    So that’s Colorado Springs and Fort Collins now with 300Mb service. When can we expect to see this deployed in the West Arvada/Table Mountain area?

      Bill, Depending on plan approvals, the timing for when 300M will be available in Arvada is still to be determined. It will probably be within the next year or 18 months. Cheryl

      FROM TDS’ Acceptable Use Policy::

      TDS Internet customers are restricted to 250 Gigabytes of bandwidth consumed (uploaded or downloaded) per month. If you exceed this limitation, you may be required to purchase an upgraded Internet Service for an additional monthly fee. You acknowledge that each level of TDS’s High Speed Internet Service has limits on the maximum speed at which you may send and receive data at any time, as set forth in the price list or either the Residential Service Agreement or the Commercial Service Agreement, whichever is applicable (the “Service Agreement”). You understand that the actual speeds you may experience at any time will vary based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the capabilities of your equipment, Internet congestion, technical properties of the websites, content and applications that you access. TDS may take such steps as it determines appropriate consistent with its Broadband Internet Service Disclosure in the event your usage of the Internet Service does not comply with the package of service you selected or the Service Agreement. Additionally, TDS may use tools and techniques as it determines appropriate in order to efficiently manage its network and to ensure a quality user experience for its subscribers.
