("Radiate"), entered into an agreement to acquire all the outstanding membership interests of Wave Holdco, LLC ("Wave") from the holders thereof (the "Transaction"). WaveDivision IV, LLC, a subsidiary of Wave, currently holds a franchise to offer video service in your community. Radiate and Wave believe that the Transaction offers tremendous prospects for continued enhancements to the system and services available to customers in Port Orchard. When the Transaction is consummated, only the indirect control of your community's franchisee will have changed. Your community's franchise will continue to be held by WaveDivision IV, LLC, the same legal entity that holds the franchise today. Following the closing of the Transaction, WaveDivision IV, LLC agrees that it will continue to provide service pursuant to the terms of that franchise. However, it will do so under the ownership and indirect control of Radiate. Radiate is a holding company that is majority owned and controlled by the principals of TPG Global, LLC (together with its affiliates, "TPG"). TPG has extensive experience with global public and private investments and is one of the most active private equity investors in the Internet ecosystem. Radiate, through its indirect subsidiaries RCN Telecom Services, LLC and Grande Communications Networks LLC, provides digital television, high-speed Internet, and voice communications services to approximately 656,000 subscribers in the District of Columbia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Texas, led by an experienced management team from Patriot Media Consulting, LLC. The Transaction will bring three smaller independent, competitive providers of video, voice and Internet services under one roof, offering even stronger competition to the larger, well - established providers in the marketplace. Following closing, Radiate will combine its resources June 16, 2017 pg. 2 and expertise with Wave's knowledge of the local cable marketplace to build upon the successes of Wave and further enhance the customer experience in your community. In accordance with the terms of federal law, the rules of the FCC, and the franchise, we have enclosed for your review the required number of copies of FCC Form 394. FCC Form 394 is designed to provide you with the information necessary to assess the financial, legal, and technical qualifications of Radiate to hold indirect control of the franchise. As part of this filing, you are receiving a copy of the agreement, and financial, legal and technical information about Radiate, as well as all other required information. Certain of this information, as designated therein, is confidential and not routinely made available to the public, and its dissemination would be harmful to Radiate's business interests. Pursuant to FCC Form 394, these materials must be maintained as confidential by you and any or all of your agents. Also enclosed is a copy of the Public Interest Statement that was attached to our filing with the FCC for approval of the Transaction. Under the FCC rules, you have 120 days from the date you receive this information to consider the application. No action on your part is required; should you choose not to take any action within this 120 day period, under federal law the application will be deemed granted.

The Preliminary Statement shall become final and binding upon the parties on the 30th day following delivery thereof (provided, that such 30-day period shall be automatically extended for the period (if any) during which Sellers' Representative and its advisors have not been permitted to review the working papers of Purchaser and its independent auditors or otherwise been granted access as required pursuant to this Section 1.07(b)), unless Sellers' Representative gives written notice of its disagreement with the Preliminary Statement (a "Notice of Disagreement") to Purchaser prior to such date (or on such earlier date on which Sellers' Representative may deliver to Purchaser written notice that it has no disagreements with the Preliminary Statement); provided, that each of Purchaser and Sellers' Representative shall direct the Escrow Agent to release any amounts not in dispute to the appropriate party. The Notice of Disagreement shall specify in reasonable detail the nature of any disagreement so asserted and only include disagreements based on mathematical errors or based on Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness, Unpaid Transaction .Fees and Change of Control Payments not being calculated in accordance with this Agreement. If a Notice of Disagreement is given by Sellers' Representative in a timely manner, then the Preliminary Statement (as revised in accordance with this sentence) shall become final and binding upon the parties on the earlier of (i) the date Sellers' Representative and Purchaser .resolve in writing any differences they have with respect to the matters specified in the Notice of Disagreement and (ii) the date any disputed matters specified in the Notice of Disagreement are finally resolved in writing in accordance with Section 1.07(c) (Preliminary Statement, .Dispute .Resolution Mechanism) by a nationally recognized public accounting firm agreed upon in writing by the Purchaser and the Sellers' Representative which, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Purchaser and Sellers' Representative, does not have any audit, tax, consulting or other material relationship with Purchaser, the Company or the Sellers or any of their respective affiliates (the "Accounting Finn").

If during such 30-day period Sellers' Representative and .Purchaser are unable to reach such agreement, each. of Sellers' Representative and Purchaser shall within ten days thereafter furnish, at its own expense, to the 7 Accounting Firm and substantially simultaneously to the other a written statement of its position with respect to each of the disputed items or amounts identified in the Notice of Disagreement that remain unresolved (the "Unresolved Matters"). Within five (5) Business Days after the expiration of such ten (10) day period, each of the Purchaser and the Sellers' Representative may deliver to the Accounting Firm its response to the other's position on the Unresolved Matters; provided, that it delivers a copy thereof substantially simultaneously to the other. With each submission in accordance with the foregoing, each of Purchaser and the Sellers' Representative may also furnish to the Accounting Finn such other information and documents as it deems relevant or such information and documents as may be requested by the Accounting Firm; provided, that it delivers a copy thereof substantially simultaneously to the other. Purchaser and Sellers' Representative shall thereafter promptly cause the Accounting Firm to review the relevant portions of this Agreement, the Preliminary Statement, the Notice of Disagreement and the Unresolved Matters for the purpose of calculating Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness, Unpaid Transaction Fees and Change of Control Payments in accordance with this Agreement. In making any such calculation, (i) the Accounting Firm shall act as an arbitrator, (ii) the Federal Rules of Evidence Rule 408 shall apply to any discussions related to the Notice of Disagreement between Purchaser and Sellers' Representative during such 30-day period and (ii.i) the Accounting .Firm (A) shall base its decision solely on the provisions of this Agreement and on written submissions by Purchaser and the Sellers' Representative and their respective representatives and not by independent review, (B) shall not permit or authorize ex parte communications, discovery or hear testimony, (C) shall calculate de novo only the Unresolved Matters, (D) shall not assign a value to any such Unresolved Matter greater than the greatest value for such item or less than the smallest value for such item set forth in the Preliminary Statement and the Notice of Disagreement, (E) with respect to any item not disputed in the Notice of Disagreement, shall apply the value ascribed thereto in the Preliminary Statement, and (F) with respect to any item disputed in the Notice of Disagreement but resolved by Sellers' Representative and Purchaser after delivery of the Notice of Disagreement, shall apply the value agreed upon by Sellers' Representative and Purchaser.

Department of Revenue, State of Oregon, Defendant. Complaint filed on October 29, 2009, in the Oregon Tax Court, Magistrate Division (Property Tax). This action is an appeal of Opinion and Order No. PTU 2009-004 issued by the Defendant on July 31, 2009, with respect to the Company's 2009-2010 property tax assessment, which utilized a central assessment methodology that takes intangible assets of the taxpayer into consideration. Proceedings in the Company's suit have been stayed pending resolution of essentially identical claims brought by Comeast. Comcast appealed the outcome of its litigation to the Oregon Supreme Court. On October 2, 2014, the Oregon Supreme Court ruled that Comcast's intangibles can be assessed and the Oregon Department of Revenue ("OR DOR") announced its intent to issue clarifying regulations regarding the assessment of intangible assets. On December 18, 2014, the OR DOR announced that "after consultation with the Governor's office, the department has made the decision to delay adoption of the proposed clarifying regulations until after the 2015 legislative session to allow time for additional discussion and legislative action regarding issues related to central assessment in Oregon." Following the Company's filing of a request for a conference with the Director of the OR DOR on June 11, 2015, the OR DOR issued Opinion and Order No. PTU 2015-024 on July 31, 2015, rejecting the Company's legal arguments, and acknowledging that the Company had exhausted its administrative remedies with the Director, thereby allowing appeal to the Oregon Tax Court. On October 26, 2015, the Company filed a complaint in the matter with the Oregon Tax Court, Magistrate Division. On .December 23, 2015, the Company provided a draft, and directed the OR DOR to file with the tax court, a Joint Motion to Hold Proceedings in Abeyance, pending resolution of Comcast v. Dept. of Revenue, State of Oregon (the "Comcast Dispute"). Proceedings resumed in the Comcast case on April 21, 2015, following the Oregon Tax Court's order establishing the scope of issues to be decided upon remand from the Supreme Court. After .remand, the Oregon Tax Court entered an Order in the Comcast Dispute on September 17, 2016, in which it determined that the OR DOR's switch to central assessment does not create an exception to Measure 50's .limit of an annual 3% increase in the maximum assessed value of a taxpayer's assets. As of April 7, 2017, the case remains pending. In 2016, prior to the entry of the Tax Court's September 17 Order, the OR DOR issued a tax assessment to the Company based on central assessment calculation. On June 20, 2016, the Company requested a conference and again. request that the assessment be withdrawn based on its objection to the central assessment method. On October 1.2, 2016, the OR DOR issued an Opinion and Order rejecting the Company's request that the Department withdraw its assessment. The Department determined that the Company had exhausted its administrative remedies and could seek redress from the tax court. Accordingly, on December 29, 2016, the Company filed a complaint with the Oregon Tax Court, Magistrate Division. On or about February 28, 2017, the Company and the OR DOL filed a joint motion with the Tax Court to hold the case in abeyance pending the outcome of Comcast Corporation v. Department of Revenue, State of Oregon, which remains pending before the Tax Court as case number 4909. As of the date of the Agreement, the case remains pending. 24 2. MCI Communications Services, Inc., et al. v. CentuiyTel of Inter -Island, Inc.. et al. On September 5, 2014, MCI Communication Services, Inc. and Verizon Select Services, Inc. riled a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington against Astound Broadband, LLC ("Astound") and other local carries. Plaintiffs allege that inter -carrier access charges were, and continue to be, improperly assessed on wireless calls. MCI and Verizon are seeking recovery of such allegedly improperly charged access charges, a declaration that the defendants may not impose such charges, and a declaration that the plaintiffs are entitled to withhold payment for such charges. Plaintiffs have filed at least 27 other lawsuits against other local exchange carriers across the country, asserting essentially the same allegations. In an order dated December 16, 2014, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation transferred all 28 lawsuits to the jurisdiction of the Northern District of Texas. Defendants filed a joint Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff's federal claims on May 1, 2015. The Court granted the Motion on November 1.7, 201.5. Plaintiff's state claims remain, and Defendants' jointly moved the court for leave to assert counterclaims, which was granted. Astound received all monies it was owed from Plaintiffs and therefore declined to file counterclaims. Plaintiffs have appealed the dismissal of the federal claims and/or have sought intervention by the FCC. As of the date of the Agreement, the case remains pending. 4. C-Cation Technologies v. Atlantic Broadband Group, LLC, et al. In a Complaint filed on April 7, 2015, in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, C-Cation Technologies, LLC brought suit against the Company and nine other cable operating companies alleging the defendants infringed United States Patent No. 5,563,883 entitled "Dynamic Channel Management and Signaling Method and Apparatus," by making, using, testing, implementing, and/or operating cable systems that fall within and whose use falls within the scope of at least one claim of the patent. The Company entered into a joint defense agreement with the other defendants, and sought indemnification from the equipment vendor(s) whose product(s) may infringe the patent held by plaintiff. The validity of the patent involved in the claim is under Inter Partes Review ("IPR" ), and the plaintiff in the case agreed to stay the action pending the outcome of such review. After IPR on July 28, 2016, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") found all three asserted claims of C-Cation's patent invalid. C-Cation has appealed the decision of the PTAB, and also agreed to keep the stay in place while the appeal is pending. The appeal is expected to take approximately one year. 25 5. ChanBond, LLC v. WaveDivision Holdings, LLC, DED Case no. 1:15-CV-00853-RGA. This lawsuit, alleging infringement of multiple patents, was filed in the Delaware U.S. District Court against the Company and numerous other cable providers on September 21, 2015. On October 2, 2015, the Company was notified by its agent in Delaware that the agent had been served with a Summons and Complaint in the matter on October 1, 2015. The complaint alleges infringement of multiple patents that are generally designated for use in the improving of data transmission of "wideband distribution systems." Specifically, CbanBond argues that the Company's alleged infringement stems from the Company's use ofDOCSIS 3.0 compatible cable modem termination systems manufactured by Casa and Cisco and the Company's deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 comnatible cable modems manufactured by Cisco. Arris. Versa. Hitron. and Zhone. The validity of each of the asserted claims is subject to IPR before the PTA-B. Two of the non -Company defendants have filed IPR 7. SRDF, Inc., a California corporation, formerly known as Layer42.Net, Inc., v. WaveDivision Holdings, LLC. SRDF, Inc. is the successor to Layer42, Inc., a data storage enterprise previously acquired by the Company. After the acquisition, the Company discovered from email on Layer42 servers that Layer42 had failed to disclose that one of its primary customers ("Pure") was planning to terminate a long tern contract, the existence of which had a material impact on the enterprise value of Layer42. In December 2015, the Company made a claim on the escrow account holding thefinal $2 million of its purchase price. SRDF has denied wrongdoing and on September 14, 2016, filed a lawsuit in federal court (Western District of Washington) to recover escrowed amounts. On October 7, 2016, the Company answered the Complaint and also 26 filed breach of contract and misrepresentation counterclaims against SRDF for the escrowed amounts and brought third party claims against three 27 Schedule 3.1.0 Permits Communications Licenses and Compliance with Laws (a) Cascadelink, Inc. conveyed its right title and interest in certain FCC issued microwave licenses to Astound Broadband, LLCprior to the of the consent of the FCC. 28 Schedule 3.1.2 Environmental Matters (e) Under the Real Property Leases, and in connection with the Company Real Property Interests, the Group Companies have standard contractual liabilities and obligations relating to Environmental Laws (for example, to indemnify landlords for damages relating to a spill of hazardous substances). 29 Schedule 3.13 Real Pr. over. tv Those certain liens (i) in favor of the U.S. Department of Commerce NTIABTOP Room 4812 concerning Sawtooth Technologies, L.L.C., (ii) in favor of U.S. Department of Commerce NTIABTOP Room 4812 concerning WDH Black Rock, LLC, and (iii) in favor of the United States of America Rural Utilities Service of the United States Department of Agriculture concerning that certain Grant Agreement, dated as of February 1., 2017, between Astound Broadband, LLC and the United States of America (collectively, the "BTOP Liens").

Basis QWd&entatn And Summary Of Significant Accounting Policies Basis of esentgion and Consolidation The accongpoctp g consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accountinles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") and include the accounts of the Company. All intercompany transactions and balances among consolidated entities have been eliminated. Reclassifications Certain balances in the 2015 and 2014 financial statements have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. 10 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) Use of Estimates and Assumptions The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires that management make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Management periodically assesses the accuracy of these estimates and assumptions. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates are used when accounting for vano items, including but not limited to allowances for doubtful accounts; derivative financial in umen s; asset impairments; certain acquisition -related liabilities; revenue recogniti de p ci ` on and amortization; and legal and other contingencies. Estimates and assumptio t . sed when determining the allocation of the purchase price in a business combin tiV a' alue of assets and liabilities and determining related useful lives. Cash and Cash Equivalents I" The Company considers all highly liquid investments wi an o inal turity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. Concentration and Monitoring of Credit Risk Financial instruments that potentially subje pa to significant concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cas quiv n ccounts receivable, interest rate swap agreements, and undrawn revolving linf, o redit m itments. The Company invests its cash and h e iv in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement by and a ng an ble Acquisition, LLC, the Company, Sun Trust, as Administrative Agent (the "Ad i .ve A nt"), and certain syndicated lenders, executed on the Closing Date (as amended fro -.ti to time, the "Credit Agreement"), which seeks to ensure both liquidity and safety of pr,' at e ' to 7). The Company's policy limits investments to instruments issued by the U.S. Bove ommercial institutions with strong investment grade credit ratings, and place c ns o the length of maturity. The Company monitors the third -party depository instit ons t t .y,�td its cash and cash equivalents. The Comp r trict investments are either held in escrow or in deposit accounts with institutio having f investment grade credit ratings. The Comp y's t de receivables reflect a diverse customer base. Up front credit evaluation and account m g procedures are used to minimize the risk of loss. As a result, concentrations of credit risk are limited. The Company believes that its allowance for doubtful accounts is adequate to cover these risks. The Company has potential exposure to credit losses in the event of nonperformance by the counterparties to its (i) revolving line of credit, (ii) letter of credit commitments collateralized by the Sponsor Facility (as discussed further in Note 13), and (iii) derivative instruments and hedging activities (as discussed further in Note 9). The Company anticipates however, that the counterparties will be able to fully satisfy their obligations under these agreements, given that they are very large, highly rated financial institutions, and in the case of the revolving tine of credit, are also key lenders under the Credit Agreement. 11 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) Accounts Receivable, net The Company carries the accounts receivable at cost less an allowance for doubtful accounts. Allowances for doubtful accounts are recorded as a selling, general and administrative expense. The Company evaluates the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful accounts at least quarterly and computes the allowance for doubtful accounts by applying a percentage to accounts in past due categories. This percentage is based on the history of actual write-offs. The Company also performs a subjective review of specific large accounts to determine if an additional re s ve is necessary. The formula for calculating the allowance closely parallels RCN's history of actual ite-offs net of recoveries. The allowance for doubtful accounts was $1.5 million and $1.9 n a , ee ber 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Long -Term Restricted Investments The Company has cash balances held as collateral related ar s in nce policies (mainly general, auto liability, and workers compensation), and sur bon primarily for franchise and permit obligations. These investments are restricted and ava ble f use by the Company. Property, Plant and Equipment, net Additions to property, plant and equipment are t at t it acquisition cost. Costs associated with new customer installations and the ' nI f ork equipment necessary to provide advanced services are capitalized. Costs tali of initial customer installations include material, labor, and certain indirect c st nd ar ca talized in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 922- Entertainment - Cable Televis, rill`A To 922"). Indirect costs pertain to the Company's personnel that assist in connect'1th e ice and primarily consist of wages, employee benefits, payroll taxes, and an cat' n o rhead and direct variable costs associated with the capitalizable activities such in tion d construction labor costs and third party installation costs. The costs of disconnec downgrading service at a customer's dwelling are charged to expense in the period ' re C s for repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred, while plant an t eplacement and betterments, including replacement of cable drops from the po a ells , are capitalized. Depreciation is r orded ingthe straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various classes oras c le pr erty. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the life of the lehe estimated useful life. The significant components of property, plant and equipmee as average estimated lives are as follows: 12 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) Depreciation expense was $68.0 million, $73.4 million and $83.3 million for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The Company accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 360- Property, Plant and Equipment which requires that long-lived assets be evaluated whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable or the useful life has changed. Such indicators include significant technological changes, adverse changes in relationships with local franchise authorities, adverse changes in market conditions and/or poo erating results. The carrying value of a long-lived asset group is considered impaired whe the p ojected undiscounted future cash flows is less than its carrying value, and the am f i ent loss recognized is the difference between the estimated fair value and the car not the asset or asset group. Fair market value is determined primarily using th je fu re cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risk involved. Signific ju a in this area involve determining whether a triggering event has occurred, determi the cash flows for the assets involved and selecting the appropriate discount rate t e ap 'ed in etermining estimated fair value. During the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 d 2 there were no long-lived asset impairment charges. Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets Goodwill Goodwill represents the excess of the ac sitio o an acquired entity over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired. k orda a 'th the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 350 Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (" ST 3 ), goodwill is not amortized but is tested for impairment on an annual basis or ee n ests if events occur or circumstances change that would more likely than not red t fai a e of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. In accordance with ASC Topic 0, Com ny has identified its reporting units as the primary geographic markets it operat i or purposes of goodwill impairment testing. Goodwill as of December 31, 2016 and t le 124.1 million, as a result of the acquisition by ABRY of the Company. The Compan s annual impairment test for goodwill in October and utilizes a qualitative assess p ch to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting it is s an the carrying amount. As a result of the Company's impairment evaluation at De mber 2 16, there was no impairment loss. Indefinit Wed I c1 les In accord a wi the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 350, indefinite -lived intangible assets are tested for impair X an annual basis or between annual tests if events occur or circumstances change that would indicate that the assets might be impaired. The Company's indefinite -lived intangible assets consist of the RCN tradename and certain franchise rights. The Company conducted annual impairment tests of its indefinite -lived assets in the fourth quarter of 2016, 2015 and 2014 at the units of accounting level. The units of accounting were determined under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 350 to be the Company's franchise rights in the Chicago and Pennsylvania markets and the RCN tradename. The Company reviewed the indefinite -lived assets for impairment in 2016, 2015 and 2014 and determined that no impairment existed. Other Intangibles The costs of other intangible assets, including customer relationships and software, are amortized over their estimated useful lives. Customer relationships are amortized on an accelerated method 13 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) over a useful life of 3 to 9 years based on the period over which current customers are expected to generate cash flows. Internally developed software is amortized on a straight-line basis. Amortizable intangible assets are tested for impairment in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 360. See Note 4 for the ranges of useful lives of the amortizable intangible assets. Asset Retirement Obligations FASB ASC Topic 410- Asset Retirement and Environmental ("ASC Topic 410") %resses financial accounting and reporting for obligations associated with the retirement of tangible g-liv d assets and the associated asset retirement costs. FASB ASC Topic 410 requires rec on a ility for an asset retirement obligation in the period in which it is incurred at its estim e r e. Certain of the Company's franchise and lease agreements contain provisions t : t re Company to restore facilities or remove property in the event that the fran a le a agreement is not renewed. The Company expects to continually renew its franchis eme d therefore, cannot estimate any liabilities associated with such agreements. A r to ssibil exists that franchise agreements could terminate unexpectedly, which could resin the mpany incurring significant expense in complying with the restoration or removal visi . Th e are no significant asset retirement -related liabilities recorded in the Comganvs d financial statements. Revenue Recognition Revenues are principally derived from fees - is - d w' the Company's video, telephone, and high-speed data services and are recogni as e ; e en the services are rendered, evidence of an arrangement exists, the fee is fi d dete i ble and collection is probable. Payments received in advance are deferred . E re gni d as revenue when the service is provided. Installation fees charged to the pan r ' tial and small business customers are less than related direct selling costs an er , re r recognized in the period the service is provided. Installation fees charged to r all b siness customers are generally recognized over the contract life which is not m rt- ly different than the service life. Reciprocal compensation revenue, the fees that ex n carriers pay to terminate calls on each other's networks, is based upon calls terming ompany's network at contractual rates. Under the terms of applicable franchi,' e; , nts, he Company is generally required to pay an amount based on gross video revel"es to a at franchising authority. These fees are normally passed through to the Company's I le su cri ers and accordingly, the fees are classified as revenue with the correspon o , 'nclu d in direct expenses. Certain other taxes imposed on revenue producing transacti f s, such versal Service Fund fees are also presented as revenue and expense. For the years ,anded cember 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014, revenues included approximately $18.7 million, $18.9 milip and, 18.9 million of franchise fees, respectively. When the Company enters into sales contracts for the sale of multiple products or services, the Company evaluates whether it has fair value evidence for each deliverable in the transaction. If the Company has fair value evidence for each deliverable of the transaction, then it accounts for each deliverable in the transaction separately, based on the relevant revenue recognition accounting policies. For example, the Company sells video, high-speed data and voice services to subscribers in a bundled package at a rate lower than if the subscriber purchases each product on an individual basis. Subscription revenues received from such subscribers are allocated to each product in a pro- rata manner based on the relative fair value of each of the respective services. 14 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) Direct Expenses Direct expenses consist primarily of video programming costs, leased telecommunications services, voice termination costs, franchise and regulatory fees, pole rental and right-of-way fees, co -location costs and revenue share payments. Programming costs consist of the fees paid to suppliers of video content, which is generally obtained through multiyear agreements and contains rates that are typically based the number of authorized subscribers that receive the programming content. At times, as these tract_ expire, programming content continues to be provided based on interim arrange w parties negotiate new contractual terms, sometimes with effective dates that affe ods. While actual payments are generally made under the prior contract terms g t e ation period, the amount of programming expenses recorded during the n ti n eriod is based on management's estimates of the expected contractual ter, be t ately negotiated. Programming costs are paid each month based on calculatio erf ed b t e Company and are subject to periodic audits performed by the programmers. Ce in p ramming contracts contain launch incentives paid by the programmers.

Disputes that are resolved in the Company's favor are recorded aIft, Iduci i ect expenses in the period the dispute is settled. Any benefits associated with tho ble s ution of such disputes are often realized in periods subsequent to the accrual of ted i oice. All other direct costs are expensed as incurred. 15 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) - also known as the requisite service period (usually the vesting period). No compensation cost is recognized for equity instruments for which employees do not render the requisite service. Debt Issuance Costs Debt issuance costs are capitalized and amortized to interest expense over the term of the underlying obligations using the straight-line method which approximates the effective interest method, and are a reduction of the outstanding debt amount. Income Taxes The Company and all of its subsidiaries are organized as limited liabil' co d are taxed under the partnership provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Acc , n rovision for federal income taxes has been made in the accompanying financial stat ntsn , th it profits and losses are ultimately reported on the tax returns of the Company's a rs. istrict of Columbia ("DC") and New York City does impose income taxes on uninc orat businesses, and therefore, the Company is subject to these taxes. Accordingly, wh n the omp has claimed tax benefits that may be challenged by a tax authority, these unc r sitions are accounted for under FASB ASC Topic 740. Under this accounting guida t b s are recognized only for tax positions that are more likely than not to be su I ned p examination by tax authorities. The amount recognized is measured as the largest a u of b efit that is greater than 50 percent likely to be realized upon settlement. A lia fo nre nized tax benefits is recorded for any tax benefits claimed in the Company's x r r I t do not meet these recognition and measurement standards. At December 3 016, e ompany has not recorded any liability for unrecognized tax benefits. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), that introduces a new five -step revenue recognition model in which an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This ASU also requires disclosures sufficient to enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including qualitative and quantitative disclosures about contracts with customers, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. This 16 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the new guidance to determine the impact, if any, it will have on its consolidated financial statements. In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03 which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts, rather than be presented as an asset. In August 2015 the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, which amends the previously issued ndard, to allow debt issuance costs related to a line -of -credit arrangement to continue to b repow d as n asset. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 20 d r e periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and must be appl' d o a s ctive basis. The Company adopted this standard in 2016 and reclassified the 20 [an o nform to the 2016 presentation. Debt issuance costs of $19.3 million and $4.4 = on at g to Long-term debt and bond payable, respectively, were reclassified from defer harg a other assets and recorded as a reduction to the outstanding debt amounts. In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standar d No.X2016-02, Leases. The new standard establishes a right -of use (ROU) model that q ee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases w' ter 11 long than 12 months.

The company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its cons dated a, ial statements. 3. Fair u s And Liabilities In accor ce w h the authoritative guidance for fair value measurements and the fair value election f s and liabilities, a fair value measurement is determined based on the assumptions that a mark articipant would use in pricing an asset or liability. A three -tiered hierarchy was established that draws a distinction between market participant assumptions based on (i) observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets (Level 1), (ii) inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are observable either directly or indirectly (Level 2) and (iii) unobservable inputs that require the Company to use present value and other valuation techniques in the determination of fair value (Level 3). Assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measure. The Company's assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurements requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of the assets and liabilities being measured and their placement within the fair value hierarchy. 17 Yankee Cable Parent, LLC Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Dollars in thousands, except unit data) The carrying value of the term loan borrowings under the due to the variable interest rates associated with these fi The carrying values of accounts receivable and fair values due to their short maturity.

Description of Business Networks LLC Grande Communications Networks LLC (the "Company") was formed in Delaware on September 14, 2009. The Company is a wholly -owned subsidiary of Grande Parent LLC (the "Parent"). The Company and the Parent are wholly -owned indirect subsidiaries of Grande Investment L.P. Grande Investment L.P. is a partnership between Rio Holdings, Inc. ("Rio") and ABRY Partners VI L.P. On September 14, 2009, the Company was party to a recapitalization 2009, between Rio Holdings, Inc., ABRY, Grande Investment L.P., Gr Partners, LLC and Rio GP, LLC ("Rio GP"), which provided for the re( Communications Networks, Inc. (the "Recapitalization Agreement"),, The Company offers its well as high speed data these services in eight r 2. Risks 27, TAW nd minercial customers traditional video programming as lone services on a subscription basis. The Company provides the state of Texas using local broadband networks. The Comp 's futu o*rations involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Factors that could affect f ur peratin results and cause actual results to vary from historical results include, but are fMit o, h of its subscriber base and the Company's ability to service its debt and op tions t X. cash flows. The Company's credit facilities contain certain restrictive fina vial cov,' Hants that, among other things, require the Company to maintain certain leverage ratio ; knd p,' ce certain limitations on additional debt and investments (Note 7). The Company plans to continue the expansion of its existing subscriber base through existing and new services, such as: digital cable, high speed Internet, high -definition television, and telephony services. The Company anticipates additional capital expenditures to facilitate this growth. Under current plans and operations, additional financing in excess of existing facilities is not expected to be required to fund operations or capital expenditures. Operating cash flow and utilization of the existing revolving credit facility are expected to be sufficient to repay current obligations and outstanding debt as they become due through at least the next 12 months. Should the Company fail to meet its expectations, the Company would look to obtain additional financing, refinance existing agreements, and/or reduce capital expenditures. Based on the Company's current 0 Grande Communications Networks LLC Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2016 and 2015 (in thousands) operating plan, management anticipates being in compliance with all applicable financial covenants throughout 2017. 3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make assumptions an timates that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, derivative financial instrumen nd disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements a re mounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The most sign'fican -s ► to late to useful lives of plant, property and equipment and finite -lived intangi I se d recoverability of the carrying values of goodwill, other intangible assets and fixe E ss ( ich include capitalized labor and overhead costs) and commitments and c ' I end tual results could differ from those estimates.

Grande Communications Networks LLC Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2016 and 2015 (in thousands) Goodwill and Intangible Assets Intangible assets consist primarily of acquired franchise operating rights and subscriber relationships. Franchise operating rights represent the value attributable to agreements with local franchising authorities, which allows access to homes in the public right of way acquired through a business combination. Subscriber relationships represent the value to the Company of the benefit of acquiring the existing cable television subscriber base. The Company considers franchise operating rights to have an indefinite life. The Company reached its conclusion regarding the indefinite useful life of its franchise operating rights principally because (i) there a no legal, regulatory, contractual, competitive, economic, or other factors limiting the period r whi h these rights will continue to contribute to the Company's cash flows (ii) as an exi ran s the Company's renewal applications are granted by the local franchising kutho ei n merits and not as part of a comparative process with competing new appli a s =i der the 1984 Cable Act, a local franchising authority may not unreasonably wit , Id r ewal of a cable system franchise.

ASU 20 2 giv c nies the option to perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether' is re lik th n not (a likelihood of more than 50%) that the fair value of an indefinite -lived i n le set ' less than its carrying amount. The objective of the revised standard is to sim ho n I tests indefinite -lived intangible assets for impairment and to reduce t cos n m exity of the annual impairment test. ASU 2012-2 became effective for an I terim pairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012.

An impairment ssessm nt f goodwill and franchise operating rights could be triggered by a sig5cant r ction operating results or cash flows, or a forecast of such reductions, a sig ad ange in the locations in which the Company operates, or by adverse changes to rsnershi _ rules, among others. As of October 1, 2016 and 2015, the impairment review date, no i airm t was identified or recorded and as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, no impairment trigg 11, identified. Grande Communications Networks LLC Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2016 and 2015 (in thousands) Other Long Term Assets Other long term assets include amounts paid to owners of multiple dwelling unit for access to the units. These multiple dwelling unit payments are amortized over the contract term which averages from seven to fifteen years. Realizabilty of Long -Lived Assets The carrying values of long-lived assets, which include construction material, plant property, and equipment, and other intangible assets with finite lives, are evaluated for impair t whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount may not be re rable. An impairment loss is recognized if the carrying amount exceeds its fair value. ca'n ount is not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of undiscounted cash flows expected r f the use and eventual disposition of the assets. Any impairment loss would a eas a e amount by which the carrying amount exceeded the fair value, most likely d mi b uture discounted cash flows. Management believes that there have been no im ents o ecember 31, 2016 and 2015. Revenue Recognition Revenues from residential and bus' a subsc er are generally recognized when evidence of an arrangement exists, services ar e = - er I the Iling price is determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenu romp 'de ' rnet access and telephony services are recognized based upon monthly servic es fe p event. Revenue for customer fees, equipment rental, advertising and pay -per-. ammi g is recognized in the period that the services are delivered. Video and non a stallation revenue is recognized in the period the installation services are provid th t of direct selling costs. Under the terms of the Company's nonexclusive franch en s, the Company is generally required to pay up to 5% of its gross revenues der: rovi i g cable service to the local franchise authority. The Company normally pa es th s through to its cable subscribers and records these fees in revenue with a correspo ing am nt ncluded in direct expenses.

RecenflAbEcounting Pronouncements In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") 2014-09, an update of ASC 606 Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. An entity should disclose sufficient qualitative and quantitative information to enable users of financial statements to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. For nonpublic entities, the amendments in this update are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted in certain circumstances 10 Grande Communications Networks LLC Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2016 and 2015 (in thousands) and amendments should be applied retrospectively. The Company is currently evaluating ASU 2014-09 and has not determined the impact it may have on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows nor decided upon the method of adoption. In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03 which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts, rather than be presented as an asset. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, which amends the previously is : ed standard, to allow debt issuance costs related to a line -of -credit arrangement to continue to be orte as an asset.

The Company is currently evaluating the impact this ASU will have on the financial statements. Capitalization of Labor and Overhead Costs The cable industry is capital intensive, and a large portion of our resources are spent on capital activities associated with extending, building and upgrading the cable network. Costs associated with network construction, initial customer installations, installation refurbishments and the addition of network equipment necessary to enable advanced services are capitalized. Costs capitalized as part of initial customer installations include materials, direct labor costs associated with capital projects and certain indirect costs. The Company capitalizes direct labor costs associated with 11 Grande Communications Networks LLC Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2016 and 2015 (in thousands) personnel based upon the specific time devoted to construction and customer installation activities. Indirect costs are associated with the activities of personnel who assist in connecting and activating the new service and consist of compensation and overhead costs associated with these support functions. The costs of disconnecting service at a customer's dwelling or reconnecting service to a previously installed dwelling, without providing additional services or functionality, are charged to operating expense in the period incurred. Costs for repairs and maintenance are charged to operating expense as incurred, while equipment replacement and betterments, including replacement of cable drops from the pole to dwelling, are capitalized. The Company amortizes the capitalized labor and overhead costs over the ' f th . el tl equipment which ranges from 3-10 years. The vast majority of these apit e Is late to customer installation activity and related equipment additions. Acc9f ly, i Ilation assets are amortized over the same period as the fixed assets acquired Judgment is required to determine the extent to which indir f1cos or ovInhead, are incurred as a result of specific capital activities and, therefore, should be italiz The Company capitalizes overhead based upon an allocation of the portion of in ' ect c s tha ontribute to capitalizable activities using an overhead rate applied to the am n , 11e : bor capitalized. The Company has established overhead rates based on an an is o e na of costs incurred in support of capitalizable activities and a determination of po - n osts which is directly attributable to capitalizable activities. The primary costs that uded,. the determination of overhead rates are (i) employee benefits and payroll to o ted capitalized direct labor, (ii) direct variable costs associated with capitali le ac iti nsisting primarily of installation and construction vehicle costs, (iii) the s , supp p sonnel, such as dispatch that directly assist with capitalizable installation act' iti a (IV I her costs directly attributable to capitalizable activities. 4.

PUBLIC INTEREST STATEMENT The Transaction will generate substantial public interest benefits without posing any actual or potential harms to consumers or competition. Consummation of the Transaction will promote competition by strengthening Wave's ability to offer consumers a strong competitive alternative source of video, high-speed Internet, voice, and business data services, and will not result in any reduction in competition, because Transferee's RCN and Grande operating subsidiaries do not serve any of Wave's markets. Consumers will face no disruption — they will receive the same services as before the Transaction — and will see definite benefits, because those services will grow and improve with the increased financial wherewithal, added experience and innovative ideas contributed by Transferee's management team. The Commission should find that the Transaction is in the public interest. A. The Transaction Will Produce Substantial Public Interest Benefits. That Transferee won the private auction for the sale of Transferor Wave Holdco and its Wave operating subsidiaries is a boon for customers and competition. While Wave could have been acquired by an operator already serving the markets at issue, Transferee's ownership will preserve and strengthen Wave's competitive voice. The combination of Wave, RCN and Grande under Transferee's ownership and management is a favorable result — not just for customers of the Wave systems being acquired, but also for the customers of Transferee's RCN and Grande systems and for other people living in the areas in which Wave, RCN, and Grande provide competition to larger incumbents. As discussed in detail below, the Wave, RCN and Grande systems are technologically innovative providers of video, voice and Internet services, dedicated to broad deployment of the highest -level technologies in the communities that they serve. Bringing these smaller, independent operations under one roof — and combining their experience, expertise, and innovative thinking — will confer real benefits on consumers by offering even stronger competition to the larger, well -established providers in the marketplace. Led by the experienced management team from Patriot Media, Transferee's RCN and Grande operating subsidiaries have fashioned and implemented a tech -forward strategy that has accelerated the deployment of state-of-the-art technologies, thereby strengthening their competitive position in the markets they serve. This includes following through on plans described in filings related to Transferee's acquisition of RCN and Grande; for example, since being acquired by Transferee, .RCN and Grande have continued rolling out DOCKS 3.1 throughout their footprint. RCN and Grande also have introduced Gigabit speeds in several additional markets, deployed an integrated Netflix service, partnered with TiVo to offer cutting - edge navigation devices, provided subscribers ways to easily access YouTube and Hulu through the TiVo platform, and begun offering HBOGO and a branded TV Everywhere service. Patriot Media's exemplary management performance is illustrated by the recognition RCN received as PC Magazine's Reader's Choice for Best ISP in 2015 and 2016.2 Wave's history is similar. It, too, has earned a well -deserved reputation for deploying high -capacity networks that enable Wave to offer Gigabit, 250 Mbps and 100 Mbps services to many of its customers, and at the same time supporting such services with high -quality technical support and customer service to its customers and, in particular, for developing technology enabling its 240 Network Operations Center to proactively monitor its distribution network and customer premises equipment and thereby prevent or quickly remedy any technical issues. The significant achievements of the highly regarded local staff of Wave in areas of technical quality and innovation have been widely recognized. In fact, Wave's enviable track record includes its z See Ben Z. Gottesman, "Readers' Choice Awards 2016: Internet Service Providers," PC Magazine (May 11, 2016), available at http:/hvww.pcmag.com/article/344519/. receiving the prestigious "Independent Operator of the Year" award from CableFax Magazine in 201.2,3 being named the "Fastest ISP in. the Northwest" by PC Magazine in 2014,E and being recognized as the highest -ranked bundled -service ISP in the US by reader score by Consumer Reports in 2016.5 There will be mutual benefits from bringing under common ownership and management the forward -looking operations of these award -winning systems. The integration of the Wave networks with the RCN and Grande networks will benefit the customers of both companies by allowing not just Wave, but also RCN and Grande, to obtain more favorable financing and programming arrangements and other operational efficiencies. Further, while much of the existing Wave local staff will remain in place, Transferee's Patriot Media management team will provide operational oversight, input and creative thinking, and ensure that Wave continues to meet the same high standards for technological innovation and customer service that Wave's customers have come to expect, enhanced by the accomplished Patriot Media team's expertise and experience. In addition, Patriot Media will be able to draw on Wave's expertise providing dark fiber and its leadership in the deployment and operation of Gigabit fiber networks. RCN and Grande have begun a Gigabit upgrade to their networks and the combined entity will be able to capitalize on Wave's experience and expertise to accelerate and improve that roll -out. The Transaction also will facilitate system improvements, such as RCN's upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1, which will further increase Internet speeds and will enable the operating subsidiaries to compete more effectively against larger, national rivals in both the residential and See Cablefax, Top Ops Awards 2012, available at http://www.cablefax.com/the-lists/top-ops- 2012#independent-operator-of-the-year. a See PC Mag, "Fastest ISPs by Region: Northwest," (Sept. 4, 2014) available at http://www.pemag_com/article?/0.2817,2465507,00.asp. See Consumer Reports, "Telecom Services Ratings: Bundled Services," (last viewed: May 30, 2017) available at littp://www.consumet-reports.org/products/bundled-services/ratings-overview;. business sectors. As an over -builder, these improvements allow customers in the markets in which Wave, RCN, and Grande operate to experience real competition and true choices, regardless of the provider they choose. The Transaction presents a rare opportunity for a combination which allows increased efficiency and economies of scale without undermining competition. In fact, it will actually promote competition, since the combination of RCN, Grande, and Wave will more effectively compete with larger national providers. At a time when the industry is marked by growing consolidation, the presence in the marketplace of a well -funded, competitive, independent source of advanced video and broadband services becomes all the more important. The Transaction's public interest benefits go beyond investments and improvements that will be made in the Wave, RCN, and Grande operating subsidiaries: those investments and improvements will drive other competitors to make their own investments and improvements. B. The Transaction Will Not Result in Any Harm to the Public Interest. The Transaction will not result in any harms to consumers or competition or violate any Commission rule or policy. It also will not result in any horizontal consolidation among overlapping cable or telecommunications providers or result in any adverse disruption in the systems' day-to-day operations. Significantly, there is no overlap between Transferee's existing networks and the networks operated by Wave. Wave provides services in some of the most competitive urban and suburban markets in the country, including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, along with underserved rural areas in California, Washington, and Oregon, while Transferee is providing (through RCN and Grande) voice, Internet, and video service in the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Texas. Competition and consumer choice will be sustained, and even improved, after the Transaction. The Transaction will give Transferee control over non -overlapping subsidiaries that provide cable, telecom, and OVS service to more than 450,000 video, voice, and high-speed Internet subscribers, in addition to the 656,000 subscribers served by its existing networks. Wave is the third largest competitive wireline provider of services in most of the communities where it offers services — behind companies such as AT&T/DirecTV, Comcast, Charter, Frontier, Dish, CenturyLink, Consolidated Communications, Zayo, Integra, and Level 3 — and even the combined entity will have a significantly smaller national presence than those competitors. Thus, although the Transaction will give Wave, RCN, and Grande increased scale to compete effectively in increasingly consolidated video and broadband markets and to negotiate favorable programming and equipment deals, it will not pose any of the competitive risks that the Commission has raised when considering mergers among larger service providers.6 More specifically, the Transaction will not reduce the number of head -to -head competitors in any market or create an entity with either the incentive or ability to limit consumers' access to OVD services, since none of the entities is a content producer and there is no overlap between their footprints. Additionally, because Wave will retain many of its front-line staff members, who will now be supervised by the experienced Patriot Media team that currently manages the day-to-day operations of the RCN and Grande operating subsidiaries on behalf of Transferee, there is no risk of the sorts of adverse impact on customer service that have occurred following other F See, e.g., In the Matter of Applications of'Charter Communications, Inc., Tinie Warner Cable, Inc.., and Advance/Newhouse Partnership, 64 Comm. Reg. 1259 (2016) (noting the "deeply rooted preference for preserving and enhancing competition" and focusing in particular on OVD competition implications and geographic overlap between the applicants); see also Federal Conununications Comm'n. blog post, "FCC Transaction Review: Competition and the Public Interest." Aug. 12, 2014 (noting that preserving and promoting competition is at the core of a public interest analysis). transactions. The consumer experience only will change for the better, as the purchasing power of Wave, RCN and Grande is combined to provide opportunities to obtain more favorable financing and purchasing arrangements and the improved financing options allow for even more investment and network improvements. Finally, as previously explained, Wave will continue to offer competitive and innovative products, with improvements introduced over time. Thus, the Transaction is not expected to result in the discontinuance, reduction, loss or impairment of service to any customer. For that reason consumers will face no disruption in service, and will see real benefits, because those services will grow and improve with the increased financial wherewithal, added experience and innovative ideas contributed by Transferee's Patriot Media management team. For the reasons stated above, the Transaction will ensure that the Wave operating subsidiaries will remain robust and innovative competitors capable of providing consumers with world -class voice, video, broadband Internet, and business data services and of spurring their competitors to improve their offerings.
