Press Release

Zayo’s low-latency routes serve financial sector

BOULDER, Colo. –
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a large data
center provider for dark fiber to connect its East Coast data centers.
The solution includes primary and diverse routes in New York and New
Jersey, providing low-latency infrastructure for the provider.

Zayo’s solution consist of more than 30 dark fiber pairs along
completely diverse routes for the data center provider. Diverse and
low-latency connectivity is a critical requirement for data centers,
especially those that serve the financial sector. The solution leverages
existing low-latency routes in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan
corridor and requires limited buildout.

Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “Zayo’s dark
fiber routes provide the speed, security and performance the provider
