Switzerland: UPC acquires Mellingen cable network

November 6, 2017

UPC has completed a full takeover of the cable network in the old town of the municipality of Mellingen in the canton of Aargau. A large part of the network infrastructure in the municipality of Mellingen was already owned by UPC. Some 300 residents who already use the UPC services will also be able to benefit from UPC’s high-power portfolio in the future. They have already been informed about the change of ownership.

“The municipality of Mellingen is delighted to be handing over the cable network in the old town of Mellingen with its some 300 subscribers to UPC,” says Beat Deubelbeiss, Municipal Secretary of Mellingen. “We want to continue to meet the challenges and demands posed by digitisation in the future. But that is only possible with the corresponding know-how, adequate power and the will to innovate. After a long and successful partnership, we are certain that we are taking the right step towards securing these factors by handing over our network to UPC.”
