Finally Got ‘TDS TV’ And I Am Impressed & Pleasantly Pleased. Whoa!

by Anura Guruge

I resisted ‘TDS TV‘ and TDS 1 Gig Internet for nearly 2-years. Just wasn’t sure whether it would meet some stringent requirement for good, HD quality TV. Finally, last weekend I decided to take the plunge because I really do need to upgrade and rationalize my ‘networks’ — and yes, I do have two: one from TDS and the other from Atlantic Broadband.

I will, within the month, be upgrading to TDS 1 Gig Internet. But, before I did that I wanted to see how TDS TV performed.


The HD quality is outstanding. Haven’t noticed any delay or jitter as yet.

The 300Mbps Internet service seems SOLID. I am delighted.

They insist on using an ActionTech Wi-Fi router and the one they installed today wasn’t bad at all. Actually pretty damn good. Good signal strength.

The two technicians that came to do the install, Michael V. and Micale V. (not related), were impeccable.

Overall a GREAT experience. I was over the moon.

My Atlantic Broadband 1 Gig is still not perfect, BUT this TDS install made up for it.

I will keep you posted.

But, right now, two thumbs up for TDS TV.

TP-Link’s Latest Range Extenders, AC1200 & AC1750, Look Very Competent & Compelling.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the Amazon product page for the TP-Link AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE355).

I do not really need a new super-duper Range Extender this very minute. With two separate Broadband Internet feeds into the house, 105 Mbps from MetroCast and 15 Mbps (when I am lucky) from TDS, each with its Wi-Fi network, we have decent Wi-Fi coverage in the house and our Roku 3 is Ethernet connected to the 15Mbps TDS feed.

I do have a 18-month old TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender in place and that seems to do provide enough of a boost. But when I got an e-mail from Amazon about these two new Range Extenders I was intrigued.

The house is nearly all TP-Link. I like and trust TP-Link. Huge improvement over LinkSys. So I thought I would share.
