“We are honored that the state has recognized the hard work that we have put in to earn this. I’m very proud of everyone here at Bluebird Network for helping to make this possible,” said Michael Morey, President and CEO of Bluebird Network.
Bluebird Network successfully leveraged a Broadband Technology Opportunities Program grant it received in 2009 to rapidly expand its network and services. In addition, Bluebird Network acquired an underground data center in 2014, to complement its broadband network. This award comes shortly after Bluebird Network broke ground on its underground data center expansion.
