Zayo Helps Fans Stay Connected at Super Bowl 51

Press Release

Zayo installs more than 120 small cell sites in Houston to support
wireless demand

BOULDER, Colo. –
Two wireless carriers selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (Zayo) to add
wireless capacity in Houston for Super Bowl 51. Zayo completed
installation of more than 120 small cell sites, including locations
around key venues like NRG Stadium and Discovery Green Park, ahead of
the projected increase in demand. The sites are part of larger projects
to add more than 700 sites throughout the Houston metropolitan area.

The Super Bowl and the associated events drew more than 1 million people
to Houston over a 10-day period, which approximately doubled wireless
demand in the city. Wireless traffic ramped all week and spiked during
the game. Fans at Super Bowl 51 were able to successfully share
messages, photos and videos over their mobile phones, thanks in part to
the deployments.

Small cell technology is increasingly being used to boost network
capacity so wireless carriers can keep up with the accelerating demand
for bandwidth, especially in dense metro areas. Zayo’s small cell
solutions include fiber backhaul and fronthaul, as well as full turnkey
implementation, including RF design, site acquisition, permitting and
installation of equipment. The installations are providing enhanced
mobile coverage, capacity, and speed in high-usage areas.

“We were able to complete the install of these sites to keep Super Bowl
fans connected and to provide a long-term solution for the wireless
demand in this growing city,” said Randy Brogle, vice president, Dark
Fiber Solutions, South Region at Zayo. “We are proud to partner with the
City of Houston, its management districts, and a team of local
contractors and employees to develop permanent communications
infrastructure that will improve the connectivity for Houston residents
for a long time to come. We look forward to completing these projects in
2017 and further expanding the benefits of small cell technology around
the entire Houston metropolitan area.”
