Atlantic Broadband Buys Springfield, W. Va. System from Comcast

Atlantic Broadband said it completed the purchase of a system in Springfield, W. Va., from Comcast on Feb. 15. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

In a press release, Atlantic Broadband said it would work to both upgrade and integrate the former Comcast system into its existing infrastructure in Hampshire County, W. Va., in the coming months.

“We have had a long commitment to bringing advanced telecommunications services, including broadband internet, to historically underserved areas,” Atlantic Broadband SVP and general manager Curt Kosko said in a press release. “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.”
