Falcon follow-up

I spoke with Falcon Broadband CFO Tim Coutts to get a few more details on Falcon’s merger with Englewood-based Prime Time Communications.

Coutts emphasized that the merger would mean “stepping on the accelerator” to provide service to existing communities, focusing on the Powers Boulevard corridor.

As far as Falcon’s existing customers are concerned, Coutts said they shouldn’t see any immediate changes. The combined company will still use the Falcon name here.

Coutts said Prime Time was interested in Falcon founder Randy DeYoung’s cable infrastructure experience, while Falcon should benefit from Prime Time’s internet television expertise.

“One of the things that I think made us attractive to them was some experience they didn’t have,” Coutts said. “In particular the construction aspect.”

Both DeYoung and Coutts will remain with the merged company.
