Zayo Polishes Off Anoka County Network

June 18th, 2013 by · 1 Comment

Today Zayo announced the completion of its buildout up in Anoka County, to the north of Minneapolis. This project was one of the company’s BTOP awards, under which they got $13.4M in stimulus funds for a middle mile network connecting some 145 local public facilities.

It’s one of their biggest markets, both in terms of fiber acquired via M&A (Onvoy and AFS both had metro fiber there) and via organic build-outs since then (e.g. this large fiber-to-the-tower expansion).  According to their website, they’ve got 1,300+ metro route miles and 600+ on-net buildings in the Minneapolis metro area alone.
