Atlantic Broadband acquires Springfield, WV system with plans for major product enhancements
Planned upgrades will allow for future deployment of High Speed Internet and other advanced services
QUINCY, Mass., February 20, 2019 – Atlantic Broadband has completed the acquisition of the cable system serving Springfield, West Virginia from Comcast Corporation. The acquisition closed on Friday, February 15, 2019.
In the months ahead, Atlantic Broadband will work to both upgrade and integrate the cable system into its existing infrastructure in Hampshire County, West Virginia. This will allow Atlantic Broadband to offer a host of new services, including high-speed internet, digital phone, and expanded video options for both residential and business customers.
“We have had a long commitment to bringing advanced telecommunications services, including broadband internet, to historically underserved areas,” said Curt Kosko, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Atlantic Broadband. “Until now, residents and businesses here have been restricted to a limited package of video channels, with no broadband internet or phone. As a result of this acquisition, the Springfield community will soon enjoy the very best video, internet and phone services available, all delivered over an advanced, fiber-rich network.”
Atlantic Broadband will be reaching out to homes and businesses in the community in the weeks ahead to share information about the company’s plans to upgrade the services, as well as the options available for residential and business customers.
