Shentel announces expansion of its affiliate relationship with Sprint

Posted 5 February 2018 12:00 AM by Shentel

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company ("Shentel") (NASDAQ:SHEN) announces that it has closed a transaction to further expand its relationship with Sprint, effective February 1, 2018.

Shentel has signed an Expansion Agreement and amended its Affiliate Agreement with Sprint to expand its affiliate service territory, adding a population (POPs) of approximately 1.1 million in Lancaster County, PA, central Virginia, southwest Virginia, southern West Virginia, and eastern Kentucky with the opportunity to add an additional 200 thousand POPs in eastern KY.  Shentel signed a similar agreement in 2017, expanding service to approximately 500 thousand POPs in the Parkersburg, WV and Cumberland, MD areas.

With this latest expansion, Shentel will have authorization to serve over 7 million POPs in the mid-Atlantic area as a Sprint PCS Affiliate.  In exchange for compensation of $65 million, Shentel will have the right to serve the expanded affiliate service territory and will acquire approximately 105 cell sites, with approximately 67 thousand Sprint postpaid and prepaid subscribers in the expansion area becoming Sprint branded affiliate customers managed by Shentel.  Shentel has committed to spend approximately $56 million over the next three years to expand and improve coverage in the expanded affiliate service territory.

President and CEO  Christopher French commented "This expansion will create additional value for our shareholders and allows Shentel to build networks that will improve coverage between our current service areas and Sprint's metro networks, providing an enhanced experience for both Sprint and Sprint customers managed by Shentel." 



Wireless Network Expansion Effective Feb. 1, 2018
