Zayo Extends Long Haul Dark Fiber Route from Phoenix to Dallas

BOULDER, Colo. – April 09, 2015 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO), a global provider of Bandwidth Infrastructure services, including long haul dark fiber, today announced plans to extend its long haul dark fiber network between Phoenix and Dallas. The network expansion will add more than 1,200 route miles to Zayo’s owned long haul network which spans more than 16,000 route miles across the United States and Europe. The project, which is driven by an anchor tenant on the route, is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The network expansion will complement Zayo’s existing long haul network and will provide customers with lower latency times and expanded route options in the southern United States.  The route will provide direct connectivity from California’s Bay Area to Dallas, and expand service between markets such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, Ariz., southern New Mexico, El Paso, Tex., Dallas, and Denver. The planned route also enables two new potential routes from the southwest to Chicago. Zayo will offer its full range suite of dark fiber, wavelengths, Ethernet and IP services across this route.

“This new development demonstrates Zayo’s commitment to expanding our network, and that of our customers,” said Matt Erickson, president of physical infrastructure at Zayo. “Zayo continues to collaborate with key customers and construct critical intercity routes to ensure the availability of ample dark fiber that meets the high-bandwidth demands across many industries.”

In December 2014, Zayo announced the construction of a new 1,000 route mile network from Omaha to Dallas. In January 2015, Zayo announced a route between Salt Lake City and Sacramento, which will add more than 800 route miles to Zayo’s long haul network.
