On April 4, 2016, South Central Communications (SCC) and Cable One announced they have entered into an agreement whereby SCC will acquire the Page, Arizona cable TV system from Cable One. With the acquisition of the Cable One system, SCC will have the ability to expand its Utah-based communications network and bring high speed internet services to the entire Page community, including both business and residential customers.
SCC President and CEO Michael East said, “I am excited to have this agreement in place. As a result of this agreement, SCC will now own the last-mile facilities (connection to the home) necessary to provide robust and reliable broadband internet to every member of the community.”
With the purchase of Cable ONE’s extensive and robust fiber and coax network, SCC will be able to provide high speed internet services, with speeds up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps), to businesses throughout Page.
“As a result of this acquisition, Page area residents can look forward to receiving great internet service,” East said. “Once the acquisition is complete, we will be introducing service plans that meet the needs of all members of the community, both the heavy users as well as the moderate users of the internet—and we will do so at price points that are competitively priced.”
Along with superior quality service, SCC is known for skilled customer care and knowledgeable technical staff. A local company since 1953, SCC has built its reputation on providing customers with reliable service at affordable prices.
“Reliable internet and increased broadband speeds are critical for sustainable economic development, including education, health care and government services,” East said. “We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to serving the residents of Page. I’m especially excited about the tremendous community and economic opportunities it will provide.”
“It’s been an honor and privilege for Cable ONE and our associates to serve the residents of Page,” said Cable ONE President and Chief Operating Officer, Judie Laulis. “We believe going forward, SCC will do a wonderful job in bringing the highest quality high speed internet to the Page community.”
