Look for Quanta trucks to be parked next to the construction site when it comes time to lay fiber.
