WOW Means Business In Maryland

WOW! Business, the commercial services arm of WideOpenWest, has extended service to Anne Arundel County, Md., entering the market through a majority ownership interest in Broadstripe.

The company said it will start to offer commercial-class Internet, voice, data and cloud services this month to “thousands” of  businesses in Annapolis, Pasadena, Millersville and other parts of the county nearest its 200-plus mile coaxial and fiber-optic network. WOW! Business said it will become the operator of business services in the market while Broadstripe will continue to serve residential customers.

With the addition of Anne Arundel County, WOW! Business now serves 19 markets in 11 states, including Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Tampa and other major cities, the company said.

“The ongoing commitment to economic development and businesses in Anne Arundel County is phenomenal, from family-owned small businesses to large corporations, and presents WOW! Business with an ideal market opportunity in a key strategic state for us,” said Brad Cheedle, senior vice president of WOW! Business, in a statement.

WOW! Business owns and operates more than 40,000 miles of local fiber-optic and coaxial networks in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
