LIMA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2020--

Watch Communications today announced the acquisition of Sit-CO, a fiber and fixed-wireless broadband solutions provider based in Evansville, Indiana. This acquisition expands the Watch network to Evansville, Princeton, Mount Vernon, Boonville and other rural areas of Southwestern Indiana.

Moreover, Watch is committed to improving the experience of existing Sit-CO customers through phased improvements to our newly-acquired infrastructure.”

This acquisition increases Watch’s subscriber base by over 2,200 residential and enterprise customers and brings a substantial facility for the expansion of its data center operations.
