TDS is delivering residential internet speeds up to 1 Gbps along with the company’s full-featured TDS TV and phone service. Area businesses can order up to one gigabit internet, dedicated fiber connections, and TDS’ hosted VoIP business phone solution, managedIP.

The new services are available to more than 4,500 Merrimac-area addresses today. Residential customers who registered will be contacted to schedule an installation appointment.
