Zayo to Establish Data Center Presence in UK
Expansion to provide key scale for Zayo’s European data center network
BOULDER, Colo. –

The new data center is driven by a commitment from a major anchor tenant
and strong demand in the UK. The carrier-neutral facility, which is
located at the confluence of the UK’s major telecom networks, provides
extensive interconnectivity as well as access to Zayo’s global fiber

customers with an excellent option for colocation and high-capacity
fiber connectivity,” said TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s

connectivity to Slough, city center, and even around central London for
connection directly to France and the rest of Europe. We look forward to
delivering high-compliance, network-neutral solutions from our growing
