PrimaCom expands footprint through cableco acquisition

27 Jan 2014

German regional cable operator PrimaCom has announced the acquisition of Sy-Fra Antennentechnik, a cable company based in the east-central town of Plauen. Sy-Fra has deployed and operated cable networks for around 20 years, serving around 22,000 households mainly in Saxony and Thuringia, but also in Bavaria and other states. PrimaCom, which rejected an unsolicited takeover offer by Tele Columbus in November last year, serves around one million homes in small to medium-sized cities in 15 states, notes TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
