SureWest Expands With Kansas City Data Center

Telecom service provider SureWest Communications (SURW) has completed a new data center in Lenexa, Kansas to provide colocation services to support company’s midwest expansion. Based in Northern California for more than 90 years, SureWest expanded into the Kansas City region in February 2008 with the acquisition of Everest Broadband.

The new facility in Lenexa complement two data centers in its home base of Sacramento, Calif. and offers expanded disaster recovery options for businesses in both markets. SureWest converted existing space in its Lenexa facility for data center use.

“The new Kansas City data center helps address the existing demand among local
businesses for disaster recovery and business continuity efforts,” said Ed
Butler, SureWest’s executive director of commercial sales. “Our customers will
now be able to take advantage of, and protect their networks with the very
same infrastructure and environmental protections that we have in place to
secure our own enterprise network.”

  1. This is great news, especially for business owners. Kansas City Colocation centers are also helpful for the state, it would give Kansas' economy a boost! This is definitely amazing.

  2. Cavern Technologies is also in Lenexa and is carrier neutral. SureWest is one of many carriers to choose from. They offer private suites (drywalled not caged) so no one can see my storage area..
