RealPage acquires bulk internet provider WhiteSky

Terms of the deal were not disclosed

Proptech company RealPage will acquire WhiteSky Communications, a company that offers internet, video and voice services to multifamily buildings. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed on Monday.

Alabama-based WhiteSky offers its bulk services to apartments, student living, hotels, adult living, assisted living and hospitals at a low cost. The company was founded in 2005 by Allen Cory White while he was attending college, according to its website.

RealPage CEO Steve Winn said that the acquisition “positions RealPage to enter the surging market for multifamily property bulk Wi-Fi services as a key player.”

“We expect to drive post-acquisition revenue synergies with the inclusion of WhiteSky services into CommunityConnect, our one-stop-shop for smart buildings, smart access, and purpose-built managed smart Wi-Fi, all controlled from a single resident app,” Winn said. “We will continue to support our network of system integrators, local exchange carriers, and cable and installation partners, and offer the widest possible options for our customers, manufacturers of smart access, IoT devices, and Wi-Fi communication infrastructure.”

WhiteSky served hundreds of properties at the end of 2020, totaling 48,000 units, the company said Monday.
