Zayo to deploy fibre ring for Six Degrees

30 September 2014 |


Zayo Group is to deploy a dark fibre ring in London for converged technology infrastructure provider Six Degrees Group (6DG).

As part of the move, Zayo will connect key PoPs across London, enabling 6DG access to Zayo’s fibre network.

The network is expected to be complete by the end of 2014.

“Zayo was also the only provider covering all the strategic locations we were seeking with the diversity and ability to meet our need for a rapid deployment. We already use Zayo’s fibre in our core network and for some of our customer links, so we are keen to continue building a long-term relationship with them as our business grows,” said Campbell Williams, group strategy and marketing director, 6DG.

Zayo has rapidly expanded its presence across Europe during 2014, and in June, completed a 100G upgrade on its long-haul network in the region.
