Hargray said that its networks in the southeast are expanding. “In the markets we serve, we take seriously our opportunity and obligation to invest in the local community,” David Armistead, Senior Vice President of Hargray Communications, said in a press release. “We intend to retain USA Communications’ local colleagues after closing and invest heavily in USA Communications’ network to deliver the same high-quality suite of residential and commercial services and customer support we are known for in South Carolina and Georgia.”

Hargray has made several other acquisitions in recent years, both before and after the company was itself acquired by an investment group in May of 2017.
