Cogeco Cable acquires Montreal’s MTO Telecom

Cogeco Cable announced the acquisition of MTO Telecom, a
private telecommunications provider in the Greater Montreal Area and the
Province of Quebec.

MTO Telecom will be integrated with Cogeco Data Services
(CDS), Cogeco Cable’s business communications subsidiary.

With over 1500 kilometres of fibre, MTO Telecom covers
the island of Montreal and serves carrier, enterprise and public sector
customers. Offering high-performance Ethernet broadband connectivity services
and one of the densest and deepest fibre footprints in the Greater Montreal
Area, MTO Telecom has built out one of the most advanced IP networks in Canada.

“MTO Telecom is a prominent player in the business
communications market in Montreal and is well positioned to contribute
positively to our organization. Combined with the recent acquisition of Quiettouch
Inc., this transaction provides CDS with a unique opportunity to expand its
footprint and offer its large business customers a broader network and range of
services,” said Louis Audet, President and CEO, Cogeco Cable.

The combination of Cogeco Data Services and MTO Telecom
brings together network infrastructure that enables Cogeco Data Services to
expand its reach particularly in Montreal, adding to its already extensive
network spanning Ontario and Quebec.

Combined with the recently acquired Quiettouch, the
acquisition of MTO will provide Cogeco Data’s customers with access to an
extended network and a broader range of services, including high-bandwidth
network infrastructure, managed connectivity and voice services, data centre
facilities, colocation and managed IT services,” said Tony Ciciretto,
president, Cogeco Data Services.
