SureWest asset consolidation driving Consolidated Communications

Consolidated Communications (Nasdaq: CNSL) is actually becoming a more consolidated company as it blends the consumer, commercial and wholesale business units it acquired when it purchased SureWest last July. It is a process Consolidated COO Bob Udell sees as a key part of advancing the company's strategy of levering its common assets across customer groups and accelerating growth in key markets. Udell explains that, and more, to FierceTelecom's Sean Buckley, as detailed in this hot seat interview.
