ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- Leading independent communications holding company SureWest Communications (NASDAQ: SURW) announced that effective today it will begin to operate its Everest Broadband unit under the “SureWest” name.

SureWest completed the acquisition of the Kansas City-based broadband triple-play provider on February 13, 2008. To celebrate the integration of Everest under a unified operating name, SureWest Communications is adding a total of 18 new HDTV channels on its network in the Kansas City region over the next 30 days. Additionally, the company is treating its customers to a night of barbeque and baseball at Community America Ballpark, home of the Kansas City T-Bones independent professional baseball team.

“This is an exciting time for our company and for residents served by our Kansas City area operations,” said Steve Oldham, SureWest president and CEO. “SureWest was immediately attracted to Everest because of its employees, its quality of service and its unique personal touch. None of this will change as a result of this integration, and in fact, we hope to make the customer experience even better. We are enhancing the suite of products available to Kansas City area residents and broadening our reach within the region so that even more residential and business customers can enjoy SureWest’s advanced products and services. Demand is extremely high for Everest services and we hope to build on their proud legacy in Kansas City.
