GONZALES, La. (April 24, 2017) – EATEL, Ascension Parish based telecommunications provider, and Clear Choice Communications are pleased to announce that Clear Choice and its employees will become members of the EATEL family. The acquisition is scheduled to be completed by early summer.

Clear Choice Communications provides cable TV, Internet and phone services to residential and business customers in Plaquemine, Louisiana.

“The Clear Choice acquisition fits nicely into our market expansion plans,” explained Josh Descant, president of EATEL. “We feel EATEL’s innovative suite of products and services will be well received in the community. EATEL is known for providing excellent customer service and supporting the communities in which it serves. We look forward to offering this same level of support in the Iberville Parish area.” 

Frances Tempanaro, Clear Choice’s General manager will oversee the transition and will continue to manage in the Plaquemine market with an emphasis on Marketing.

“We have been growing for the past five years and joining with the EATEL family will help us speed the process of reaching more neighborhoods. We love our customers, and EATEL’s reputation, excellent customer service, and generous community support were the right fit for us. I’m not going anywhere, and I’m excited about the types of expanded products we will be able to offer residents and businesses on the west side of the river.”, says Tempanaro.

EATEL has strategically expanded its footprint to grow its EATEL Business Division while capturing residential growth in the process. They serve a nationwide customer base through their ultra-secure Data Centers in Baton Rouge and Shreveport which were added with the acquisition of Venyu in August 2013. This has led to expansion of their fiber network in East Baton Rouge and Livingston Parishes. In 2012, EATEL acquired Vision Communications in Lafourche Parish and has expanded into the Houma market since that merger.
