Global Cloud Provider Selects Zayo for Dark Fibre in Canada

Ring expands Zayo’s fibre footprint in Montreal  

BOULDER, Colo. – April 11, 2018 – A global cloud provider has selected Zayo Group Holdings (NYSE: ZAYO) for a high-capacity dark fibre ring in the Montreal metro area. Zayo will extend its existing dense network in Montreal, building a 60-kilometer (km) ring for the anchor tenant along the South Shore, the city’s growing technology and data centre hub.

The deployment will support the customer’s strategy to significantly expand its presence in Montreal, ultimately connecting multiple data centres. With its favorable location and cost-effective power, the South Shore has become an attractive location for data centres, cloud providers and webscale companies.

Zayo was selected by the cloud provider because of its leading fibre network in Canada, deep experience in building high-performance fibre network and flexibility in planning for the customer’s continued growth.

The network will further densify Zayo’s Montreal network, expanding it into several metro municipalities. The build will include an expansion cable, with ample capacity for expected follow-on sales in multiple sectors. Montreal is a leading North American commercial hub and a growing centre for finance, media, artificial intelligence (AI), gaming and other large enterprise.

This project enables us to further expand our Canadian footprint and deliver the high-performance communications infrastructure that this long-standing customer merits,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fibre Solutions at Zayo. “We expect to capture the benefits of scale leveraging our dense Montreal footprint and these new success-based routes.”
