Great Plains Communications closes USA Communications takeover

4 Oct 2021

Midwestern telecoms operator Great Plains Communications (GPC) has completed its previously announced acquisition of USA Communications, an ISP headquartered in Kearney, Nebraska. The two companies entered into a definitive agreement in the third quarter of 2021. The acquisition was officially finalised on 30 September following the completion of all regulatory approvals.

TeleGeography notes that GPC – which is said to be the largest privately owned telco in Nebraska – was acquired by private equity firm Grain Management in October 2018. The telco presides over a 13,500-mile fibre network that touches 13 states.

In 2019 parent company Grain went on to ink takeover deals for St Louis-based InterCarrier Networks (via GPC), Arkansas-based Ritter Communications, Oregon-based Hunter Communications and Florida-based Summit Broadband. In September 2020 GPC closed its acquisition of Indiana-based Enhanced Telecommunications Corporation (ETC).
