Zayo revealed plans for yet another expansion of its footprint in Indiana today. On the menu is fiber-to-the-tower for another 70 towers in the state in response to the winning of a new major wireless customer.
Which one doesn't matter anymore, just that it's the one they didn't have already as they now serve all four of the big wireless players in the state of Indiana. And of course the state of Indiana is one of Zayo's original markets, dating back to the acquisition of Indiana Fiber Works all the way back in 2007.
Zayo has built upon that infrastructure both organically and inorganically over the years, and that footprint now spans 4,300 route miles in Indiana alone. The most recent announced expansion was the addition of 234 route miles between Indianapolis and Louisville, Kentucky in early 2016.
In this case though, the expansion will mostly build upon existing route mileage in markets such as Fort Wayne and Lafayette.
