Bluebird Network Expands Fiber in Springfield, MO

Bluebird Network LLC, a Midwest telecommunications company, has completed its fiber expansion and investment in Springfield, MO, the company said.

This expansion interconnects major business areas in Springfield to the Bluebird Underground Data Center — also located in Springfield, and to its 9,300-plus-mile fiber network throughout the Midwest.

The expansion gives Springfield businesses expanded options for their Internet and networking needs with new competitive solutions. This 61-mile fiber expansion continues the momentum that began in late 2014 when Bluebird purchased Springfield´s only colocation data center from City Utilities.

That momentum will be further reinforced with a currently planned fiber buildout in Strafford, MO, followed by upcoming projects occurring throughout the Midwest over the next few years. These expansions also supplement Bluebird´s recent Midwest fiber acquisitions in Illinois. Bluebird Underground customers also benefit from this announcement with the ability to leverage fiber connections to hosted cloud service providers such as AWS, Google, Microsoft, Oracle and IBM.

Bluebird is dedicated to increasing its fiber routes and expanding its reach into new and underserved areas. The company´s advanced network capabilities provide speeds up to 100 gigabytes through a variety of different services, including Dedicated Internet Access, Virtual LAN and Wide Area Networking capabilities.
