Why wait? 1st cable company converts to all-digital

BendBroadband, a cable company in central Oregon, decided to make the move to DTV now, rather than wait for the the Feb. 17th deadline.
“'The transition to an all-digital platform puts BendBroadband in an important strategic position,' (said) BendBroadband President and CEO Amy Tykeson. 'By eliminating carriage of analog signals, we were able to reclaim more than 300 MHz of spectrum (out of 750 MHz) – nearly half – and avoid the significant cost associated with a major system rebuild.'"
