NewWave is 2010 Independent Operator of the Year

NewWave Communications was honored recently with CableFAX Magazine’s 2010 Independent Operator of the Year award. CableFAX Magazine, the industry’s leading trade publication, in association with the National Cable Television Cooperative and the American Cable Association, gives this award in recognition of the nation’s independent cable operator that has best distinguished itself in three specific areas:  (1) Technology;  (2) Operations;  (3) Community Involvement.  The company was featured in the July Top Ops issue of the CableFAX Magazine and was officially recognized at the CableFAX Top Op Awards event.

“Our editors were impressed with NewWave Communications on a number of levels, including customer service, product offerings and employee training,” said Seth Arenstein, editor of CableFAX Magazine.  Arenstein presented the award to NewWave during the Independent Show in Baltimore, Maryland, in late July. “The company’s work in providing cable, voice and Internet to rural communities has been exemplary,” he added.
