Vyve Broadband Completes "Tuck-In" Acquisitions in Oklahoma

Continuing the Disciplined Consolidation of Non-Urban Markets, Lakeview Cable and Oklahoma Assets of Reach Broadband Acquired by Vyve

RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - August 06, 2014) - Vyve Broadband recently completed the acquisition of certain assets of Reach Broadband and all the assets of Lakeview Cable, whose systems complement the Company's existing footprint in Oklahoma. The acquisitions in Eufaula, Cache, Pecan Valley and the surrounding communities will increase homes passed by 7,000, to approximately 310,000.

Vyve Broadband is a next-generation broadband MSO led by President and CEO Jeffrey S. DeMond and EVP and CFO Andrew Kober. The company's aggressive growth plan was first announced through the acquisition of certain assets of Allegiance Communications and James Cable 2013. These recent "tuck-in" transactions further rationalize the company's footprint by adding markets to ongoing infrastructure upgrades. The acquired systems will be upgraded to deliver broadband speeds up to 105Mbps as well as all-digital video technology and a state of the art voice platform, consistent with the Company upgrade strategy across the country. The former Reach and Lakeview systems have been immediately merged into Vyve's existing operations.

"Vyve is laser-focused on creating customer experiences that are unequaled in broadband speed and entertainment value," said Jeffrey DeMond, chief executive officer for Vyve Broadband. "With a Vyve Broadband connection, customers will have access to the wide array of content choices they deserve."

Upgraded networks providing best-in-market, 105 Mbps Internet speeds are already up and running in Vyve markets such as Shawnee, McAlester, Durant (OK), Waycross and Douglas (GA), New Boston (TX) and Ottawa and Ft Riley (KS). By year-end, network upgrades will be complete in additional communities in OK, TX, AR, KS, LA, TN, GA, CO and WY.

Increased Internet speeds in these and other Vyve markets are coordinated with other expanded Vyve offerings, such as Watch TV EverywhereTM -- which Vyve Broadband video customers can use to watch their favorite shows from participating channels anytime, anywhere and on any device -- and the new Vyve HD Guide, powered by TiVo®, which helps users find the exact programming they want, quickly and easily.
