SHAWNEE – Executives of Allegiance Communications announced this week final contracts have been signed to complete the purchase of cable systems serving more than 29,000 subscribers.  All of the systems had been owned by Charter Communications.  The new systems will join current Allegiance systems to serve more than 70,000 subscribers. 

The broadband cable system in Stratford is included in the purchase.

Allegiance Chief Executive Officer Bill Haggarty said this acquisition is part of the growth strategy the company is pursuing.

“There has never been a better time to grow a broadband cable operation in small and mid-size towns.  These areas are eager to enjoy the benefits of advanced digital and broadband services.”

Allegiance customers are served by a network of 18 field offices.  “The biggest competitive advantage we have as a cable company is the relationship we have with the customers and communities we serve.  Our service is truly a local effort, and we are proud that our customer service representatives and field technicians are such active participants in their communities.”

 

Although the cable industry is increasingly competitive, Mr. Haggarty sees a bright future for Allegiance.  “The technology that delivers advanced broadband services is equally valuable regardless of city size or geographic location.  We believe there should be no such thing as a digital divide.”

 

Allegiance Communications is headquartered in Shawnee, OK. 

 

Allegiance Communications is partnered with The Wicks Group of Companies, LLC, in New York.
