Its service territory is largely rural and lies near Gouverneur - and Canton TDS. with headquarters in Chicago, conducts telephone operations through 26 operating subsidiaries in ten states, with a concentration in Wisconsin It serves 41.169 customers through 56.069 telephones in 112 rural and suburban communities Examiner Reed noted that elements of the Edwards sale differed from those involved in 'w<» recenf acqui&tion proceedings involving Con imental Telephone Corporation These cases,\ Examiner Reed noted, \involved an 'excessive' price to be paid for the stock, inaccessibility to management by customers of the independent company . . and . an alleged failure of the holding company to provide an adequate quality of service to customers of other, previously acquired, independent telephone companies \ Dr Reed pointed out that the Edwards acquisition was to be made at book value, that TDS had assured continuity of local management and that Staff witnesses who inspected TDS- owned companies in Vermont found them providing an adequate level of service. During public hearings in Gouverneur and Albany the Browns testified they would be unable to raise the capital needed to finance improvements in Edwards* facilities, including replacement of several cables, and other outside plant and central office additions. TDS indicated its -ability and willingness to supply financing for about $S6,800 in im- provements at once and to prepare a long-range im- provement program. No change in rates U con- templated solely as a result of the transfer, but rate increases may be sought to reflect the additional investment when the needed improvements are completed.
