Midcontinent Communications is purchasing the Minnesota and Wisconsin cable systems of US Cable. The systems pass approximately 86,000 homes and serve approximately 33,000 customers. Ninety percent of the US Cable customers are served by a fiber network, fed from a single cable headend.

“The US Cable fiber network is within 100 miles of our fiber network and we plan to connect the two networks, thereby expanding our reach eastward and getting us into the main network operator interconnect location in Minneapolis,” said Pat McAdaragh, Midcontinent’s president and CEO, in a statement.

US Cable and Midcontinent Communications teams will be working together on a smooth transition for customers with an expected closing date around September 30, pending regulatory approval.
