Rogers Communications Inc. has completed its acquisition of Atria Networks LP (owner and operator of an Ontario fiber optic network) following approval by the Competition Bureau. Atria Networks was previously privately held by Birch Hill Equity Partners.

Rogers says the purchase of Atria Networks (based in Kitchener, Ont.)
augments its Business Solutions offering by enhancing the company’s
ability to deliver “on-net data-centric services within, and adjacent
to, the company’s cable footprint”.

The acquisition strategically fits with Rogers’ enterprise strategy to
offer on-net, high-growth data services to small- and medium-sized
businesses, said the company. Atria’s network includes 5600 fiber-route
kilometres and over 3800 on-net buildings in Ontario territories. Atria
serves over 1100 customers spanning the public sector, enterprise and
carrier providers.
