Zayo continues fibre-to-the-tower roll-out in US

23 July 2015 |


Zayo Group has extended its fibre-to-the-tower (FTT) footprint in Nashville, Tennessee in the US, to serve a mobile operator customer.

The move will see Zayo extend its existing 120 route mile network to 147 new towers, as well as leverage the network to provide dark fibre services to small cell nodes. 

It follows a similar announcement in July which saw Zayo deploy FTT to over 350 of towers for in the Greater Seattle area for a mobile operator customer.

 “Zayo continues to support our customers’ requirements for network capacity that can scale as they grow,” said Dave Jones, SVP of Zayo’s mobile infrastructure buisness. “We expect additional services to be provided on this network which will increase the yield over time. We’ve had significant interest in both small cell deployments and additional FTT services to these 147 towers.”
