TDS Internet Service offers free 60 days of service to families with school age children.
For families in towns served by TDS:
Any family in need of internet service may call TDS at 888-225-5837. They should tell the operator that they heard about the free 60 days of service for families with school-aged children, and the operator will know what to do. TDS will arrange an appointment for a technician to install service and a modem at the family's home. Current lead times are within one week, and it will probably be wise for families to call sooner rather than later.
