Zayo expands Fiber to the Cell presence in Memphis and Northern Mississippi

Zayo Group is once again taking out its expansion shovel by augmenting and expanding its Memphis fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) network in the Northern Mississippi area.

Designed to support higher capacity Ethernet services, Zayo will upgrade its FTT network in Memphis and extend it into Northern Mississippi including towns such as Southaven and Olive Branch. In this deployment, Zayo will not only add 34 cell sites to the region, but also expand the total number of on net buildings it has in Tennessee and Mississippi to 493.

Although Zayo has been expanding its presence in Memphis expansion of the area fiber networks ever since it bought since Memphis Networx, its more recent acquisitions of AGL Networks and American Fiber Systems immediately fleshed out its fiber footprint especially in Nashville and Atlanta.

Zayo may have not been able to reveal any potential wireless clients that are signing up for its FTT service in the area, but that doesn't mean the expansion isn't paying off. Northcentral Mississippi Electric has signed a deal with Zayo for network connectivity for its new corporate headquarters site.
