David Armistead, senior vice president of Hargray Communications, noted, "In the markets we serve, we take seriously our opportunity and obligation to invest in the local community.  We intend to retain Cable One's local colleagues and will become involved in the community to deliver the same robust suite of residential and commercial services and exceptional customer support we are known for in nearby Pell City, Alabama and across GeorgiaFlorida, and South Carolina."

"We believe Hargray, whose values mirror our own, will be an excellent fit for the Anniston community.  Hargray will be able to use its regional scale to further invest in the Anniston market while continuing to provide Anniston customers with the latest technological advancements and the highest level of customer care," said Julie Laulis, Cable One president and CEO.  "Additionally, and as a result of this transaction, Cable One will have the opportunity to share in Hargray's growth while increasing our opportunities for continued investment."
