Taking a page from Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Fiber's book, TDS is also bringing Fiberville to the two communities. The concept is intended to reward residents and neighborhoods with special offers and discounts once 15% of the neighborhood pre-registers for TDS TV service. When the goal is met, "Fiberville" status is achieved and each pre-registered household receives free HD for life.
TDS Telecom (NYSE:TDS) plans to launch gigabit Internet service in two southeastern Wisconsin communities next month. The fiber-based 1 Gbps residential service is expected to launch in May in Bohners Lake and Wheatland, along with the company's TDS TV IP video service.
