TDS Broadband Service LLC, a subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems Inc., and operated by TDS Telecom, on Wednesday completed its acquisition of Crestview Cable Communications.

TDS Telecom, the parent company of BendBroadband, announced in August its intention to acquire Crestview, which is based in Prineville and has a service area of more than 21,000 homes in six communities. Jim Butman, chief operating officer of TDS Telecom, said the company will be making “significant investments” to upgrade the network infrastructure.

TDS plans to expand fiber-to-the-home in the La Pine area and accelerate broadband speeds and modernize video products in Prineville, Madras and across Jefferson and Crook counties.
