Paul Bunyan is Getting Bigger

Nope, he hasn’t found a friend for Babe the Blue Ox. It’s Paul Bunyan Telephone Cooperative – they are getting ready to buy Blackduck Telephone Company and Blackduck Cablevision Inc.

I saw the story in the Bemidji Pioneer Online. I wasn’t able to find a press release on either the Paul Bunyan or Blackduck web site – but the article reads a lot like a press release – a really nice one.

According to Blackduck’s web site, they currently offer DSL but have been installing fiber. Paul Bunyan has fiber and offers “speeds up to 40 Mb”. So it looks like good news for Blackduck and very amicable merger.
