Tds internet has grown in wayne county but no upgrades getting done.
instead of upgrade on our service they are just cutting all customers internet back on customers. i went from 3 meg to only 1.5 meg. i think they got a government grant to do upgrades they need to use it for that. but even tho they have more customers the just cut everyone back on the little bit of crappy service they already had. I want everyone to call tds let them know this is unexceptable as the service in wayne county sucks already. if they go slower they may as well go back to dial up.so call tds tell the get to updating and stop screwing us raw. most of you already dont get what your paying for. the way to check your speed is to go to speedtest.net just hit check now button.call tds today tell them upgrade not down grade us. 1-888-225-5837 tell them enough is enough.

Yep....they have the lock on internet service here for the most part and it's limited to certain areas . They don't seem interested in serving everyone here with good internet speeds.

If Walmart was to come to our town it would put good people out of business like Piggly wiggly and other stuff! Iwould much rather have the good deals I get at the Piggly wiggly and the personal service I get at Duren's than any Wal mart!!

What does any of this have to do with our internet service???

Just a thought....

Yes, I've noticed what seems like a slow down as well. If you can use a speed test to validate the claim that it is indeed slow. And depending on what your individual agreement with TDS is on speed.

If you document the speed checks with screen shots pointing to speeds that are below your individual agreement with TDS, you may have legal grounds for a 'breach of contract'. Personally, using that as a basis, I'd send TDS a letter saying that you don't feel it's correct paying an agreed price for a service you didn't get or aren't getting. You would still have to pay the agreed price or YOU would be in breach. But giving warning to TDS is the first step.

That holds with the server being 'off line' or 'out of service' a lot of the time. Like you're paying for 30 days service and only getting 26. Your contract should read 'per month'. I don't recall that day number is indicated.

tds will tell you that the best speed test site is www.speedtest.net ---I pay for 5 mps speed and only get from .11 to 1.42---.11 is almost 2x faster than dial up butis still to slow to play online games.
complaining to tds has given me 15 dollars off of my internet bill each month for 1 year after the year is up i have to call again to recieve it again ---power cycling wont help much but if they reset it at the office it gets better for a day or so
it is a capisity problem and they are working on it but not enough people live here to buy new equipment so they will up grade a bigger city and take their used equipment to upgrade us
also was told that on of the problems is that some counties are giving them problems with permits ect. wouldnt say if that was our problem but we are on the active list for upgrades
as for other services watch what you are getting especially if you online play because there is a limit to upload and downloads and once those limits are reached the bill gets outragous.
on a nother side note never ever sign up with security networks home security company their contracts are way too long and there isnt a way out of them---read it on the net and at the bbb

I agree - I have had nothing but trouble out of my TDS DSL Internet. It is ridiciously slow. I've been told they are running new lines for a fiber optic upgrade but no one knows when it will be available or who will be able to get access to it. We need another Internet service provider (other than Netease - can't get wireless without line of sight of their tower).
