New route to connect Reno to Umatilla, Oregon
BOULDER, Colo. – February 7, 2018 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced plans for a new long haul dark fiber network between Reno, Nevada and Umatilla, Oregon. The route is anchored by a webscale customer and is generating strong demand from additional customers.
The network expansion will add more than 600 route miles along the western U.S. and adds to the Portland and Umatilla route announced last year. The route, which will be fully underground, connects the two cities via Prineville, Oregon. The expansion creates a diverse route between Portland and other major cities on the west coast.
Reno is a fast-growing data center hub for webscale companies, based on its proximity to Silicon Valley, affordable real estate and industrial power and a favorable tax environment.
“The new route completes a piece of the puzzle that the Western U.S. needs to connect the dots between content companies’ core data center locations in a way no other carriers can provide,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “As more companies add data centers in Oregon and Nevada, Zayo is well positioned to provide them with high-capacity fiber infrastructure.”
