IKANO Acquires Assets of Two Texas-Based ISPs CookeNET and CompuWise Customers Access Expanded Range of Features.Written by Debra Labelle
Salt Lake City (June 1, 2005) - IKANO Communications, world’s largest provider of private-label Internet services, has acquired subscriber bases of two Texas-based Internet Service Providers, CookeNET Internet Services and CompuWise Internet Solutions, serving Gainesville and Decatur markets (http://www.cooke.net and http://www.compuwise.net). Both ISPs were previously operated by Morgan Publishing, a digital and print publishing company based in Bowie, Texas.
IKANO will maintain CookeNET and CompuWise names and build on strength of two brands. Subscribers will be able to continue using their existing email addresses.
“With this acquisition, customers of CookeNET and CompuWise will be able to continue using same services that they have become accustomed to as well as a full complement of new services designed to improve their overall Internet experience,” said Henry Smith, president and CEO of IKANO Communications.
Current subscribers of two providers will be able to take advantage of IKANO’s complete library of services and will receive significant upgrades to their existing service at no additional charge. For example, subscribers of either service were limited to using one dial-up number to connect to Internet. As a result of acquisition, however, subscribers will be able to connect to Internet using either same number that they have used in past or they can take advantage of IKANO’s over 3,400 dial-up locations across U.S. and Canada, allowing subscribers to connect while on road.
Some of other features that subscribers will receive at no additional cost include 7 more e-mail addresses with 20 MB more storage per address, 100 MB of online storage compared to 5 MB currently offered, optional ProxyWatch content filtering service, free Wi-Fi access at any HOTSPOTZZ location nationwide, and BrowseBlast Web Accelerator which increases browsing speeds by up to 6 times.
