TDS Helps Bring High-speed Internet to Port Byron and Savannah, New York

  • New New York Broadband Program
  • TDS

MADISON, WI — TDS Telecom, a provider of high-speed Internet, phone, and TV entertainment services to more than a hundred rural, suburban, and metropolitan communities, announced Internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps are now available to more than 1,250 home and business addresses in the Port Byron and Savannah areas of New York. The upgraded FTTH internet service comes thanks to the completion of two grant-supported network improvement projects. Both projects were funded by TDS Telecom (TDS) and the New NY Broadband Program.

The multi-phase grant project to deliver up to 100 Mbps internet was awarded to TDS for addresses within its Port Byron Telephone Company footprint. Impacted communities in the Port Byron exchange include: Conquest, Montezuma, Port Byron, Spring Lake, Hejemada, Mays Point, Duck Lake, Emerson, and Mosquito Point. Impacted communities in the Savannah exchange include the Town of Butler and the Town of Savannah.

Installing 113 Miles of Fiber-Optic Cable

The project, which has been in the works for more than two years, included installing more than 113 miles of fiber-optic cable and upgrading a variety of back-end system equipment. The state-of-the-art fiber infrastructure now delivers internet speeds from 25 Mbps to 100 Mbps.

TDS was awarded nine grants worth approximately $21.4 million statewide as part of the New NY Broadband Program and TDS is investing more than $13 million. In addition to its two Port Byron Telephone projects, TDS has completed grants in its Deposit Telephone Company, Edwards Telephone Company, and Township Telephone Company footprints.
