It operates a 9,500-route mile fiber network and has nine data centers across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.

The acquisition will:

  • Increase the number of US Signal data centers from nine to 15, quadrupling square footage
  • Extend US Signal’s footprint to the West Coast with the addition of Phoenix, Arizona; Denver, Colorado; and Bend, Oregon data centers
  • Add OneNeck’s Madison, Wisconsin; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Des Moines, Iowa markets to US Signal’s fiber network
  • More than triple commercial power under management

“We were attracted to OneNeck for a host of reasons, with our shared culture of customer service excellence at the top of the list,” said Daniel Watts, CEO of US Signal. “OneNeck is also a product innovator with deep knowledge of numerous industries. Together, we will provide our customers with greater scale and technical capabilities.”

“US Signal is well known for putting its customers first and supporting their rapidly evolving needs,” said Ted Wiessing, CEO of OneNeck. “OneNeck’s customers will benefit greatly from our combined capabilities and US Signal’s commitment to invest in growth.”
