The project, when completed, will provide more capacity on existing routes and extend its metro network reach into various nearby communities including Oceanside, Encinitas, Del Mar and Escondido.

In addition, the network will provide access to a number of the state's key service provider, healthcare, technology, energy and government locations. San Diego-based customers will have access to Zayo's broader 73,400 route mile national and international network that reaches into 283 markets for its suite of transport, IP, and colocation services.

This latest network expansion in California builds on its existing fiber networks it already has built in other major California cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Sacramento.

The service provider could also use the new network capabilities in San Diego to support the buildout of its 100G wavelength service that it began offering along a new Seattle-to-Los Angeles fiber route in June.
