The new data center fortifies Bluebird Network’s 2020 infrastructure investments, enhancing the company’s network reach and doubling the company’s data center footprint.

The data center, located in Bettendorf, strengthens Bluebird’s capabilities and its fiber network footprint throughout Iowa and Illinois. The company’s recent network and data center expansions are focused on enhancing service capabilities to the cities of Rockford, Bloomington-Normal and the Quad Cities. As part of the acquisition plan, ColoHub will be rebranded under the Bluebird Network brand, adding to the already unique capabilities available at the Bluebird Underground Data Center in Springfield, Missouri.
