On Friday, Zayo picked up some international enterprise business. An unnamed 'leading global investment bank' has picked the Boulder-based company's infrastructure to expand its network capabilities.
More specifically, the bank is getting a private dedicated network at the wavelength level. The result is is greater capacity and reach for the company's European core network. Investment bankers without solid, low latency connectivity don't get far these days.
The wait for Zayo's deal to go private with EQT and Digital Colony that was announced two months ago is already feeling like a long one. The news pattern lately has been a contract win every week or so in a different vertical, illustrating the types of deals the company is winning. That's not a bad thing of course, though one might hope to get a few more details now and then.
