Bresnan Catches a Rattlesnake


Bresnan Communications said it has completed the acquisition of Cable Montana LLC’s Rattlesnake system for an undisclosed sum.

The Rattlesnake-area system has about 1,200 subscribers.

Bresnan -- which has around 300,000 subscribers in Montana, Colorado, Wyoming and Utah -- said it would connect the former Cable Montana customers to its Missoula, Mont., cable system by the end of the year, which will enable those customers to access advanced services such as video-on-demand, HDTV and digital-video recorders.
Digital-telephone service will also be available within the next year, Bresnan said in a prepared statement.
