Neutral Path Acquisition FAQ
What’s the rationale for Zayo’s acquisition of Neutral Path?
The combination of Neutral Path’s regional high-count fiber network with Zayo’s established global network will provide customers with an expanded North American network, with more access to key markets and improved options for diversity. The acquisition adds 452 owned route miles, plus additional leased route miles, to Zayo’s extensive North American network — high quality fiber to support multi-city dark fiber and fiber-based lit solutions.
How will this acquisition benefit customers?
Customers will benefit from access to Zayo’s extensive global network and infrastructure, which includes diverse and low-latency routes across the U.S., our pan-Canadian network and footprint in Western Europe. Additionally, Zayo owns and operates 50 data centers and has access to thousands of other buildings and facilities. Additionally, we provide subsea access via coastal landing stations and access to 40 countries through our Global Reach partnerships.
Current Zayo customers will benefit from multi-city dark fiber and fiber-based lit solutions from Minneapolis into Omaha, extending to Denver, Kansas City, Chicago and other major markets. Neutral Path’s 452-mile fiber footprint enables three owned diverse fiber routes out of Minneapolis, Chicago and Omaha.
Should Neutral Path customers expect immediate changes?
All existing contracts will stay in place and Zayo’s commitment is to provide the same excellent level of service Neutral Path customers have come to expect. Zayo will work closely with the Neutral Path team as operations are integrated into Zayo, a process that begins immediately. We’ll be sure to communicate in advance about any changes that impact customers.
