WideOpenWest says today that it completed the transfer application forms for 115 Ameritech New Media franchises. All forms were filed by hand delivery to each local franchise authority earlier this week, WOW says.
The filings come as part of WOW's May 23 agreement to purchase Ameritech's cable systems in the Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit and Chicago metro areas.
Local franchises have 120 days to act on the transfer applications. Top management will visit each city during the next several weeks to give company overviews, answer questions and start building cooperative relationships, CEO Mark Haverkate says.
