Wow Internet, Cable & Phone spokesman Royce Ard tells the media that South Dakota customers will still get a bill from Knology, and it takes a few months for the transaction to fully go through.

Wow announced Wednesday that it is buying Knology for $750.5 million, partly to broaden its geographic reach.

Wow, which is owned by private equity firm Avista Capital Partners, offers cable TV, Internet and telephone services in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana. Knology serves the Southeastern and Midwest U.S. The combined company would have more than 800,000 customers.

The company has a call center in Sioux Falls that employs 150 people.
