TDS Telecom Pitching 300 Mbps for $100
by Karl Bode 10:08AM Monday Dec 09 2013
TDS Telecom has announced that the company is now offering speeds of 300 Mbps across the company's footprint in Tennessee, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Georgia, and Minnesota. Though the company's press release fails to mention price, users can expect to pay around $100 and up for the service depending what kind of additional services they're willing to bundle. The company announced they'd be expanding their fiber to the home offerings last July, using a Google "fiberhood" approach to generate interest among potential communities. Locals interested to see where TDS has planned fiber upgrades should check out the companies expansion map here. You can also check out our reader reviews of TDS Telecom here.

Pricing

$100 is a steal for 300mbps if symmetrical. Here in Opelika, the same service from OPS is $250 a month.

Re: Pricing

Its not symmetrical its 300 down, 120 up, and hopefully when I call today its available for me. I already have the 100/40 service which gets me consistently around 95-98 down.

Re: Pricing

In here (Toronto), it would still be an amazing deal.

You'd be lucky if you can pay 100/mo on a 300mbps in Canada, much less 50/10mbps rates for 150% that much.

Coverage Map or Serviced Markets

Really annoying when reading a press release and a state is mentioned, but not where in the state. I really wish companies would just have a map of where they provide service to, similar to wireless carriers, so it's easy to find out if one can be a potential customer. In the very least, mention where in the state. I do see that one can put in their address to see if they're in a serviced market, but frankly I'd rather not have to put my full address down and these systems have been quite inaccurate at times.

Re: Coverage Map or Serviced Markets

That's exactly how I feel. I'm about to move into a new area but not sure of exactly where and this type of service could sway my vote on my next housing choice and that type of map would be very beneficial.

New Hampshire

I believe the only area two areas that are served in New Hampshire are New London and Contocook. From my experience with working with dial ISPs years ago in NH, these were the only two areas that were served by TDS Telecom.

Would love to know how they are going to do it because TDS has nelgected those two areas for years. (they JUST started offering DSL service a few years ago). Plus its very rural (as are many TDS POPs), so it wouldn't be very cost effective for them to pull fiber.

Nice!

I wish I could afford a little more-I'd get it. I already have their 100/40 service for $45/month+taxes/fees. It's been solid since July when I got it. 97-98 download consistently. Interesting though, I noticed on their website though that the 100 meg service isn't listed anymore. Kinda wondering if that's changing...?

Re: Nice!

I noticed on the website once I entered my Address (which is in LaVergne, TN) it still showed the 100meg service.

I also called and upgraded to the 300/120 today as well and it requires a tech to come out and do something, but the person on the phone didn't know what except that they are switching away from the V100H Modem they currently use, but he didn't know what modem it will be now. It is scheduled for December 16th so I will let you know how it goes.

You'll have to provide us details once installed on what they do to upgrade you.

fiber?

If this is fiber, why not go gigabit?

300 just keeps up with docsis 3.0 speeds already out for over a year in many cable footprints.
