ICOA Inc., a national provider of broadband Internet networks and managed services, announced today (July 14) it has acquired LinkSpot Networks, a privately held national provider of broadband wireless services to RV resorts and campgrounds.
According to a press release, LinkSpot is ICOA’s sixth acquisition since the company entered the broadband wireless market in late 2003. Previous acquisitions were QGo, Airport Network Solutions, iDockUSA, AuthDirect and Wise Technologies.
“This acquisition continues our consolidation strategy,” said ICOA CEO Rick Schiffman. “LinkSpot’s national network, experienced team and promising market with significant growth opportunity is a strong complement to our growing base in marinas, travel plazas and other high-traffic public locations along the travel ribbon.”
Based in Reston, Va., LinkSpot currently operates broadband wireless services under long-term contracts in 26 states for 80 high-traffic RV resort and campground locations serving more than 20,000 campsites.
Alan Kobran, formerly CEO of LinkSpot, joins ICOA as vice president of outdoor hospitality and recreation.
