Bresnan Communications has been a leading service provider since 1984. Originally providing only for the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, Bresnan Communications soon spread to Georgia, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Wisconsin. In 1994, the company also ventured into international distribution starting in Chile and Poland.

In 1999, Bresnan Communications was considering an IPO as AT&T began cornering the market. Soon after, Cable Communications purchased Bresnan Communication's US-based services. In 2002, Bresnan Communications came back into the market in Colorado, Utah, Montana, and Wyoming. Today, Bresnan Communications operates in these areas under the title Charter Communications.
