Point Broadband Closes on OPS ONE

posted by Mac - 

Point Broadband closed on its transaction today to purchase the fiber  telecommunication assets and operations, known as OPS ONE, from the  City of Opelika, Ala. As part of the agreement, all OPS ONE employees  will transfer to Point Broadband, and the company will lease part of the  Opelika Power Services building at 600 Fox Run Parkway for their  Opelika operations and customer service.  

 

Additionally,  Point Broadband has appointed Bruce Schoonover as General Manager for  its Opelika region operations. Schoonover is a telecommunications  industry veteran, with more than 28 years of experience in the internet,  cable and phone industry. According to Todd Holt, CEO of Point  Broadband, “Bruce’s experience and proven success in this industry will  be vital as we grow our business in Opelika and surrounding area. We are  thrilled to have him on board.” 

 

“I am very excited to  join the Point Broadband organization,” Schoonover said, “and especially  happy to be a part of the excellent team in Opelika. OPS ONE has a  reputation for extraordinary customer care, and I’m looking forward to  continuing the great service and operations started by the City of  Opelika.” 

 

OPS ONE customers should experience a seamless  transition, with no changes other than the name change to Point  Broadband. All plans and rates will remain the same as a result of this  agreement. In addition, there are no changes to programming or local  channel coverage. Customers will be able to pay their bills and add or  make changes to their service in the same location if they prefer to do  this in person.   

 

The company plans to expand fiber  coverage beyond the city limits of Opelika in the near future –  something OPS ONE was unable to do because current Alabama law does not  allow municipal service providers to expand beyond their municipal  jurisdiction. In addition, Point Broadband offers fiber-fed fixed  wireless services to customers in under served areas, currently including  Beauregard, the Gold Hill Community and other parts of Lee County.
