Data Leader 123.Net Broadens Reach in Acquisition of MICA.Net


123.Net Inc. — a high-speed fixed wireless, voice, and data provider in Southfield — has expanded its reach with its acquisition of Michigan Internet Communications Association, one of the first regional Internet service providers in southeast Michigan.

As part of the transaction, 123.Net will gain MICA’s former customers — more than 80 percent of which are Fortune-1000 corporations.

“Our top priority is to facilitate a smooth transition for the MICA clients,” says Dan Irvin, CEO of 123.Net, which serves thousands of businesses in metro Detroit, Ann Arbor, Saginaw, Flint, Lansing, and Grand Rapids. “We understand that clients have infused technology into virtually all aspects of their business and personal lives and that total continuity is of critical importance.”

123.Net’s fiber networks span more than 2,100 route miles and include 40 wireless points-of-presence sites across the state.

“We continue to grow our infrastructure and service agreements through a series of strategic initiatives that include capital investment, partnerships, and acquisitions,” Irvin says.  “MICA brings additional resources that are well aligned with our business model and market plans. As a result, our clients, new and existing, will be better served.”
