Access Communications acquires local wireless Internet company

November 04, 2015
Access Communications Co-operative announced the acquisition of a local wireless internet and cable service provider today.

“We’re committed to serving Saskatchewan communities with exceptional communications and entertainment products,” says Jim Deane, CEO, Access Communications Co-operative. “We’re excited about growing our Internet business and expanding our services throughout Saskatchewan.”

The operation, called Little Loon Wireless and Askivision, is based out of Saskatoon with over 3500 customers that are located throughout central Saskatchewan. This investment allows Access to tap into demand for a quality Internet provider in rural areas, and provide services to customers outside of cities, towns and villages.

“Preserving Saskatchewan ownership was a key factor in our decision to approach Access Communications,” says Don Wohlberg, former owner of Askivision and Little Loon Wireless. “Their commitment to their employees, communities and customer service is outstanding.”

Little Loon Wireless and Askivision are Saskatchewan-owned and operated telecommunications companies. Little Loon Wireless is a leading-edge high-speed wireless Internet service provider in rural Saskatchewan. Askivision, a multi-system cable television operator, supplies cable television and wired internet services in small communities.
