Great Plains Communications has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire InterCarrier Networks, a regional fiber optic carrier with a high-capacity network spanning Illinois, Indiana, the St. Louis metro area in Missouri, and Kentucky.
Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, InterCarrier Networks provides critical bandwidth infrastructure solutions to telecommunications carriers and major enterprises in Midwestern markets where cost-effective bandwidth transport has traditionally been difficult to obtain. Its services are delivered over a high-quality, ring-structured fiber optic network covering 2,037 route miles.
The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2019 following customary regulatory approvals. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
