The call to help others has never been greater. Learn how TDS has found creative ways to sponsor events and assist those organizations who are serving others in the communities we serve.

TDS donated items for the Northern Colorado Home Builders Association COVID-19 Supply Drive that benefitted these local non-profits: Nappie Project, Meals on Wheels, Food Bank for Larimer County, Weld Food Bank, and CAHB Statewide Medical Supplies Drive.

Finally, TDS signed the “Keep America Connected” pledge initiated by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai in March when the pandemic and stay at home orders began. TDS adopted all three tenets of the policy related to voice and broadband customers to:

a) forego charging late payment penalties for customers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic;
b) suspend disconnects for customers due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic who fail to pay their bills; and
c) open Wi-Fi hot spots where we maintain them for 60 days.
