Great Plains Completes Pinpoint Buy

Great Plains Communications said it has completed its acquisition of Pinpoint Network Solutions and the Pinpoint Broadband business units of its regional fiber company, Pinpoint Holdings.

The deal gives Nebraska-based Great Plains an additional 1,200 fiber miles to its network, including 135 fiber miles in the Omaha Metro area. Great Plains operators a 6,000-mile fiber network throughout Nebraska, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

“These additional fiber assets will further establish Great Plains Communications as a strong, Nebraska-based provider for both enterprise and carrier customers seeking diverse route options, access to additional commercial buildings, and true redundancy on this newly expanded network that is monitored 24x7x365 from our Network Operations Center,” said Great Plains CEO Todd Foje in a statement.

The deal was announced in December.

“With the formal acquisition process complete, both companies look to ensure that customers experience a seamless migration and are able to start taking advantage of the opportunities this newly created, powerful network will provide,” Pinpoint Holdings chairman J. Richard Shoemaker said in a statement. “The acquisition completion also allows Pinpoint Holdings to refocus on other Nebraska opportunities.”
