IKANO / CookeNET & CompuWise

IKANO Communications, the world's largest provider of private-label Internet services, has acquired the subscriber bases of two Texas-based Internet Service Providers, CookeNET Internet Services and CompuWise Internet Solutions, serving the Gainesville and Decatur markets. Both ISPs were previously operated by Morgan Publishing, a digital and print publishing company based in Bowie, Texas.

IKANO will maintain the CookeNET and CompuWise names and build on the strength of the two brands. Subscribers will be able to continue using their existing email addresses.

"With this acquisition, customers of CookeNET and CompuWise will be able to continue using the same services that they have become accustomed to as well as a full complement of new services designed to improve their overall Internet experience," said Henry Smith, president and CEO of IKANO Communications.
