SOUTHFIELD — 123Net Inc., one of Michigan’s largest telecommunications and Internet service providers, announced that it has acquired the facilities and customers of T2 Communications, a Holland-based telecommunications company.
Other terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We continue to invest in our infrastructure to better serve our new and existing customers,” said Dan Irvin, 123Net CEO. “T2 is an ideal match, helping us achieve our goal of providing the last mile of fiber to more West Michigan businesses.”
123Net has been active in West Michigan since 2000, investing in a Grand Rapids-area fiber ring, wireless PoP sites and its Grand Rapids-Byron Center data center. Adding T2 brings additional capabilities and customers who will benefit from the company’s growing network and customer service.
“T2 is our third acquisition in the past year,” Irvin said. “We understand that data is the lifeblood for businesses today and that fast, friendly and efficient service is critical. Our top priority is ensuring a smooth and seamless transition for the customers.”
T2 Communications purchased three years ago by Texas-based CornerWorld Corp. It was originally formed in 2002 by a Holland-based entrepreneur. The company has a diverse customer base and owns proprietary fiber.
123Net serves thousands of businesses across Michigan with a network that includes 2,700 route miles of fiber, more than 70 high speed fixed wireless towers and four data centers.
The company also says it is actively seeking additional partners who are aligned to its business model and market plans.
Privately held 123Net has been successfully providing voice, data and colocation infrastructure services to enterprises, carriers, ISPs, and technology companies for more than 15 years. It operates a network capable of data speeds of more than 100 gigabytes per second connected to multiple global transit carriers, including Level 3, Savvis, Cogent, Comcast, Verizon, XO and others.
