TDS launches 600Mbps in 8 cable communities

Plenty of bandwidth to meet everyone’s needs is the selling point for residents in eight TDS cable communities thanks to the launch of 600Mbps in those communities.

On Friday, Dec. 15, 600Mbps was rolled out in:

Fort Collins

New Mexico
Alamogordo,  Carlsbad, Eunice, Hobbs, Lovington and Ruidoso

Cedar City

With Ultra 600, TDS customers can download movies, television shows, music and video games at six times the speed of Ultra 100. In addition, customers will have upload speeds of 20Mbps.

“Ultra 600 is ideal for households with multiple Internet-connected devices,” says Shane West, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS. Users can game, stream, and upload concurrently, without slowdown.  “It provides plenty of bandwidth to meet everyone’s needs.”

Live video is set to be the fastest growing segment of the internet. Thanks to higher-quality video and the growth in live broadcast of sports, bandwidth needs will continue to grow.

“Ultra 600 is great for streaming multiple HD movies in a flash,” said West. “In addition, video conferencing is becoming more popular. Skype and Facetime use lots of bandwidth and Ultra 600 will provide improved video quality. Ultra 600 is a real timesaver for TDS customers.”

Ultra 600 is the result of recent TDS network improvements in these communities. Not only will these improvements allow for faster speeds, but improved capacity for all Internet customers.

“We’ll continue making investments in our network to ensure we’re bringing customers the service­ and speed they need today–and tomorrow,” says West.

TDS Ultra 600 provides TDS business customers up to 600 Mbps download and up to 30 Mbps upload speed. “For businesses,” West says, “Ultra 600 enables faster connections, which means improved workplace efficiency.”  It also supports higher-quality video for improved video-conferencing experiences.

TDS customers can learn more about Ultra 600 at or calling 1-855-696-8368.
