Trevose, Pa. -- Bresnan Communications plans to deploy
WorldGate Communications Inc.'s Internet-over-cable service in selected Minnesota
markets beginning in January.
Rochester, Minn., will be the first of several markets to
be rolled out during the first quarter, with total deployment in areas passing about
100,000 homes, the companies said.
Bresnan and WorldGate announced a multiyear affiliation
agreement in May to make the WorldGate service available to more than 100,000 Bresnan
homes in selected systems.
Bresnan said at the time that the service would complement
its existing offering of high-speed Internet access over cable modems aimed at PC users.
