Choice Communications Acquires Pennswoods.net and Unveils New Services

Choice Communications LLC (Choice) has announced they have acquired the U.S. Virgin Islands division of Pennswoods.net, a local Internet company that provides dial-up service for the Virgin Islands.
Kevin Hughes, vice president of sales, said the acquisition is a continuation of the Choice commitment to growth and continued service to the people of the territory. Beginning in February, former Pennswoods.net customers, now officially Choice customers, will receive their bills from Choice. Pennswoods.net has separately notified their subscribers of the acquisition.
“We welcome these new subscribers into the Choice family,” said Hughes. “The transition for them will be seamless with no changes in billing, level of service or cost for service. What the Pennswoods.net customers can expect are knowledgeable technical support, attentive service, and access to a wealth of communications and service options that include high-quality data services and products.” Pennswoods.net customers are invited to contact Choice if they have any questions or if they require technical support at 774-0024.
In addition to the recent acquisition, Choice also announced a new benefit option that allows customers to make bill payments online with First Bank at firstbankvi.com or at any First Bank location. “We are pleased with our business relationship with First Bank, which provides all customers additional, convenient methods of bill payment,” Hughes said. “The First Bank bill payment options are in addition to our current suite of payment plans that include online payments at Choice.vi, at any Choice customer service location, through automatic debit from a bank account or credit card, or mailing a check.”
“At Choice, we will continue to work hard to provide the fastest and most reliable data products and services to the people of the V.I. Whether you are a Choice broadband customer or a dial-up customer, our dedication to each of our customers remains the same,” he said.
Choice is the oldest and largest data provider within the U.S.V.I. It offers a diverse portfolio of service offerings that includes licensed high-speed wireless Internet access (broadband), dial-up, and paging and specialized mobile radio (SMR) services.
The company provides licensed, high-speed wireless data access to many local government agencies, businesses and residential customers. The award-winning company has received four consecutive nods as “Best High-Speed Internet Provider in the Virgin Islands, as chosen by the readers of the V.I. Daily News. Choice utilizes cutting edge data equipment from several leading technology manufacturers including Motorola and Hughes.
Choice Communications is a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlantic Tele-Network (ATN), a publicly traded company. For more information regarding Choice Communications, visit the Web site at www.choice.vi.
