LOUISVILLE, Colo. – July 12, 2012 – Zayo Group announces its plans to build a high bandwidth network in Albuquerque, New Mexico including fiber optic cable stretching from the South Valley to the foot of the Sandia Mountains. The fiber build, which is in support of a 4G expansion for one of Zayo’s wireless customers, will be 158 route miles of new network. With numerous on-net and near-net buildings throughout the Albuquerque metro, Zayo’s fiber presence will provide access tohigh bandwidth communications for major industries in the area, specifically aiding those based in research and development, government, and manufacturing.
This expansion marks Zayo’s entrance into greater Albuquerque as a Bandwidth Infrastructure provider. The fiber build will cover Albuquerque from the suburb of South Valley to Bernalillo, east to Highway 556, and west to Highway 448. Zayo currently offers high bandwidth communication services from a single point of presence in Albuquerque to other cities across its national network but was unable to offer fiber based solutions within the Albuquerque metropolitan area.
“We believe Zayo’s fiber expansion into Albuquerque will create significant opportunities for Zayo and improve access to high bandwidth solutions in this brand new Zayo Market,” states Matt Erickson, President of Zayo Fiber and Transport Infrastructure.
