Birch Buys More Lines

Birch Communications will "acquire substantially all of the customers and network assets of Cleartel Communications, Inc., a leading provider of voice and data telecommunications solutions. Included in the acquisition are approximately 100,000 business and residential access lines as well as a state-of-the-art facilities network in Florida." [birch]

In case ClearTel doesn't mean anything to you, it is a roll-up of UNE-P players concentrationed in South Florida - NOW Communications, IDS Telcom, Nii Communications, and Supra Telecom.

This is the part that bothers me: "Throughout its 13 year history, Birch has built an unparalleled reputation for delivering great service to small and medium sized businesses with a very strong commitment to customer satisfaction." Umm, you went bankrupt - more than once.

Well, they didn't actually say they managed to do it profitably!
