Data102 Acquires CIT Colocation Customers

102 S Tejon

Data102, Colorado Springs’ leading provider of colocation and bandwidth services, is please to announce that it has acquired the colocation and dedicated services division of CIT Internet, Inc, also of Colorado Springs

Signed in mid-June, Data102 and CIT Internet entered into a definitive agreement for Data102 to take ownership of CIT Internet’s colocation, last mile and dedicated server customers. “Working with CIT Internet to accomplish this has been very smooth and we’re pleased that the customer base has responded very positively,” said Data102 Director of Business Development Travis Taylor. Data102 successfully migrated CIT’s the acquired customers to their own datacenter facilities by mid-July, and were pleased to offer them a fully integrated management portal.


CIT Internet had a strategic plan to exit the market. “We have long positioned ourselves to be able to hand off the various aspects of our business when it makes sense. For colocation, that time is now,” said CIT President John Messec. This move allows CIT to focus on other aspects of its operation like wireless broadband service. “We’re also glad that at the same time, we now have a strategic partner for our colocation and bandwidth needs,” Mr. Messec added.
