MegaPath Snaps Up Colorado's IP5280
January 20, 2012 - News

Managed services provider MegaPath has purchased Colorado-based IP5280 Communications, a regional business VoIP provider.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, as both companies are privately held. California-based MegaPath reportedly offered jobs to IP5280's two dozen employees, and John Scarborough and Jeffrey Pearl, IP5280's co-founders and managing partners, are joining MegaPath's management team.

Scarborough told the Denver Post that joining MegaPath will mean better support for its 1,000 SMB users.

"The technology changes very quickly in the IP space," Scarborough told the Post. "In order for us to fulfill our mission to become a national premier provider of voice over IP services beyond just being here in the region of Colorado and New Mexico, it became very self-evident that we needed to partner with someone with the deeper resources and the expertise."

To that point, MegaPath will keep operating IP5280's offices near Denver and in Albuquerque, N.M.

“This acquisition helps strengthen our IP footprint and provides their customers a broader suite of services," said Dan Foster, MegaPath's president of business markets, in a press release. “We are extremely pleased to add such a proven IP communications team to MegaPath, and believe that the combination will further establish MegaPath as one of the leading North American providers in this space."
