Hubris Communications Acquires SKTnetWorks
March 16, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WICHITA, KS - March 16, 2010 - Hubris Communications is expanding their service line to include telecommunications and Ethernet services in the greater Wichita area with the acquisition of SKTnetWorks. SKTnetWorks provides business customers telephone, Internet, private network and data back-up services. The transfer is expected to be complete before the end of the month.
Hubris Communications will provide the same services offered by SKTnetWorks and will serve customers from the facility where the SKTnetWorks core network equipment is now located. The transition to Hubris Communications from SKTnetWorks will be transparent to existing customers.
"Our customer service focused business standards, coupled with new flexible service solutions, will provide the Wichita business market superior communication technology at an unmatched value." - Chris Owen, President, Hubris Communications
This acquisition allows Hubris Communications to offer voice, Ethernet and expanded data services to small and medium-sized businesses in the greater Wichita area. Over the past fifteen years, Hubris Communications has become well respected across Kansas for providing customer-friendly internet service. Owen points out that Hubris Communications has built a quality local Internet service for the benefit of Kansans and will work to improve the customer experience with this acquisition.
"Corporate giants just can't provide the same level of personal service we give local businesses. It used to be that you could call your service provider and someone would actually answer the phone. We still do business that way. No auto-attendants or overseas call centers. Just real live humans right here in Wichita." - Owen
SKT made the decision to sell SKTnetWorks in order to focus on their core business. This transaction will not impact SKT's traditional telephone, Internet and cable TV service areas or any other affiliate business of Southern Kansas Telephone, including SKT Business Communication Solutions.
