Share this on social media:

Bluebird Network is to add around 60mi of fibre to its backbone in Columbia, Missouri.

The work to strengthen the backbone will involve what the company calls ‘one of the single largest fibre build-  outs in the city’s history.’ This densification project will allow Bluebird to nurture the city’s 5G capabilities with stronger support for new and existing cell towers in the area.

In addition to supporting new tower deployments, Bluebird’s increased fibre count will also boost its fibre offerings to businesses in and around Columbia, enabling the company to offer higher bandwidth options to support growing enterprise demands.

Michael Morey, president and CEO at Bluebird explained: ‘Our wireless customers—the largest cell service providers in the nation—trusted us for their large-scale 5G wireless deployment. There have been a number of requests from healthcare, finance and education customers in the area, and this build will help us serve those needs.’
