The story is here in today's Citizen. My interest is that Gilmanton also has a cable franchise agreement with Metrocast. Moultonboro's cable franchise agreement is currently with Time Warner Cable. Competition can be a good thing.
In addition to DSL broadband, TDS Telecom also offers cable and fiber internet service. Its cable service is available to approximately 580,000 people, making it the 25th largest provider of cable broadband in the U.S. by coverage area. Its fiber service is available to approximately 456,000 people, making it the 27th largest provider of fiber broadband in the U.S. by coverage area.
According to this recent press release, “With the success of TDS TV in other New Hampshire communities like Hillsborough and Henniker, we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to Alton and its neighboring communities,” says Julie Maiers, director of Marketing at TDS. “It means faster speeds, a new choice for TV service, and the opportunity for exclusive discounts.”
