MADISON, WI -- TDS Broadband Service LLC, the parent company of Bend Broadband, has completed its acquisition of a second Central Oregon cable provider. The Wisconsin-based company, operated by TDS Telecom, purchased Crestview Cable, which serves more than 21,000 homes in Prineville, Madras, La Pine, Crooked River Ranch, Culver and Metolius.

 

In a statement issued Wednesday, TDS Telecom COO Jim Butman says the company will make significant investments in Crestview's network and infrastructure, "to prepare these communities for long-term growth." TDS had previously announced plans to further expand fiber-to-the-home services in the La Pine area. It also plans to accelerate broadband speed upgrades along with modernizing video products and services in Jefferson and Crook counties.

 

"We welcome the employees from Crestview to our team," says Butman, "They will be working closely with their fellow employees in Bend, helping to create and implement expansion plans while continuing to serve customers as they do today."

 

TDS purchased Bend Broadband in 2014.
