Zayo stays on a roll with San Diego expansion

Fiber network operator Zayo announced this week that it is expanding its network facilities into the San Diego, Calif. Area, making San Diego the latest of its more than 150 markets in service for wholesale bandwidth and corporate enterprise services.

The Louisville, Colo. company also recently expanded its network through Los Angeles and is in the process of interconnecting these properties with its other fiber networks following its recent acquisition of 360networks. The closing of the 360 deal is pending.

In San Diego, the Zayo network will extend for 400 route miles throughout the San Diego metropolitan area, from the heart of downtown San Diego, north to Oceanside, and east to Escondido. Zayo will provide dark fiber and bandwidth infrastructure services on its San Diego network.

Zayo said it also will offer leasable dark fiber assets that were not available previously in this geographic area, allowing customers more cost-effective dynamic capacity upgrades.

Zayo has been one of the busiest builders and acquirers of regional fiber networks in recent years. The company announced the 360networks acquisition in October, which followed deals to acquire American Fiber Systems and AGL Networks a year earlier.
