More Indiana Fiber for Zayo

November 17th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Zayo this week has announced some new expansion plans out in Indiana, a state where they have a long history of both organic and inorganic investments. This past summer they completed the acquisition of IFN, but their new plans are for the buildout of yet more fiber.
The expansion will add 200 route miles of fiber across the state. One project will be a new fiber route between South Bend and Grand Rapids up in Michigan. Metro expansion projects will also add density in both Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. 

Zayo has already been in the process of building dark fiber on a route between Indianapolis and St. Louis, which will be in place by the end of 2021. And in Q1 they will be offering wavelengths up to 400Gbps from Indianapolis to both Columbus and Chicago.

Indiana was one of Zayo's first markets, dating way back to their purchase of Indiana FiberWorks back in 2007. They soon followed that up with one of their first fiber-to-the-tower buildouts in Indianapolis all the way back in 2009, which they have expanded on steadily since.
