TDS Telecom is getting ready to expand and improve broadband to more than 1,200 locations in southern Oklahoma, in the Arbuckle Mountains area using money from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). TDS began work in February in the Pontotoc, Murray, Coal and Johnston counties area. The project is expected to be completed in early 2018. TDS obtained USD 75.1 million in January from the FCC's A-CAM, under the Connect America Fund (CAF) programme, to expand broadband access in 25 states.
