1-gig internet service comes to Englewood


TDS Telecommunications has begun installing up to 1-gigabyte high-speed internet in Englewood with plans to extend fiber service to more than 1,200 homes and businesses by the end of the year. The Madison, Wis.- based company has already provided service to more than 700 initial customers since breaking ground on the project in November. By the end of the project, the majority of Englewood’s 1,500 residents will have access to service. The project will bring more reliable internet service to some of the most rural areas of McMinn County and help strengthen educational opportunities, business entrepreneurship, and access to vital services like telemedicine. While 1-gig is the top speed available, residents can choose other speeds within their budget with up to 10 gigs for commercial ventures and a low-cost 200-megabit service that is fully covered by the Federal Communications Commission's Affordable Connectivity Program benefit that also provides discounts to consumers.
