Zayo Wins a Couple of Middle Mile Projects in Nevada

June 28th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Earlier this week, Zayo announced some significant new fiber to be built out in the state of Nevada. The project is a public/private partnership that will see some 800 route miles starting in the state’s two largest markets and reaching deep into the Nevada desert.

From Las Vegas they will be building along US 93 all the way up to I-80 in the northeast of the state, backed by $43.5M from the NTIA and $3.5M from the Nevada DOT. Meanwhile from Reno they will be building along I-80 from California to Utah with the help of $66M from Department of Treasury Capital Project Funds and the State of Nevada. That adds up to $153M in funding, which will go a long way out in the Nevada desert.

The expansion will enable connectivity to some 40,000 unserved or underserved locations along the way. Zayo will use its new Digital Equity Access Network design, which offers pre-provisioned, dedicated fiber backhaul and IP pricing to rural ISPs. Zayo also picked up a nearby project connecting markets in Oregon, California, and Nevada.
