Southern Vermont Cable Company was established in 1988 by its president Ernie Scialabba. After purchasing the Newfane and Putney, Vermont cable systems from Gateway Cablevision, he quickly doubled subscriber base in 3 years.
Ernie brings more than 33 years of experience in the industry which has enabled him to design, upgrade, expand and rebuilt the systems. Within the last 2 years, the company has also purchased cable systems servicing the towns of Townshend and Dummerston, Vermont.
In 2003 Southern Vermont Cable launched its multi-tier broadband Internet service. This fiber optic-based high-speed service provides speeds up to 7.0 Meg as well as email and web hosting services.
