Knology to Offer Enhanced Messaging


Competitive broadband provider Knology Inc. of West Point, Ga., will offer
its customers enhanced voice messaging under the terms of an agreement made with
Glenayre Technologies Inc.

Atlanta-based Glenayre will allow the broadband provider to sell its
customers voice messaging with customizable features, such as programmable
passwords that increase security and playback options, like allowing for
recovery of deleted messages.

Knology will initially offer enhanced voice services in its Southeast
markets, including Augusta, Columbus and West Point, Ga.; Montgomery,
Huntsville, Valley and Lanett, Ala.; Panama City, Fla.; Charleston, S.C.; and
Knoxville, Tenn.

Since the Glenayre technology platform provides a centralized subscriber
database, it consolidates that information and reduces administration.

Its open architecture will allow Knology to rapidly develop and deploy
customized applications, according to the technology provider.

Knology added 14,669 on-net connections for the third quarter ending Sept.
30. That represents a 37 percent increase in overall connections from the same
quarter last year, with growth in each of its video, telephone and high-speed
Internet product lines, according to the company's third-quarter report.

The growth contributed to the company's first quarter with positive EBITDA
