(The Hosting News) – Zayo announces today it will be expanding its fiber network into San Diego, CA. Upon completion, Zayo’s network will exceed 400 route miles throughout the San Diego metropolitan area. The new network will extend from the heart of downtown San Diego, north to Oceanside, and east to Escondido. Zayo will provide dark fiber and bandwidth infrastructure services on its San Diego network.
This network expansion will provide customers with dedicated infrastructure to improve network reliability and performance. As the use of high bandwidth applications increases, Zayo’s network growth in the San Diego region will offer leasable dark fiber assets that were not available previously in this geographic area. The expansion in San Diego adds more capacity at a lower price point with the opportunity to upgrade when necessary.
“Investing in the San Diego network serves our customers’ bandwidth needs and allows Zayo to expand our presence in Southern California,” states Matt Erickson, president of Zayo Fiber Solutions. “Zayo’s network expansion will offer those in the area the ability to increase dark fiber capacity at a cost effective rate.”
In addition to the San Diego dark fiber network investment, Zayo has recently expanded its existing fiber network in downtown Los Angeles. These markets will also be interconnected to Zayo’s national fiber network following the anticipated completion of the previously announced acquisition of 360networks.
