Lumos Networks rebrands as Segra following merger with Spirit

Monday 14 January 2019 | 15:10 CET | News
EQT portfolio company Lumos Networks and Spirit Communications said they have completed their rebranding as Segra, derived from an ancient word meaning "to win". EQT Infrastructure III acquired Lumos in 2017 with the aim to expand its fibre business both organically and inorganically, and to capitalise on attractive market trends. The later purchase of a majority stake in Spirit and subsequent combination of the two companies marked an important step in this ambition, it said.
