BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Driven by customer demand, Zayo Group Holdings (NYSE: ZAYO) has significantly expanded its infrastructure in the Texas Triangle, the megaregion that includes Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas/Ft. Worth, over the past two years. Zayo has almost tripled its network footprint in Texas and increased its customer base by 33 percent to more than 450 customers.
The expansion has largely been driven by several major customer contracts, including fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) builds in San Antonio and Austin for a wireless provider, dark fiber for the state’s fifth largest city and dark fiber for a regional school district.
Zayo has recently signed an additional customer contract that will further expand the company’s extensive fiber network in San Antonio by approximately 25 miles. The build will enable diverse, high-fiber count access to Texas Research Park and the Westover Hills areas. The project leverages in-place network from the 2016 FTT buildout and complements fully diverse routes between Austin and San Antonio.
The Texas Triangle represents approximately 75 percent of the Texas economy and is a growing center for technology, energy, finance, transportation and enterprise. It is home to more than 50 Fortune 500 companies.
“The density of our network provides a significant advantage for our public and private sector customers in Texas,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “Our continued expansion underscores our commitment to the state and provides opportunity for additional customers who can benefit from our fiber network, data center footprint and extensive connectivity across our global network.”
