MONTREAL, Canada -- Cogeco Cable Inc. (TSX: CCA) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Atlantic Broadband from ABRY Partners which was announced on July 18, 2012. Formed in 2003, Atlantic Broadband operates cable systems in Western Pennsylvania, Southern Florida, Maryland, Delaware and South Carolina.

Serving about 251,000 Television service customers, Atlantic Broadband is currently the 12th largest cable operator in the United States and provides Analog and Digital Television, as well as High Speed Internet (HSI) and Telephony services.

“This is a very important day for Cogeco Cable as this acquisition marks our entry into the United States market. There are sizable opportunities for growth, including increasing the penetration of the small and mid-sized business segment and maximizing the bundling potential of services in the residential sector. I am very pleased to confirm that Ed Holleran, one of Atlantic Broadband’s Founders, will continue to lead our US operations team as CEO. I would also like to welcome all Atlantic Broadband employees to the extended Cogeco family,” said Louis Audet, President and CEO of Cogeco Cable.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
