TDS Metrocom to build FTTH network in Idaho
Broadband World News, , 4/3/2020
MADISON, Wis. – TDS Metrocom, a business unit of TDS Telecommunications LLC, unveiled plans to build a fiber-to-the-home network in the fast-growing Meridian, Idaho area. The network will ultimately connect more than 57,000 homes and businesses across the communities of Meridian, Garden City, and the Town of Boise.
TDS’ expansion into Meridian will also create new job opportunities. New positions in sales and technical services are currently posted on the company’s website with additional positions anticipated in the coming months. TDS officials and contracted construction teams will become highly visible in the area this spring.
Meridian will become one of the most highly connected communities in the nation with Gigabit speed offerings to delight residential and commercial customers, telecommuters, and online education computer-users alike.
Last year, TDS began building a 700-mile fiber-optic network to the nearby communities of Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, Hayden Lake, Post Falls, and Rathdrum, Idaho to deliver the same 1Gig broadband technology. The first customers were connected in November of 2019 and services will continue launching in phases in the coming months.
Residents and businesses interested in learning more about the fiber-optic products and services that will be made available from TDS can visit http://www.tdsfiber.com.
