TDS Commits to High-Speed Internet Service for the Town of Perry

Contact TDS to Request a Possible Interim Service Upgrade

TDS Telecommunications Inc. has announced it will bring high-speed internet service to the Town of Perry residents.

In a January 10, 2024, letter to State Senator Dianne Hesselbein and Representative Mike Bare, TDS committed to upgrading Perry’s existing low-speed copper wire network by building a new broadband fiber optic network in the town.  The new network will offer speeds over 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps).  The average speed in Perry is 12.6/3.7 Mbps.

Town of Perry Chairman Roger Kittleson told TDS he was delighted to read about TDS’s commitment to the Town and looks forward to hearing more from TDS as the project moves forward.

Under current FCC rules, the high-speed fiber optic service project must be completed by 2028.  Until then, it may be possible for some Town residents to upgrade their existing low-speed copper wire internet service to a higher-speed copper wire service called “bonded twisted pair.”

Town residents interested in upgrading their service to “bonded twisted pair” should contact TDS to request an evaluation to determine if it can be done at their location.
