Zayo Expands Fiber Network in Indiana
Expansion increases network footprint for major wireless carrier
BOULDER, Colo. –
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that the company
will provide fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) to approximately 70 new towers in
Indiana to serve a major wireless carrier customer. Zayo now provides
services to all four major wireless carriers in Indiana.
The sale leverages part of Zayo’s 4,300 route miles of network in
Indiana. The new FTT project will add minimal network extensions in Fort
Wayne, Lafayette and other areas.
This is the second recent sale to a major carrier for mobile
infrastructure in Indiana. In
2016, Zayo initiated installation of 234 new network miles of dark
fiber south and west of Indianapolis to connect a corridor to
Louisville, Kentucky for another major wireless carrier, which has
recently been completed.
Indianapolis and the surrounding area has a strong base of financial
service, insurance, technology and healthcare businesses, including a
leading global CRM company. Indiana is also home to several large state
and private universities. Zayo’s fiber solutions are addressing wireless
carriers’ requirements for scalable, high-capacity infrastructure.
“Zayo’s network across Indiana has the capacity to not only provide FTT
infrastructure for one of the nation’s leading wireless carriers but
also the fiber capacity to support other customers in need of
high-bandwidth solutions,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber
Solutions at Zayo.
