Wave Broadband, a gigabit fiber and broadband services company, announced today that it has acquired National Voice & Data, LLC dba ReallyFast.Net (“ReallyFast”). ReallyFast is a Seattle-based internet service provider that delivers high-speed connectivity to residential and commercial customers in multi-unit residential and office buildings throughout the Seattle area. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed and it is effective immediately.
In 2013, Wave expanded its services through the acquisition of Spectrum Networks which included the CondoInternet division that has provided gigabit-speed connectivity to apartment and condominium buildings, as well as fiber to single-family homes, since 2008. Today, Wave built upon its leadership in that area with the addition of ReallyFast, while also strengthening its rapidly growing business services division.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to bring our high-speed internet connectivity services to even more residents and businesses in the Seattle area,” said Steve Weed, Wave CEO. “The team at ReallyFast shares our core belief that the number one focus is keeping the customer happy, and combined with the scale of Wave’s local resources, together we will thrive.”
Wave is a leading provider of video, internet and phone services on the West Coast, currently serving more than 420,000 residential and commercial customer relationships in Washington, Oregon and California. Formed in 2003, the company has established a reputation for high quality service, growing both organically and by expanding its footprint to new communities through acquisitions and building new fiber. This is the company’s 17th acquisition to-date. Wave was recently recognized by PC Magazine for offering the fastest internet connectivity in the Northwest.
“Joining forces with Wave will allow ReallyFast’s employees to continue providing our residential and business customers with the high-quality personalized service they rely on, for the long-term,” said ReallyFast’s President, Joe Erickson.
Transition plans will not impact current ReallyFast customers: the company’s services will continue without interruption as operations are merged with Wave during the coming months. Both Wave and ReallyFast have expressed their commitment to ensuring the smoothest transition possible. Current ReallyFast customers can call 1.855.345.FAST with any questions regarding their service.
