Atlantic Broadband will expand its footprint this summer in South Carolina to Wagener and surrounding communities, including Salley, Perry and Springfield.

The company will provide residents and businesses with cable TV, phone and Internet service as part of its value-packed bundles, or as standalone offerings.

“The contractors are here, and the work has begun,” said Wagener Mayor Miller. “As I understand it, the installation should be complete here in August. It should be up and running by September. We all know about deadlines, so those are projected times.”

Miller said Atlantic Broadband’s move into the area is good news.

“We need to have optimal service if we expect to attract businesses, small industry and things like that,” he said.

Through Atlantic Broadband’s expansion, residents will soon have access to communication and entertainment services through one local provider where customers can choose from TV, Internet and phone bundle prices.

“Expanding to Wagener and surrounding areas allows us to provide residents and businesses with a one-stop shop for their communication and entertainment needs, something previously unavailable,” said Atlantic Broadband’s Vice President and General Manager Sam McGill. “In addition to the availability of fast Internet, cable TV and phone, residential customers will also have access to the TiVo service from Atlantic Broadband, which provides game-changing entertainment as part of our bundle offerings.”

“The Wagener-Perry-Salley area has long been under-served by cable and broadband services,” said S.C. Rep. Bill Taylor, R-Aiken. “In today’s economy, expanded broadband services are essential to residents and businesses for the opportunity to prosper. I am delighted to see a company with local roots deliver Wagener and surrounding communities faster Internet, phone and TV services.”
