Zayo Group Holdings has entered the final phase of its Florida network expansion.

The project will see 2,600 route miles of fibre deployed across central Florida, including Miami, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Bradenton, Lakeland, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Palm Bay and surrounding areas.

The build will provide a backbone to anchor clients as well as carriers, enterprise businesses and data centres that require increasing amounts of bandwidth. As one of a handful of providers offering dark fiber solutions in Florida – and the only provider to offer private dedicated networks in the state – Zayo said the expansion will also support its suite of network solutions, which include dark fibre, private dedicated networks, wavelengths, ethernet, IP VPN, internet, SD-WAN and Cloudlink

“In addition to the first-ever private dedicated network solutions in the state, the quality, density and diversity of our network provide a significant advantage to our customers,” said Marty Snella, SVP of strategic implementation.

“Our expanded footprint in Florida underscores our commitment to extending global reach opportunities to the businesses and organisations that are fuelling impressive growth and innovation.”
