Omega Communications Inc., one of Connecticut’s largest independent
Internet Service Providers, successfully acquired two web-hosting
companies through 2004 and continues to seek smaller to mid-size web
hosting companies in 2005.
In 2004, Southington, CT based Omega Communications Inc. shifted into
acquisition mode and acquired two web-hosting companies. The customer
base of each of the two acquired companies was successfully migrated
into Omega’s existing infrastructure in a minimal time period and
nearly transparent to the customer base. The two companies consisted of
roughly 2,000 customers with a variety of web hosting, Internet and
“The two acquisitions in 2004 were a success mainly because of the due
diligence that took place and the overall staff at Omega”, says Greg
Angelillo, VP Business Development. “The technical and finance staff
were pivotal to the success and without the extra efforts from each
employee, the migration onto our data center servers and our billing
software could have been a nightmare for us as well as our new
customers”, Angelillo adds.
The web hosting industry is a very saturated industry with many
“virtual” hosting companies. These “virtual” web-hosting companies are
mainly made up of resellers of other web-hosting companies who then
rely on third parties for their billing, customer care and technical
services. Omega is a brick-and-mortar ISP with all of these services,
and more, in-house. If a service Omega provides its customer base goes
down, they are not at the mercy of any third party and potential
Omega’s experienced and certified engineers diagnose and repair
downages in house. Omega’s committed up-time for hosting services to
its customers is 99.9%. That means that if you host a website at Omega,
it will be available to the Internet 99.9% of the time. Omega also
provides its customers with a 24/7, toll-free customer care hotline.
Omega prides itself in offering the best possible web-hosting and web
development services, at the best possible price, with the best
possible customer care.
Omega’s goal is to acquire several more web hosting companies over the next 12-24 months. Interested parties should visit www.omegacomminc.com/buy-isp.html, or contact Greg Angelillo at 860-276-8504, option 1, extension 101.
