Alpheus Communications Acquires Net Star Telecommunications
HOUSTON – Dec. 12, 2012 – Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber and networking solutions, today announced that it has acquired Net Star Telecommunications Inc., a Houston-based provider of network and data center services.
The acquisition further broadens Alpheus' customer base in Texas, and current Net Star customers will have access to a wider array of network facilities and services as Net Star operations are integrated with Alpheus.
"While the core of our expansion strategy in 2012 is through organic growth of the enterprise market, we are committed to making opportunistic acquisitions that create network and infrastructure synergies for Alpheus," said Alpheus CEO Scott Widham. "This transaction illustrates the industry trend of consolidating non-facility-based providers with facility-based providers like Alpheus. Bringing more customers onto our network is a win-win scenario where Alpheus gains operational scale while offering additional, affordably priced services to our customers."
The services that Net Star manages for its customers will be migrated over time to Alpheus owned and managed network and data center facilities. Alpheus' enterprise services, including Metro Ethernet, MPLS, E-LAN, data center colocation and business-class voice solutions, provide the performance and uptime guarantee required for mission-critical data, voice and video traffic, as well as help customers connect multiple locations with ease.
