Set by Communications Technology’s editorial team, the criteria for the selection of the System of the Year include the following: A continuous push to upgrade and improve technical operations, innovation in testing and development, high customer satisfaction, advanced services deployment and success in non-traditional markets.

“Buckeye CableSystem is at the forefront of cable technology, offering the same kinds of residential and commercial services as do larger MSOs and maintaining majority marketshare in a competitive broadband environment,” said Debra Baker, editor of Communications Technology magazine. “Its dedication to customer service has won it kudos from its local constituency in survey after survey.”

“Buckeye is a true operator in every sense of the word,” commented Brad Mefferd, president of Buckeye CableSystem. “We care about the community and the people we serve, and we are dedicated to first-class service.” Added Executive Vice President/CTO Joe Jensen, “We have an engaged management team, we make decisions and we move forward. We have to do everything the bigger companies do, but with less money and fewer people.”

Previous winners of System of the Year include Sunflower Broadband (2010), TWC Carolina (2008), Cox Orange County/Palos Verdes (2007) and Comcast Washington Region (2006).

Buckeye CableSystem will be recognized for its achievement Dec. 8, 2011, at an awards luncheon at the Grand Hyatt in New York City. It also will be featured in the December 2011 issue of Communications Technology magazine.
