FirstLight Fiber provides fiber-optic data, Internet, data center, cloud computing, unified communications, advanced technologies, and construction services announced the acquisition of ColoSpace. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
FirstLight serves nearly 9,000 locations with more than 30,000 locations serviceable by our 15,000-route mile network. The company meets the networking needs of national telecommunications providers, CLECs, and leading enterprises, including healthcare organizations, high tech manufacturing, and research facilities, financial institutions, colleges and universities, K-12 schools, public safety agencies, as well as local and state governments.
ColoSpace that headquartered in Massachusetts, is a provider of the outsourced data center, cloud, and managed services in New England.
“The acquisition of ColoSpace fits well with our strategy of continuing to enhance our capabilities, and as such, it is an ideal match. Its data centers, located in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire, are in the heart of our service territory, and in fact, are currently connected to FirstLight’s fiber network. ColoSpace’s product portfolio is not only complementary but deepens and expands our service portfolio,”
said Kurt Van Wagenen, President, and CEO of FirstLight.
“Now that this transaction is complete, we have added four data centers, with nearly 20,000 square feet of space, to our 11 existing, strategically located facilities. In addition, ColoSpace’s expertise in cloud and managed IT services will enhance our capabilities to the benefit of our customers,” he added.
“Since founding ColoSpace nearly 20 years ago, we have been singularly focused on delivering high quality, innovative solutions to our customers. As enterprise cloud adoption continues to accelerate exponentially, comprehensive IT solutions coupled with scalable, low latency connectivity has become increasingly important to our clients. FirstLight, with its unparalleled fiber network and communications capabilities, is the ideal organization to enable our clients to benefit from these technology trends,”
