Here's a quick roundup of news from the competitive metro side of things:
Zayo has built out its IP backbone into Utah, putting in PoPs in Salt Lake City. Zayo has been taking the former AboveNet backbone further and further beyond its original haunts in the largest markets out into the many Tier 2 markets the combined company serves with a pile of metro fiber. In April they hooked up Las Vegas, and in May it was Minneapolis.
TNCI has finally found a new home. Yesterday Blue Casa Telephone and Garrison Investment Group teamed up to acquire TNCI's assets, and will be operating them as a sister company to Blue Casa. Blue Casa CEO Jeff Compton has big plans for the TNCI assets, with further acquisitions likely to follow.
Tech Valley Communications has unveiled a new 10Gbps in 10 days promotion. The Upstate NY and Northern New England fiber operator has been adding muscle to its management team over the past several quarters, and looks ready to finally show us the benefits of that SegTel acquisition a while back and the more recent TelJet deal.
And down in Atlanta, ColoAtl welcomed a bunch of new fiber. The southeastern fiber builder FiberLight has installed high-count, diverse dark fiber at the company's 55 Marietta Street facility. The additional connectivity will help ColoAtl manage the bandwidth needs of the growth it has been experiencing, and especially with the twin SNAP and GTC projects.
