Competition in broadband is bringing better service options to residents of Delta County.
TDS Telecom recently announced an upgrade of service for the Cedaredge area. In a statement issued last month the company states that its customers in the Cedaredge area have faster broadband speeds with the recent launch of up to 50Mbps internet speed.
"For households that demand lots of internet, 50Mbps offers enough bandwidth for delay-free downloads and uploads of speed of 1.5 to 10Mbps," said Shane West, vice president of Marketing and Product Development for TDS. "We've invested and will continue to invest in the TDS network in Cedaredge, which has paved the way for launches like this one,"
Since December, nearly 1,000 customers in the Cedaredge area received upgraded speeds, according to the company.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
Casey Gillenwater, 25, of Delta was killed the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 13, in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 133 outside of Hotchkiss.
