American Tower has purchased Atlanta-based Colo Atl, a provider of enterprise and carrier-neutral colocation, interconnection and data center services.

Timothy A. Kiser, a licensed professional engineer in 35 states, founded Colo Atl in 2001. Today, the company’s colocation and Meet Me Room (MMR) space spans 1,470 square feet on the 5th Floor and 16,034 square feet on the 8th Floor in a carrier hotel, 55 Marietta Street.
