By Ken Briodagh August 06, 2018

According to a recent announcement, Bertram Communications has completed the acquisition of Fast Bytes Wireless Inc. This move will result in an upgrade of the entire network, expanded services for customers, and the backing of resources from the entire Bertram Communications family of companies, the company said. Bertram and Fastbytes have a long-standing working relationship, which will continue throughout this transition. Since 2005, Bertram has had a reputation for providing carrier class service to their customers with excellent uptime, reliability, and response times. Bertram is confident the Fast Bytes customers will enjoy the new offerings and enhanced service.

Over the past few weeks Fastbytes has been working closely with Bertram as the towers were migrated into Bertram's network. In the next 160 days, all of the Bertram plans will be available to current Fast Bytes customers. The Bertram Family is looking forward to providing the Fastbytes customer base and new customers alike, quality, high speed internet service on an ever expanding network. This acquisition reportedly is designed to allow Bertram to expand their presence greatly in Fond du Lac and Winnebago counties and bring high speed services to underserved communities.

“This acquisition will allow existing Fast Bytes customers access to Bertram's vast network resulting in increased performance and reliability across the board,” said Tim Wright, VP, Operations, Bertram. “It also positions Bertram to be able to provide service in more areas that are underserved and hungry for better internet access.”

“Having known the Bertram team for years, and running the Fast Bytes operation, this is a natural evolution of the business and the network. All parties will benefit from this. I'm excited to see the changes made possible by this deal,” said Terry Krause, Owner of Fast Bytes.

Bertram Communications DBA Bertram Internet, headquartered in Random Lake Wisconsin since 2005, has made it its mission to provide dependable, high-speed internet service to underserved communities across Wisconsin. Bertram uses advanced technology to grow the network and services as customers’ needs grow.
