Consolidated Communications said the sale will align with the company’s strategic asset review and will enable the company to focus on its core broadband regions.

Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSL) revealed that it has agreed to sell its Ohio assets to Middle Point Home Telephone Co. (MPH), an affiliate of Hanson Communications, Inc.

Financial terms of the deal, which Consolidated expects to close once the customary regulatory approvals are acquired by the end of the year, were not disclosed. However, the company promises more information during its third quarter 2021 earnings call.

The Ohio operations contributed approximately $9 million of revenue in fiscal 2020 and includes approximately 4,000 access lines and 3,900 Internet connections. Nevertheless, Consolidated said the sale will align with the company’s strategic asset review and will enable the company to focus on its core broadband regions.

“Our family is very excited to enter into this agreement and expand our Ohio service area,” said Bruce Hanson, treasurer and owner of Hanson Communications. “We look forward to serving these customers and expect a seamless transition upon closing.”

MPH is based in Middle Point, OH; it doesn't have a website.
