BCI Broadband to acquire Allegiance

By The Herald Staff

It appears Ottawa soon will be served by a new broadband Internet provider.

BCI Broadband and Allegiance Communications, Ottawa’s current provider, have signed a definitive agreement under which a newly formed subsidiary of BCI will acquire Allegiance in a transaction expected to close early in 2013.  

Allegiance is an operator of non-urban broadband systems across the Midwestern states of Arkansas, Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma, where the company is based.
