A Texas-based internet provider has made another acquisition in Lancaster County.
Next Internet, which in 2021 bought Internet providers based in Lincoln, Waverly and Hickman, announced Wednesday that it has bought Bluestem Network. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Bluestem Network, formerly known as Bluestem Fiber, provides high-speed Internet service in Lancaster and Seward counties.
NextLink, which provides services to many communities in Lancaster and surrounding counties, said it will use the acquisition to continue expanding in Southeast Nebraska.
