TDS Telecom Informative - Internet Speed Fraud
CATAWBA, VIRGINIA -- I admit to being sucked in by all the advertising about broadband internet speeds from TDS Telecom. They advertise 5Mbps, but what they don't advertise is that their idea of what's fair is 2Mbps. Seems there is no regulation regarding internet speed or quality. I have used their speed test service almost daily to check and find that the majority of my service is less than 2Mbps and more often less than 1Mbps. Their service representatives are helpful--with their hands tied--the problem in my area is a "capacity issue". Yeah, they are still selling in my area. When questioned, they admit there is no date for resolving this problem. Before you purchase, get your questions ready and make sure they are answered. Be a better consumer than I was. And, if you are considering the purchase of internet services, do yourself a favor and ELIMINATE TDS TELECOM FROM YOUR LIST!
