BOULDER, Colo.—October 21, 2014—Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), an international provider of Bandwidth Infrastructure services, today announced a major network expansion in its headquarters market, Boulder, Colo. The expansion adds 93 route miles to Zayo’s network throughout the Boulder area, and is expected to be complete by the end of 2014.
Zayo serves a wide range of customers in Boulder that require high-bandwidth network connectivity, including startups, internet content and cloud computing service providers, as well as major educational institutions. By investing in its Boulder network, Zayo is able to provide connection speed ranging from 1 Gig to 1 Terabits (or 1,000 Gigs). When the expansion project is complete, it will connect to Zayo’s existing 800 route mile Front Range fiber footprint and will be used to provide customers access to Zayo’s full suite of services including Ethernet, wavelengths, IP, video transport, and dark fiber.
“Boulder has one of the fastest-growing tech job markets in the country and is the home of numerous startups whose businesses depend on having cost effective access to high-speed bandwidth,” said Matt Erickson, president of physical infrastructure at Zayo. “Investing in the expansion of our network on the Front Range allows us to support this technology-driven community as it continues to grow and establish itself as a leader and destination for startups.”
One beneficiary of the Boulder network expansion is Boulder Valley School District (BVSD).
“BVSD’s partnership with Zayo provided a new network connection to a school site not previously on the district network, and additional network diversity and hardening,” said Andrew Moore, chief information officer at Boulder Valley School District. “With public funding tight, finding public/private partnership opportunities, like the one with Zayo, enabled funding for the district to distribute over 1600 digital devices throughout our schools.”
