Cablecom snaps up Uznach fibre network

18 Dec 2014

Full service provider Cablecom, part of UK-based Liberty Global, has agreed to acquire a fibre-optic network in Uznach in St Gallen canton from the Uznachcable cooperative for an undisclosed sum. The cooperative opted to sell the network to Cablecom, which has an existing partnership with the operator, after its managing board decided that Uznachcable lacked the professional expertise to provide the level of service desired by its customers. The takeover will be effective from 1 January 2015 and will add 2,400 Uznachcable customers to Cablecom’s books.
