High-Speed Internet: Availability varies and speeds shown may not be available at all service addresses.
Certain speeds are only offered in areas served by TDS Fiber. Actual speeds experienced by customers vary and are not guaranteed.
Speed ranges shown are expressed as “up to” to represent network capabilities between customer location and the TDS network. Speeds vary due to factors, including but not limited to: distance from switching locations, network equipment, delivery technology, and external/internal network conditions.
Discounted rate applies when purchased with a Star Phone Bundle. Prime Internet requires security line that can be used for 911 calls, and is subject to applicable charges and regulatory fees, whether or not the line is used. A one-time handling fee may apply.
Additional equipment may be required and charges may apply. A $15 service charge will apply to existing customers who switch plans without increasing speed or adding qualifying service.
In order to maximize Internet speeds above 100Mbps, a gigabit wired Network Interface Card (NIC) and/or a more advanced wireless NIC, preferably 802.11ac or higher is needed.
