Bluebird Network Extends Fiber Network to Strafford, MO

Bluebird Network — a high capacity fiber Internet and transport services provider and underground data center owner — has expanded its fiber network to better serve businesses within the Strafford, Missouri community, the company said.

The expansion underscores Bluebird´s enduring dedication to offering high-speed Internet services, cloud connections, high-quality data transport and underground colocation products to rural and underserved areas. This build comes on the heels of expanding 61 route miles of fiber in nearby Springfield, Missouri and an additional 21 route miles of fiber in Joplin.

With this network expansion, Bluebird´s communications infrastructure underpins the success of local businesses, Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), governments, healthcare facilities, schools and wireless towers with access to 10Mbps to 1Gbps, 10Gbps or even 100Gbps connections. This also enables the community to easily leverage the advantages of the Bluebird Underground Data Center and its services, which remain in strategic proximity to Strafford roughly 15 miles away in Springfield.

Bluebird offers more than 9,800 fiber route miles of high-speed broadband, 151 Points of Presence (POPs) and 54,000 on-net and near-net buildings. The company is established in and continuing to expand throughout Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and the surrounding states, enabling businesses to connect to each other, to locations across the region, to the Internet at large and to the Bluebird Underground Data Center.

Since 1999, Bluebird Network, headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, has provided Internet and transport services, via its fiber communications infrastructure, to Carriers and Enterprises in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa and the surrounding states. In 2014, an underground data center was acquired, adding the Bluebird Underground Data Center facility to the Bluebird suite of services. To learn more, visit
