Communications infrastructure providers are expanding and densifying their footprint in the Midwestern United States to continuously provide critical services to communities throughout the region. The industry has witnessed this constant growth in the Midwest, and it doesn’t look like it’s coming to a halt anytime soon.

Bluebird Network, a communications infrastructure provider and operator of two data centers and nearly 10,800 miles of fiber, has announced the company’s intent to acquire the middle-mile fiber network assets from Missouri Telecom Inc. (MTI). Together, Bluebird and MTI have executed an Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire the fiber network assets to include 40 route miles of fiber, along with three Points of Presence (PoPs) in Southwest Missouri, including the cities Mount Vernon, Monett, Nevada, and Aurora.

In line with Bluebird’s overall growth strategy for the Midwest, this strategic acquisition of MTI’s network assets will improve and expand the company’s current fiber network throughout Southwest Missouri. To give its clients secure and dependable connectivity, Bluebird is constantly looking for good development possibilities. Bluebird will not be purchasing MTI’s voice services, instead focusing on dedicated fiber and internet services in line with the company’s existing offerings.
