The new owner of the Sigecom cable, Internet and phone company has officially changed the name of the company to WOW! Internet, Cable and Phone.

Sigecom was acquired last year by WOW! Wide Open West, a private company owned by Avista Capital Partners with corporate offices in Denver, Colo.

The new WOW! Internet, Cable and Phone name will begin appearing on customers' bills in September, and will replace the Sigecom name on company vehicles and local offices.  Company officials also said all SIGECOM high-speed Internet customers will need to transfer their e- mail accounts over to WOW!

Information on how to change e-mail accounts and other details about the name change are available on Sigecom's Web site,
