TDS completes fiber network builds in Wisconsin

July 17, 2020
1Gig speeds are now available to 11,000 addresses in the state.

TDS Telecom this week announced its fiber network builds in the village of Oregon and the city of McFarland, Wisconsin are now complete. Combined, the two projects connect more than 5,000 Oregon and 5,700 McFarland residential and business addresses to up to 1 gigabit (1Gig) internet speeds, TV, and phone service.

“We appreciate the support we’ve received from both Oregon and McFarland as we worked diligently to complete these fiber network builds,” said Julie Maiers, vice president of marketing and product development at TDS.

The company’s expansion into these communities was announced in April 2018. The first customers were connected to the fiber-optic network last year. Now, both networks are complete and available to all addresses included as part of the project.

“We’ve enjoyed becoming part of the fabric of these communities and couldn’t be more excited to deliver the speed and bandwidth residents and businesses have been looking for,” added TDS's Maiers.

The build effort, which included both buried cable and aerial components, required installing more than 140 miles of fiber. The company is actively working on two other Dane County fiber builds in the communities of Monona and Stoughton, Wisconsin.

With network construction finished, TDS says it will wrap-up the remaining connection work and begin installing services to the final neighborhoods. Residents can visit to learn more about the services offered and call 888-225-5837 to sign up for service.
