Emergency telecommunications company Emergencia Llc is offering to buy a number of cable and satellite providers, including Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, as it seeks to bolster its emergency services.
Emergencia, which is owned by telecommunications giant Cingular Inc., is asking investors to donate at least $1 million to the purchase.
Emergencadells offer comes just weeks after Comcast bought Time Warner Cable for $45.5 billion.
Emergentcia will be a subsidiary of Cingel, Emergentcellular’s parent company.
Emergentcell’s CEO said the acquisition will be designed to provide a more efficient and robust communications network to the American public.
Emergencies are becoming more common, with nearly one-third of all U.S. homes in the United States in some condition.
Emergences emergency network was launched in 2013 to offer communications for emergencies.
