LOUISVILLE, Colo – July 19, 2012 – Zayo announces a major expansion of its network in the greater Denver area. The network investment is in support of a large customer project although it provides fiber capacity and reach that can be leveraged by customers throughout the region. The fiber build will span the Front Range, encompassing the cities of Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland, Longmont, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and the larger Denver metro area.
Zayo operates fiber optic networks in Denver and Colorado Springs. This fiber expansion will further bolster Zayo’s presence in the Central Business Districts of both cities as well as the Denver Technology Center. The expansion will provide access to Zayo customers from Arvada, north to Fort Collins as well as the southwest corner of the Denver Metro at Ken Caryl.
Zayo’s 521-route mile Denver expansion provides considerable support to the area’s largest industries, namely those of research and development, technology, education, and energy.
Zayo announced the completion of its acquisition of national Bandwidth Infrastructure provider AboveNet, Inc. on July 2nd. Adding this network expansion to the existing Zayo and AboveNet assets, Zayo will have 900 route miles of fiber network in the greater Denver area.
“The Front Range is a key area for future telecom growth and we expect there to be opportunities for further fiber network expansion,” states Matt Erickson, President of Zayo Fiber and Transport Infrastructure which includes Zayo’s Fiber to the Tower product group.
