Hunter Communications Expands Broadband Reach in Oregon

The acquisition of OnlineNW and XS Media will allow Hunter to expand its product offering throughout Oregon, including to underserved communities, the buyer said in a statement. Hunter will begin integrating its systems later in 2022, with the three companies operating independently until then, according to the buyer.

Founded in 1992, Hunter is headquartered in Medford, Oregon, and provides fiber optic broadband internet, data, and voice services to businesses and individuals in communities across southern Oregon and northern California, the statement said. Hunter Communications was acquired in 2020 by Grain Management, LLC. The acquisition resulted in a 30 percent growth in Hunter’s workforce; the company now employs more than 180 workers in Oregon, according to the buyer.
