Breezeline Named Top U.S. Multi-System Operator

Quincy, MA, July 25, 2022 – Breezeline, the nation’s eighth-largest cable operator, has been named the Multi-System Operator of the Year by industry publication, Cablefax. Cablefax, which has reported on the cable, broadcasting and telecom industries for more than 30 years, made the announcement in its “Top Ops” magazine published today.  

“While Breezeline’s rebranding caught our editorial team’s attention, the company’s evolution is much deeper than a name change,” said Amy Maclean, editorial director for Cablefax. “The company’s high-growth transformation over the last year—led by smart acquisitions in major markets, strategic overbuilds, the launch of innovative products, and its customer-centric ethos—makes it a leader among its peers.”

Breezeline’s growth initiatives include the 2021 acquisition of the broadband systems of Wide Open West (WOW!) in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, as well as its expansion into multiple communities in New Hampshire, West Virginia and Massachusetts, where it is offering consumers a new choice in providers. 

Breezeline also launched Fiber to the Home (FTTH) with symmetrical internet speeds, cloud-based IPTV (Breezeline Stream TV) and a new managed WiFi solution (WiFi Your Way) for homes and businesses.  It also completed a major rebrand from Atlantic Broadband to Breezeline in January and launched a range of customer experience initiatives, including a new mobile app.

“We are honored to be recognized by Cablefax as Top Operator of the Year,” said Frank van der Post, President of Breezeline. “We thank Breezeline colleagues in every part of our organization for their dedication, hard work and collaborative spirit as we continue our journey of growth and transformation, enriching customers’ lives through the very best connected experiences.”   

Breezeline, a subsidiary of Cogeco Communications Inc., provides Internet, TV, Voice and fiber services to residential and business customers in the 13 states of Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
