Surf Internet Acquires MiSignal’s Broadband Network
Surf Internet revealed its plans to enhance its scope in Livingston County by investing an additional $20 million over the next three years. This will be achieved through the key acquisition of MiSignal’s fiber-optic broadband network – a move that will extend their reach to over 18,000 rural households. MiSignal, a provider of high-speed fiber-optic internet, aligns with Surf’s vision of offering exceptional customer service and connectivity.
Impacting the Digital Divide in Livingston County
Echoing this sentiment, Surf’s CEO Gene Crusie shared, “We believe that broadband is one of the greatest equalizers… excited to join forces with the MiSignal team… the transformative potential of Surf and MiSignal to bridge the digital divide in Livingston County.” All MiSignal’s internet and residential voice customers will keep enjoying the same quality of service, with additional benefits, such as access to new products and improved network management capabilities arising from the merger.
Continuous Growth and Development of Surf Internet
Characteristic of Surf’s firm commitment is its consistent growth and development efforts. Since being acquired by Bain Capital and Post Road Group in 2021, Surf Internet has seen significant growth opportunities in the region while making great strides in bridging the digital divide. With 29,000 customers across 45 markets, Surf has been successful in enhancing its executive leadership team, finalizing extensive rebranding, and securing necessary grants to expand broadband access in the Great Lakes region.
With ambitious plans and demonstrated ability to execute, Surf’s latest acquisition marks another crucial step towards ensuring broadband equality. The merger offers increased access to high-speed fiber-optic broadband, thereby positively impacting local communities and sparking commendable progress in bridging the digital divide in the Midwest.
