Bluebird Network, a communications infrastructure provider and operator of two data centers and more than 10,600 miles of fiber, has announced that their anticipated fiber expansion in Salina, Kansas is now live. Providing customers with a digital transformation, residents and local businesses of the community can now benefit from secure and reliable connectivity. 

With just over 45,000 residents, Salina is the 10th largest city in Kansas. This network build will have a Point of Presence (PoP) within the Salina, Kansas community, allowing local businesses and organizations to leverage Bluebird’s full suite of high-quality, high-speed fiber connectivity. Earlier in the year, Bluebird completed a network expansion in Waterloo, Iowa with 11.74 route miles of fiber and now the company can add another 13.63 miles of new fiber route to their track sheet. With this addition of 13.63 miles of fiber route, the Salina populace will find it easier to connect with others, upload data, load websites, and stream on a much faster and dependable scale.

Bluebird is not stopping in Kansas and will continue to uphold their company vision of “having a fiber presence in 80% of communities across our eleven-state footprint with a population greater than 10,000 people,” with the addition of a new, diverse fiber route to Chicago. This project is underway, and projected to go live by the end of 2022, with expansions into Aurora and DeKalb, Illinois. The Aurora and DeKalb communities will gain initial builds of 4 miles and 1.68 fiber route miles, respectively. 

Bluebird continues to bring dedicated Internet access, Ethernet, colocation, cloud services and more to local businesses and organizations across the Midwest in order to enable digital transformation. Due to the company’s expansive state-of-the-art fiber footprint, they are able to continue constructing strategic routes to provide businesses with the tools to communicate, innovate and thrive in the digital world.
