Zayo says it is putting yet more money to work down in San Diego with plans to add an additional 5,000 fiber miles to their metro network. The project will add capacity to existing routes as well as extend metro connectivity into surrounding communities such as Oceanside, Encinitas, Del Mar and Escondido. Zayo will also be bringing in connectivity to their intercity fiber and IP backbone.
Zayo entered the San Diego market over a year ago, announcing plans to build out some 400 route miles covering both downtown. While the company has famously expanded into new markets via M&A, the original move into San Diego and this follow-up investment have been a completely organic expansion for them.
Although Zayo did acquire a datacenter in Austin recently, on the fiber M&A front they've been quiet now for two full quarters. Surely that can't last much longer, as while the list of potential targets has been depleted over the last several years it certainly hasn't been exhausted yet.
