Estes Park, CO – As part of our mission to bridge the digital divide, Vistabeam is pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2023, it acquired Airbits High Speed Internet.
Airbits has served the communities of Estes Park and Pole Hill in services such as internet, computer repair, network consulting, and web design. Formed in 2000, Airbits was Estes Park’s first high-speed internet service provider.
Matt Larsen, CEO of Vistabeam, said, “I have known the owners of Airbits for some time and have immense respect for the work that they have done for the Estes Park community. Vistabeam and Airbits have always had a lot of mutual respect. This was a great opportunity for Airbits to exit and transition their customers to a company that already has a strong Northern Colorado presence and one that they believe can continue to provide the service their customers have come to expect.”
The acquisition will add 25 towers of coverage in the Estes Valley, expanding Vistabeam’s growing infrastructure and presence in the state of Colorado that first began in Sterling back in 2011. Vistabeam is also retaining a familiar face from the Airbits team, namely Chris Hess, who has been a Support Technician at Airbits since 2011. Chris and additional Vistabeam team members—comprised of customer care staff and field technicians—will continue operating out of the local office at 439 Elkhorn Ave #3, Estes Park, CO 80517.
