Business Description

Industry: Communication Services » Telecom Services
Compare:CHU, VOD, T, VZ, AMOV » details
Traded in other countries:TDA1.Germany, TDSNA.USA,
Telephone and Data Systems, Inc., was incorporated in 1968. The Company is a diversified telecommunications company providing telecommunications services. As of December 31, 2013, the Company had approximately 4.8 million wireless customers and 1.1 million wireline and cable connections. The Company conducts its wireless operations through its subsidiary, United States Cellular Corporation and provides wireline services, cable services and hosted and managed services through its subsidiary, TDS Telecommunications Corporation. Further, TDS conducts printing and distribution services through its subsidiary, Suttle-Straus, Inc., and provides wireless services through its subsidiary, Airadigm Communications, Inc. TDS has four reportable segments: U.S. Cellular, TDS Telecom, Wireline, Cable and HMS operations, and the Non-Reportable Segment. The Wireline segment consists of the former ILEC and CLEC segments. The Cable segment consists of Baja Broadband, LLC. The HMS segment remains unchanged except that it now uses a unified brand name, OneNeck IT Solutions. All of TDS' segments operate in the United States except for HMS, which includes an insignificant foreign operation. U.S. Cellular is a wireless telecommunications service provider. It competes with companies like Verizon Wireless, AT&T Mobility, Sprint, and T-Mobile USA, among others. TDS Telecom provides diversified telecommunications services including wireline and cable broadband, video and voice and hosted and managed services. Wireline operations provide retail telecommunications services to both residential and commercial customers that reside within its respective service territories. Wireline also provides services to wholesale customers, who are primarily interexchange carriers that compensate TDS Telecom for the use of its facilities to originate and terminate their voice and data transmissions. Cable offers advanced video, broadband and voice services utilizing a modernized network. Each of these services has features which can be subscribed to on a stand-alone basis or in a bundle. Cable competes against the incumbent local telephone providers, who primarily offer DSL-based services. HMS provides IT equipment and solutions to meet its business customers' needs across several broad product categories: colocation, hosted and managed-services, cloud services and solutions provider services. HMS operates fault tolerant, continuously maintainable data center facilities. HMS' portfolio of hosted and managed services covers servers, voice and data networks, Microsoft Exchange environments, storage, and service desk capabilities on equipment located both within HMS data centers and at customer locations. The competitors for HMS include large diversified telecommunications and technology companies that target Fortune 500 sized companies as well as smaller independent companies that provide selective fixed services for mid-sized business customers.
