Bluebird Network Integrates 3 Networks

Bluebird Network LLC, a Midwest telecommunications company, has completed a three-network integration project, dramatically increasing Bluebird´s fiber network penetration in the state of Illinois, the company said.

Offering high-speed Internet services, cloud connections, high-quality data transport and underground colocation products, Bluebird Network is ranked in the top one percent of world networks by the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis.

This expansion is driven by the company´s acquisition of the Illinois Network Alliance (INA) and its ownership of PEG Bandwidth Illinois — a network services provider. Bluebird Network has already deployed direct peer relationships to major social media, search engine and streaming applications.

Beyond the state of Illinois, Bluebird Network boasts a robust fiber network in the Quad Cities, reaching across the border into Iowa. Bluebird remains on a trajectory of growth and continues to expand its unique network into new and underserved areas, delivering the fast, high-quality fiber-based Internet and transport service options businesses require.

Bluebird Network offers more than 9,800 fiber route miles of high-speed broadband. The company remains dedicated to serving as a strategic Internet and data transport partner to businesses, Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), local governments, healthcare facilities, schools and wireless towers in the region as they evolve to meet tomorrow´s digital demands.

Since 1999, Bluebird Network, headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, has provided Internet and transport services, via its fiber 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. Bluebird operates over 9,800 fiber route miles of high-speed broadband and fiber-optic connections with over 50,000 on-net and near-net buildings, 151 Points of Presence (POP) sites spanning the Midwest, including the major cities of Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield (MO and IL), Tulsa, Peoria, Rockford, Bloomington, Normal and the Quad Cities.
