STRATA Networks and Avative Announce Merger

STRATA Networks, the largest independent telecommunications cooperative in Utah, announced that it has acquired a majority stake in Avative, an Internet Service Provider based in Saratoga Springs. This acquisition will accelerate the companies' mutual goals to bring fiber internet to a broader market throughout Utah, helping STRATA to grow and ultimately benefit the local cooperative.

Avative provides residential and business services over fiber and fixed wireless solutions, and their talented team has a long track record of providing service in the Saratoga Springs area. Like STRATA, Avative has grown significantly in recent years and has been looking for the right partner to continue that growth. Having been approached by many others over the years, the Avative team felt that STRATA was the right choice for a partner because their goals aligned with one another and STRATA’s reputation, both locally and online, complements those goals.

“STRATA has the type of people we want to work with and the type of organization that will help us grow,” stated Sterling Jacobsen, Avative Founder. “It has been a very rewarding journey and we’re looking forward to growing with the STRATA team.”

With 70 years of industry experience, STRATA has a well-established telecommunications footprint throughout the Uintah Basin and other areas of the state. This acquisition comes at a time of tremendous growth for STRATA and will further enhance the company’s ability to deploy fiber infrastructure more broadly throughout Utah, while also complementing its work as a network operator for municipal fiber networks.

“Collaboration is very important to STRATA, and we owe a lot of our success to the partnerships that we have formed over the years,” said Bruce Todd, CEO/General Manager of STRATA Networks. “This acquisition is no different and we feel confident that joining forces with Avative will allow us to further diversify our operations and expand throughout one of Utah’s fastest growing cities. We welcome Avative to our team and look forward to a bright future with them.”
