TDS to connect 50K+ via fiber network builds near Green Bay, WI

Oct. 27, 2021
Close to 2Gig upload and download speeds will soon be available to residential customers in Green Bay and several surrounding communities, said TDS Telecommunications.

TDS Telecommunications LLC has announced new plans to expand its proposed fiber network to deliver up to 2Gig symmetrical internet in the area of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

In its upcoming build, the company said it will now include more than 50,000 residential and business service addresses across the areas of Green Bay, Bellevue, and Ashwaubenon.

The provider says the forthcoming fiber projects will bring up to 2Gig residential upload and download internet speeds, with 10G dedicated connections for businesses, as well as TV, and phone service. Construction in the newly announced communities will begin this fall, with fiber services becoming available to customers in phases across all three communities.

“At a time when access to fast and reliable internet is a necessity in all communities and as we, as a city, continue to expand digital access in our neighborhoods and improve the digital capabilities of city operations, I welcome the work TDS has begun to enhance competition among providers of internet, TV, and phone services to the residents of Green Bay,” said Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich.

Including the communities of Suamico, Howard, and Hobart, Wisconsin—other communities where TDS recently announced projects—TDS will ultimately be reaching nearly 70,000 Green Bay-area addresses with fiber technology.

TDS is partnering with Tilson, a network deployment and construction firm, on the new fiber builds.

“TDS’ fiber expansion in Green Bay will bring the high-speed connections residents and businesses want and need,” said Andrew Petersen, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs at TDS. “The technology can handle today’s demands and what is expected to come in the future.”

The company also recently launched its fiber network in Wisconsin’s Fox Cities—including Appleton, Kimberly, Kaukauna, Menasha, Little Chute—and is nearing completion on projects in both Wausau and Stevens Point. TDS has been doing business in the state for 53 years and serves customers in 32 states.
