The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved the acquisition of Hawaiian Telcom by Cincinnati Bell, the final approval needed for the deal to close. The deal already received a green light from the Hawai'I Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and that of the Hawai'i Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs' Cable Television Division. The merger also cleared the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act review period and received support from Hawaiian Telcom shareholders. There are now only the last, usual, closing conditions to fulfil before completion.
