Thursday Bytes: GPC, Comcast Business, Uniti Group, Zayo

April 13th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Two metro fiber/WiFi deals, one regional densification project, and some transatlantic connectivity:

Great Plains Communications has a bit more fiber planned for the Omaha metro area. They will be expanding their infrastructure into the new 157-acre Gretna Crossing Park in Gretna NE. The new park will include a water park and a variety of other facilities for outdoor activity. GPC will be providing fiber Wi-Fi services throughout the venue.

Comcast Business has also won some WiFi-related business in the sports vertical. Along with Extreme Networks, they will be providing a fully WiFi 6E-ready network for Oracle Park in San Francisco. That’s where the SF Giants play of course. The new network will support the bandwidth of fans both directly and indirectly through the park’s ecosystem.

Uniti Group is planning to densify its network infrastructure in the southeastern US. The expansion will see extra metro fiber put in place in the Georgia markets of Augusta and Columbus, the Alabama markets of Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa, and the Louisiana markets of Shreveport and Monroe. Uniti is seeking both greater enterprise reach and local access for its wholesale customers.

And Zayo has invested in a new transatlantic option. They have put in place the lowest latency offering between New York City and Manchester over in northern England. From Manchester they can leverage other options, such as their newly built Zeus subsea cable to Amsterdam. Manchester is becoming a key piece of Zayo’s European infrastructure.
