February 28, 2012 5:45 PM ET


Dave Wittwer – CEO

Steve Campbell – CFO, US Cellular


Good afternoon everybody. It's my great pleasure to welcome TDS and US Cellular here today. On my left we have Dave Wittwer, CEO of TDS; we have Steve Campbell, the CFO of US Cellular and Jane McCahon, Head of Investor Relations. Thank you for being here today.

Before we get started just want to please note that all-important disclosures including personal holding disclosures and Morgan Stanley disclosure appear on the Morgan Stanley public website at So if we can start off and maybe this one for both Dave and Steve, 2012 priorities (inaudible) prior to hosting there is a lot of initiative you have that side and then obviously on the wireless side you've been looking at LTE rollout, you have some heavy investment there. So if we could just hit some of the key points and then we'll take it from there.

Dave Wittwer

From a TDS teleconference perspective, couple of key strategic imperatives. One is enabling the network for IPTV. We have plans in 2012 to get about 19 markets that will represent about a third of our residential customers. We think IPTV is important because of the broadband share that it brings with it; it’s a full share that it brings with it as well as the revenue growth.
