Wight Cable North re-branding to Smallworld
With the launch of Virgin Media, many think the UK has a single cable TV supplier, but this is not the case. Wight Cable North is still going and is in the middle of a re-branding exercise whereby their name will change to Smallworld. Wight Cable North provides a service in West Scotland and North England. A lot of people outside the coverage areas probably remember them as Omne.
The name change is also apparently linked to new High Definition TV digital set-top boxes and faster broadband services. A website providing more detail on Wight Cable while their main site undergoes its make-over is www.letscommunicate.co.uk/asmallworld.
