  • Bluebird Network

COLUMBIA, MO — Bluebird Network, a Midwest telecommunications company, announced the close of its acquisition by Macquarie Infrastructure Partners (MIP), one of the largest infrastructure funds in the world. Through this acquisition, Bluebird will increase its fiber footprint even further, providing greater access to existing customers and reaching out to new service areas. Bluebird remains committed to maintaining its personalized level of service while gaining capacity to increase the scope of its operations.

The transaction provides Bluebird an immediate 2,500 fiber route mile expansion into Illinois, including the cities of Rockford, Peoria, Bloomington, Normal and the Quad Cities area. Future network builds are planned to connect more communities and achieve greater fiber densification. In addition, the company’s underground colocation facility, the Bluebird Underground Data Center, located in Springfield, Missouri, is undergoing a second major expansion to increase power and available space for customers.

Bluebird Network has been a transport network and internet provider in the Midwest for 20 years thanks to a combination of technologically advanced fiber, scalable, adaptable infrastructure and dedicated employees. Bluebird believes all businesses deserve the connectivity required to thrive in the modern digital landscape, and they are supported by a loyal, diverse customer base throughout Missouri, Illinois and the surrounding states. This acquisition strengthens Bluebird’s promise to best serve its customers, providing businesses and communities access to robust, flexible, high-speed transport and internet services.
