F&B COMMUNICATIONS PURCHASES CABLE TV SYSTEM
F&B Communications, the local telecommunications provider, recently
purchased the Lowden Mediacom cable TV system.
The sale adds subscribers to F&B Communications’ existing
cable TV subscriber base in Lowden.

service,” said F&B Communications General Manager Ken
F&B Communications was approached by Mediacom in early 2003
about their interest in selling the Lowden system so they could
focus their energy in other areas.
“The decision to purchase the system was a natural move,”
said Laursen. “We are already actively involved in the community
and offer residents many communications choices, including cable
TV, telephone service and high-speed DSL Internet.”
The sale closed Nov. 21 and previous Mediacom customers have been
connected to the F&B Communications cable TV system since the
Mediacom signal was discontinued.
Former Mediacom customers now have access to local information channel
20, a community message board featuring local news, weather and
confident customers will be pleased with the added value that local
information channel 20 brings to their channel lineup,” said
Marketing Manager Aaron Horman.
A strong local presence is one more advantage former Mediacom customers
will notice. The F&B Communications business office is located
five miles to the west in Wheatland and the company is frequently
involved in community events and projects.
“If customers ever have a concern or question, they know we’re
just down the road,” said Laursen.
