Zayo's Cincinnati network expansion targets wholesale, business opportunities

Zayo, in response to one of its large wholesale customer's service needs, has put its backhoe in action to expand its fiber network in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Unlike the 1990s "build-it-and-they-will-come" mantra to build fiber networks, Matt Erickson, President of Zayo Fiber Solutions, said that its Cincinnati expansion reflects its "approach is to extend the reach of its fiber network to support the needs of its customers."

Through the Cincinnati network, Zayo's wholesale and enterprise customers will be able to access bandwidth services throughout its Northeast and Midwest regional network, which include Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Besides serving its wholesale customers' needs, when Zayo completes its Cincinnati expansion, it will add several miles of new network to its existing network in Cincinnati's central business district. With businesses being along the path of that fiber, Zayo will also double the amount of on-net, fiber-fed buildings and enhance network route diversity.
