TDS has hired Bear Communications, Inc. out of Lawrence, Kan. to do the outside construction work on this project. Once the outside work is finished, TDS will complete the inside work. The project is scheduled to be completed and accessible to customers in the fall of 2013.
TDS is receiving funding for the project from the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Utilities Service (RUS) as part of the ARRA.
