February 3rd, 2016 by · Leave a Comment

Here's a  set of interesting metro customer announcements and expansions that are worth a look today:

Zayo is expanding again in Atlanta in response to the needs of a major customer. They will be adding another 11,000 square feet of space to the data center they acquired back in July of 2014, then known as AtlantaNAP. Zayo says that since then revenue and EBITDA at the facility are up 60%, which is an interesting growth data point for the company's zColo business.

RCN Business has been busy in New York City lately. With the help of channel partner ZLH Enterprises, they have hooked up the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on 11th Avenue in Hell's Kitchen. RCN has provided a dual carrier, dual entry solution that will meet the internet and voice needs within the Javits Center's 840,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Arizona's London Bridge Resort has tapped Frontier Communications for an upgrade to its communications capabilities. Late last summer, Frontier says replaced a legacy system with a modern managed system from Mitel. The resort sits on 110 acres along the Colorado River and Lake Havasu.

And Interoute's Easynet division won itself a foothold in the public sector vertical. They have been awarded a place on the UK government's G-Cloud 7 framework, toward which it will be directing more than two dozen services. Interoute bought Easynet last year for £402M, and is no doubt still in the process of integrating the business.
