Canadian telecoms heavyweight Rogers Communications has agreed to acquire Seaside Communications, a locally operated telecommunications company based in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Established in 1975, Seaside describes itself as a home entertainment and internet services provider serving rural communities and businesses across ten northeastern counties of Nova Scotia. Following the takeover, the smaller company will continue operating under its own brand, with an expanded range of services to be introduced in due course.
A press release adds that ‘Seaside and Rogers are committed to providing reliable high speed broadband to more communities across Nova Scotia. Over the coming months, the companies will share plans to deliver the best possible services and experiences to customers, including bringing faster internet speed options and additional entertainment services such as Rogers Ignite TV.’
