Seamless Data Systems has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its broadband internet assets — known as Seamless.Net — to KwiKom Communications of Iola.
Seamless will retain ownership of all computer and network technology aspects of the business, including its IT managed service and break/fix offerings.
“We are incredibly excited about this transition and the opportunities it offers to our customers, our staff and our community,” said Jim Belford, president and founder of Seamless. “This sale allows us to focus 100 percent of our talents and efforts into assisting the area business community with their computer, security and networking needs through our managed service offerings.
“We’re grateful and proud to have provided internet coverage to rural Kansas for the past 17 years,” Belford said. “To our internet service customers: Thank you. We value your business and are confident that KwiKom Communications will provide the speed and service you’ve come to expect from your internet service provider.”
Seamless’s wireless internet coverage area includes Emporia, Americus, Reading, Neosho Rapids, Hartford, Olpe, Admire, Miller and the surrounding areas. KwiKom will immediately begin work upgrading the network to enable the offerings of higher speed internet plans to homes and businesses, as well as make phone service available.
Current Seamless Data Systems internet subscribers do not need to take any immediate action, their internet service plans will remain the same through the network transition. KwiKom will continue billing services as normal, and will be contacting subscribers to provide information on how to update account and billing information, and service plan changes as network upgrades are completed in their area.
Seamless Data System subscribers will also have the ability to buy phone service for their home or business, often able to keep their existing phone number.
Seamless Data Systems is a computer and network technology company that has provided computer repair and networking support to Emporia and the surrounding areas since 2001.
KwiKom is a local, fixed wireless and fiber Internet Service Provider, with a growing network area of more than 10,000 square miles, encompassing 20 counties in Eastern Kansas. In addition to Internet, KwiKom provides phone, and coming soon TV service, as well as a wide array of business Internet, phone, PBX, fax, WiFi and hosting services.
