                                          EXHIBIT 2

                                      Form 1275, Item C.1

       TDS Metrocom is not a cable operator applying for certification within a cable franchise

area, and Item C.1 is therefore not applicable. TDS Metrocom does not currently offer any video

programming services.



                                     Form 1275, Item C.4

       TDS Metrocom has received the necessary authorization from the FCC to offer interstate

domestic and international telecommunications (see FCC File No. ITC-214-19980210-00094).

Upon receipt of such authority, TDS Metrocom was classified as a non-dominant common

carrier and as such is not required to file a cost allocation manual at the Commission. Item C.4

therefore is not applicable.
