Lexington, KY – People and businesses using Insight email addresses through insightbb.com will have to change them by July 8 or have their emails shut down. As part of Insight’s sale and transition to Time Warner Cable, both myinsight.com and insightbb.com will be discontinued early next week.
Customers can create new accounts with Time Warner Cable at registration.rr.com. Those with current Insight accounts can transfer over their address book entries and messages to their new accounts by entering the Insight address and password when prompted, according to a release from Time Warner Cable.
Time Warner Cable announced its plans to purchase Insight Communications, then Kentucky’s largest telecommunications company, in August of 2011. The $3 billion deal brought what was then the tenth largest cable provider in the nation under the moniker of Time Warner Cable, the nation’s second largest cable provider.
At the time of the sale, Insight had approximately 537,000 high-speed data customers, 679,000 cable television subscribers and 297,000 phone customers in markets including Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.
Trailing only Comcast nationally, Time Warner Cable has more than 14 million customers around the country and was the second largest provider in the Kentucky and first in Ohio, another area that had a strong Insight presence.
