Vergent Communications is excited to announce the completed acquisition of assets owned by Deep Ellum-based companies, Opus3 and EllumNet.

“We are excited about the opportunity to leverage the resources of these two dynamic companies. At the top of that list are the talented, dedicated, and motivated team of professionals led by David Herr,” said Will Gibson, President of Vergent Communications.

Opus3 provides ultra-high speed voice and data connectivity for businesses, events and venues throughout Dallas and North Texas. EllumNet enables communities to benefit from a locally-staffed and supported alternative to legacy cable companies, and brings greater data speeds at competitive prices to business and residential customers. Both companies began offering service in 2015. Vergent will leverage a larger staff and range of connectivity services, along with increased support infrastructure and capital resources, along with the Opus3 and EllumNet assets, to accelerate growth of ultra-high speed voice and data connectivity for businesses, events and venues, and broaden the geographic footprint of Vergent’s residential high speed services.

“We are humbled by the Dallas business partners who’ve aided this strategic transaction, and look forward to expanding the services we can offer to customers throughout North Texas,” said David Herr, Chief Technology Officer for Opus3 and EllumNet.

Jon Hetzel, with Madison Partners, has many tenants in Deep Ellum. “The biggest secret in Dallas is that Deep Ellum has the fastest ISP at competitive rates,” said Hetzel. Madison Partners is a client of EllumNet as well.
