Compton Communications, a family owned and operated cable television, internet and digital phone services provider out of Utica Ontario, has been sold to Rogers Cable for an undisclosed sum.

The company, which has about 5,500 cable subscribers, first began operation in 1972 delivering television services to Uxbridge Ontario and branched out to the Port Perry area in 1978.

"We are excited to offer more Canadians connected, seamless entertainment experiences by leveraging Compton Communications' state-of-the-art infrastructure and footprint," said Wayne Cramp, vice-president of field operations, Ontario, for Rogers.
