“It’s just a win-win. The more broadband the better,” said J.J. Shawver, member services coordinator of Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce.
TDS is a broadband service provider based out of Madison, Wisconsin. The company's goal is to get fiber optic internet to rural communities across the U.S.
“We hope to help twin falls grow, so as far as the community itself, if you’re growing, we’re growing and we are here to serve the needs for the community,” said Julie Maiers, senior vice president of marketing, sales, and customer operations.
This service will provide high speed internet to hundreds of businesses and thousands of homes across the Magic Valley.
“I mean when you’re talking about 32,000 homes here in the magic valley that’s astronomical and we are just very excited,” said Shawver.
