Knology Inc. is a cable company that formed in 1994 by ITC Holding Company, Inc, a telecommunications holding company in West Point, Georgia that also founded Internet service provider Mindspring. In late 1994, shortly after Knology's inception, two employees made a $600,000 investment to make Knology what it is today [ [http://www.knology.com/media/history.cfm Knology: Cable, Phone and High-speed Internet ] ] . Knology was early to market with fiber optic technology. In 1999, Knology merged with Valley Telephone Company. The Knology network serves around a dozen cities in the Southern United States.

Knology also briefly owned the cable franchise in Cerritos, California, which they acquired from GTE, along with a system in Pinellas County, Florida. The Cerritos system has since been sold to Wave Broadband.

On January 9, 2007, Knology announced it had acquired Sioux Falls, South Dakota, based Prairiewave Communications for the sum of $255 million. The merger was officially finalized on April 3, 2007.
