More FTT for Zayo in Colorado

January 20th, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Zayo has won another fiber-to-the-tower deal, this time in its home turf along Colorado’s Front Range.  A major wireless carrier has signed on for a dark fiber solution that will help it implement a C-RAN architecture in the region.

ScreenHunter_89 Jan. 20 11.01The contract calls for diverse longhaul fiber connectivity  between Colorado Springs and Denver plus an extensive metro backhaul footprint in Colorado Springs itself.  The project will add to Zayo’s network infrastructure some 124 new route miles in Colorado Springs.  Zayo plans to leverage that buildout via additional tenants in the city.  Zayo already has a fair amount of fiber in Colorado Springs, especially following a major organic expansion all along the front range back in 2012-2013.

Still on Zayo’s inorganic plate is its acquisition of Electric Lightwave, which will add substantial metro depth across a series of western markets.  I expect that after that deal is done, they will find a way to turn some of that fiber toward the FTT business as well.
