WisBusiness: TDS unveils new WiMax Internet service in Madison


TDS is turning on its WiMAX signal in Madison today.

TDS is the first communications provider in Wisconsin to offer true WiMAX — what the company calls a “revolutionary,” wireless high-speed Internet and phone service.

The new WiMAX technology will provide digital phone and broadband service to nearly 65,000 customers in the Madison area during the first stages of the product rollout, officials said.

“For small business entrepreneurs, telecommuters, gamers, individuals and families salivating for speed, this will be their preferred communications solution,” said Dave Wittwer, president and CEO of TDS Telecommunications Corp.

”Offering a high-speed Internet product that is easy to use and install, as well as having incredibly fast upload speeds will be a welcome change for business and residential consumers.”
