Multinational Bank Selects Zayo for Dark Fiber

Press Release

Solution provides core infrastructure over Zayo’s existing fiber

BOULDER, Colo. –
A U.S.-based multinational bank has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc.
(NYSE: ZAYO) for long haul and metro dark fiber. The dark fiber will
connect the bank’s new data centers with its existing fiber network. The
solution leverages a popular long haul route and metro fiber in the U.S.

The solution will utilize approximately 1,100 route miles from Zayo,
spanning four states. By leveraging network that is largely in place,
Zayo expects to generate strong IRR and unlevered cash flow from the
10-year contract.

Banks and financial services companies are increasingly turning to dark
fiber for their bandwidth-intensive core transport, including file
sharing, large file transfers, business intelligence applications and
data analysis. Zayo’s dark fiber is ideal for multi-location enterprises
that want to light and manage their own networks.

“Zayo’s dark fiber backbone will enable the customer to expand its core
network and support future capacity requirements,” said Jack Waters, CTO
and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “The route provides the
customer with the shortest option between two key markets, which
requires the least amount of optical equipment.”

The route is also being utilized by several major webscale companies for
high-capacity, low-latency infrastructure.
