Expansion increases network footprint for major wireless carrier
BOULDER, Colo. – November 2, 2017 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that the company will provide fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) to approximately 70 new towers in Indiana to serve a major wireless carrier customer. Zayo now provides services to all four major wireless carriers in Indiana.
The sale leverages part of Zayo’s 4,300 route miles of network in Indiana. The new FTT project will add minimal network extensions in Fort Wayne, Lafayette and other areas.
This is the second recent sale to a major carrier for mobile infrastructure in Indiana. In 2016, Zayo initiated installation of 234 new network miles of dark fiber south and west of Indianapolis to connect a corridor to Louisville, Kentucky for another major wireless carrier, which has recently been completed.
Indianapolis and the surrounding area has a strong base of financial service, insurance, technology and healthcare businesses, including a leading global CRM company. The state is also home to several large state and private universities. Zayo’s fiber solutions are addressing wireless carriers’ requirements for scalable, high-capacity infrastructure.
“Zayo’s network across Indiana has the capacity to not only provide FTT infrastructure for one of the nation’s leading wireless carriers but also the fiber capacity to support other customers in need of high-bandwidth solutions,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo.
