Bluebird Network has made a small inorganic move out in the midwest. The Missouri-based communications infrastructure provider says it has agreed to acquire the middle mile network assets of Missouri Telecom Inc., or MTI, which operates FTTH infrastructure in the region.
The network assets in question include some 40 route miles of fiber connecting three PoPs in southwestern Missouri, touching the cities of Mount Vernon, Monett, and Aurora. Bluebird has rather less infrastructure in that part of the state than in the northern half, and therefore this will help them flesh out their reach around the I-44 corridor on the way to Oklahoma.
Bluebird has been steadily expanding its network reach, and with this deal will have added 155 route miles during the quarter. They also operate some unique data center assets to complement their fiber reach. The asset purchase from MTI is expected to close by the end of December.
