In the meantime, here's the news from the Sacramento Business Journal:
SureWest Communications has launched Digital Phone, the telecommunication company's new Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service and a high-definition digital video recorder product.
SureWest already offers VoIP for business customers, but Digital Phone extends the service to residential customers.
SureWest (Nasdaq: SURW) has been testing the high-definition DVR in region since December. Customer response to the product far exceeded SureWest's expectations, Steve Oldham, SureWest's president and chief executive officer, said in a news release.
Also, SureWest has expanded to 50 high-definition channels, up from 17 a year ago.
