Atlantic Broadband has completed its acquisition of the cable system serving Springfield, WV, from Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA). The acquisition closed on Feb. 15.

Atlantic Broadband plans to both upgrade and integrate the cable system into its existing infrastructure in Hampshire County, WV, to offer new services, including high-speed Internet, digital phone, and expanded video options for both residential and business customers.

"We have had a long commitment to bringing advanced telecommunications services, including broadband Internet, to historically underserved areas," said Curt Kosko, senior vice president and general manager for Atlantic Broadband. "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."

Atlantic Broadband will be reaching out to homes and businesses in the community in the weeks ahead to share information about the company's plans to upgrade the services, as well as the options available for residential and business customers.
