Verizon Purchases BlueGrass Cellular

BlueGrass - NWIDAVerizon today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire certain assets of Bluegrass Cellular, a rural wireless operator serving central Kentucky.

Bluegrass Cellular provides wireless service to 210,000 customers in 34 counties in rural service areas 3, 4 and 5 in central Kentucky.

“We launched the first wireless company in central Kentucky 29 years ago,” said Ron Smith, President of Bluegrass Cellular. “We’ve always known that our customers were the most important part of our business, and we pride ourselves on playing an important role in connecting our community. I’m confident that Verizon will continue to be the same good neighbor that we’ve been and will provide crucial and reliable wireless connectivity to our rural communities.”

Bluegrass customers do not need to take any action at this time. Customers will receive information regarding the acquisition and the array of services that will be available from Verizon, including wireless data services delivered on the nation’s most awarded 4G high-speed wireless broadband network.

The acquisition is subject to FCC approval and other conditions and is expected to close late this year or early in 2021.
