Bluebird Network to Acquire Illinois Network Alliance

  • Bluebird Network

COLUMBIA, MO — Bluebird Network, a Midwest telecommunications company, has signed an agreement to acquire Illinois Network Alliance (INA). This integration of INA under Bluebird ownership will bring even greater cohesion and operational efficiencies to the Bluebird portfolio of services.

With a continued strategic focus on the Midwest, the acquisition will empower Bluebird to further strengthen its fiber services and high-bandwidth network solutions for cell towers, hospitals, schools, government facilities and other businesses. While Bluebird has always served as manager of INA, this new ownership role will enable Bluebird to strategically expand its capabilities and offerings between INA and other Bluebird infrastructures. Both respective networks will be grown together and expanded further into new and underserved areas. Bluebird will maintain its dedicated level of personalized customer service while expanding through the acquisition and subsequent fiber build-outs.

Bluebird Underground Data Center

Bluebird supports enterprise, carrier and data center customers with a portfolio of network services. This includes secure and reliable bandwidth, metro Ethernet, wide area network Ethernet, dedicated internet access, E-line services, Ethernet virtual private LAN service (E-LAN) and mobile backhaul transport services. Bluebird’s fiber optic infrastructure connects to the Bluebird Underground Data Center, an underground colocation facility located in Springfield, Missouri, which is currently undergoing a major expansion to more comprehensively support expanding customer requirements.

This announcement comes on the heels of Bluebird’s acquisition by Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, and its acquisition of PEG Bandwidth IL, further underpinning the company’s trajectory of growth and supporting its mission of delivering enhanced value, reliability and capability throughout the Midwest.

This transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary terms and conditions, and is expected to be closed by the end of the second quarter of 2020.
