Bluebird Network, a communications infrastructure provider with 10,000 miles of fiber and two data centers, has launched a new 400 Gbps fiber service across Missouri while expanding its fiber network to 9,000 structures. The new 300-mile circuit connects St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri.
The new construction builds a high-speed information superhighway across Missouri, connecting the cities of Warrensburg, Sedalia, and Columbia. It would enable Bluebird Network to deliver network speeds four times faster than their previous optical circuit offering.
Bluebird added 9,000 additional on-net and near-net buildings and towers, bringing the total number of buildings with access to their services to 74,000. Clients, both new and old, would benefit from quicker speeds, as well as more redundancy and flexibility.
“Bluebird has always created unique routes helping us stand out and offer diversity from larger incumbent companies,” said Doug Zerr, Vice President of Engineering for Bluebird Network. “With this new circuit crossing through Missouri, we now have more places we can build out to at a much more affordable rate. This is going to give us a competitive edge like we’ve never had before.”
Based in Columbia, Missouri, Bluebird Network has been providing Internet and transport services to carriers and enterprises throughout Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, and the neighboring states since 1999, using its fiber infrastructure. Bluebird has two data centers, one located in Springfield, Missouri, and the other in the Quad Cities. Bluebird Network has nearly 74,000 on-net and near-net buildings, as well as 151 Points-of-Presence (PoP) sites, across the Midwest, including the major cities of Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis.
