One of the state’s largest telecommunications providers has acquired a firm in the region.

Southfield-based 123Net said yesterday that it has acquired T2 Communications in Holland.

"We continue to invest in our infrastructure to better serve our new and existing customers," said Dan Irvin, CEO, 123Net. "T2 is an ideal match, helping us achieve our goal of providing the last mile of fiber to more West Michigan businesses."

West Michigan presence

123Net has been in the West Michigan market since 2000, “investing significantly” in the Grand Rapids fiber ring, PoP sites and a data center in the Grand Rapids market.

The addition of T2 brings additional customers to 123Net’s network. T2 was a division of Texas-based CornerWorld Corp.

T2 is 123Net’s third acquisition in the past year.

"We understand that data is the lifeblood for businesses today and that fast, friendly and efficient service is critical,” Irvin said. “Our top priority is ensuring a smooth and seamless transition for the customers.”


123Net serves thousands of businesses across Michigan, with a network of more than 2,500 miles of fiber, more than 70 high-speed fixed wireless towers and four data centers.
