Wittenberg-Based Communications Company Buys Antigo Business

December 22, 2011

An area communications company is expanding its presence in Antigo after purchasing a local computer business. Wittenberg Telephone Company announced Wednesday it has purchased Computer Frontier, and the company will be operating under the new name Cirrinity.

Wittenberg Telephone is no stranger to Antigo after it bought the city's broadband utility back in June of 2010.

In a press release on the acquisition, Wittenberg Telephone CEO Al Mahnke said that they are committed to providing their services to the City of Antigo. He continues "we know the community will benefit, and we anticipate this will further attract businesses to the area."

Computer Frontier, which had been around since 1997, provided computer sales and services along with wireless internet service. Former owner Brice Widener has been hired by Wittenberg Telephone to serve customers in the Antigo area.

Mahnke also said in the press release that current customers of Computer Frontier will not experience any interruptions in their service during the transition. Anyone with questions about the new company can call 888-999-0334.
