A new BendBroadband 600 Mbps broadband service was announced today by parent company TDS. The launch follows similar TDS cable broadband upgrades, which also feature 600 Mbps tiers.
BendBroadband operates in central Oregon and was acquired by TDS back in 2014. TDS has since assembled quite a few cable operators, including properties in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and New Mexico.
Like the previous TDS cable network upgrades, this BendBroadband 600 Mbps tier is powered by DOCSIS 3.0 technology over both HFC and RFoG, according to the company.
“BendBroadband will continue to make investments in our network to ensure superior and fast internet for our customers today and in the future,” said Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development at TDS Telecom in a press release.
The 600 Mbps tier offers a 20 Mbps upload path for residential customers, which increases to 30 Mbps for business customers. Pricing for the residential 600 Mbps tier starts at an unbundled price of $99.99 per year, but can be less when bundled.
BendBroadband does cap bandwidth for Internet-only subscribers at 1 TB per month. Broadband and video bundles have unlimited data usage.
