TDS Metrocom is a facilities-based provider of local, long-distance and Internet services, owning its own phone networks and operational centers, or switches, and investing millions of dollars in the communities it serves. Because of TDS' strength and financial stability, this allows the company to manage and expand its reach, in addition to diversifying its product base, something other phone companies, usually resellers of Qwest lines, are unable to do.
"Most businesses need all the help they can get to keep the bottom line balanced in this tough economy," said Jim Butman, President of TDS Metrocom. "Because we are an established phone company with more than 30 years of history, we can offer businesses more cost-effective alternatives than our competitors - and we're not going to disappear tomorrow."
