TDS Bringing 1Gig Internet to Small New Hampshire Communities

MADISON, WI — TDS Telecom, which provides 1.1 million connections to high-speed Internet, phone and TV entertainment services to customers in more than a hundred rural, suburban, and metropolitan communities, announced that New Hampshire residents in Antrim, Bennington, Chichester, Deering, Henniker, Hillsborough and Hopkinton will have access to 1Gbps Internet service before the larger cities of Concord and Manchester get it.

The company says Gig service is now available for immediate installation in parts of Hopkinton, along with TDS TV, a new Internet Protocol (IP)-based TV service. Residents in parts of Antrim will gain service in the coming weeks while the rest of the community along with Bennington residents will gain access by the end of the year. In the first quarter of 2015, Hillsborough, Deering and Henniker residents will gain access.

Lagless and Seamless Downloads
“The launch of 1Gig service means TDS customers now have access to the fastest Internet service in the nation,” said Matt Apps, manager of Internet product management and development at TDS. “With 1Gig, anything our customers do on the Internet will be incredibly fast. From streaming movies or TV shows to working from home, the experience is ‘lag-less’ and completely seamless.”

The 1Gig service is about one hundred times faster than the national average Internet speed of 10 megabits. With it, customers can transfer HD movies in seconds and connect remotely to their office or telecommute seamlessly, even on multiple devices.

Small Town Living with Benefits of Big City Employer

“Having 1 gigabit really opens up new possibilities for telecommuting,” said Apps. “The technology makes it possible for people to enjoy all the benefits of living in a smaller community while working for an employer based in a larger nearby city.”

TDS is offering 1Gig Internet service as part of a TDS TV bundle. Powered by Mediaroom, TDS TV includes a Connected-Home DVR (which links all TVs together), more than 260 all-digital channels (including 100+ in HD), on-demand TV and movies, pay-per-view, and on-the-go viewing options. Wireless set-top boxes are also available.

Customers with 1Gig bundles will automatically receive Remote PC Support at no additional cost. This service includes unlimited technical support along with device setup assistance, computer cleanup, PC optimization, and advanced Internet troubleshooting.

“As if having super high-speed Internet services isn’t exciting enough, we’re rolling out Fiberville and offering additional incentives to those who sign up early in many of these New Hampshire communities,” Apps added.
