Norfolk Wireless Company Purchased by Colorado-based Provider

NORFOLK – A Norfolk wireless company is under new ownership.

Telebeep Wireless president Tom Schommer announced on Monday that the internet provider has been purchased by Colorado-based Rise Broadband, effective October 1st. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
