Breezeline cable and internet prepares for transition from WOW!

Breezeline President Frank van der Post

WOW! will officially become Breezeline in a few weeks in Columbus and Cleveland, launching a string of changes to the internet, cable and phone service.

Breezeline, based in Massachusetts, acquired WOW! in the two Ohio markets in September for $1.125 billion, after announcing the acquisition in early 2021. Formerly known as Atlantic Broadband, Breezeline is the nation’s eighth-largest cable operator.

In an exclusive interview with The Dispatch, Breezeline President Frank van der Post outlined changes ahead for its roughly 200,000 internet, 60,000 cable television and 35,000 telephone customers in the Columbus and Cleveland markets.

“We would like to make the whole transition as effortless to customers as possible,” van der Post said. 

WOW! customers in Columbus and Cleveland will transition to Breezeline in May.

When will the switch occur? 

In a description of the upcoming changes, Breezeline said it will “reboot” Columbus cable customers between May 8 and May 10,  and internet and phone customers between May 18 and June 29, causing a “short disruption” to service with each switch. 

What has happened since Breezeline acquired WOW!? 

Van der Post said Breezeline has been upgrading WOW!’s Columbus network.
