Knology buys Prairie Wave

Thursday, February 28, 2008

PrairieWave Communications has become Knology. While there is a name change, there will be no change in the quality service that customers have come to know. A ribbon cutting took place at the Storm Lake center on Wednesday to celebrate the name change.

"The name change is the final piece in what has been a year-long process of integrating Knology's communication and entertainment services to our area. Along with the Knology name comes the continuing depth of resources and expertise of a major, innovative communications provider in the market," Scott Schroeder, General Manager, said.

"Our customers' cable, telephone and Internet services will not be affected by the name change," Tony Palermo, VP of Marketing, said. "Eventually all of our high-speed Internet customers will have a new email address, but that will be phased in over time to make the transition as seamless as possible. And Knology customers in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa will benefit from the continued enhancements of our technology platform."

Rodger Johnson, CEO, said, "Knology values honesty, fairness and treating everyone evenhandedly. We also believe in delivering what we promise both professionally and personally while being courteous, respectful and friendly. We work relentlessly as a team, giving customer matters urgent attention. We will 'own' problems and always be responsive, and are truly easy to do business with. It's pretty simple, really. These values are just the best and only way to do business. And it fits perfectly with the Midwestern values that our customers live by and expect."

Knology, Inc., is headquartered in West Point, Ga., is a leading provider of interactive communications and entertainment services.
