Colorado-based Zayo Group Holdings Inc. has announced more investment and expansion of network infrastructure in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne. The company says statewide expansion plans include adding more than 200 route miles over the next two years.
Zayo says the region’s growing tech sector and Indiana’s reputation as a business-friendly state are driving demand for increased connectivity in Indiana.
As part of the statewide expansion, the company plans to add a new fiber route from South Bend to Grand Rapids, Michigan. By the end of the year, a new, long-haul dark fiber route from Indianapolis to St. Louis will be available to customers.
“Indianapolis and Fort Wayne are homes to both major brands and local tech startups that are increasing area demand for reliable connectivity,” Dan Stoll, managing director and head of regional network sales at Zayo, said in a news release. “We are committed to continued investment in the region to support customers’ demand for diverse, high-capacity fiber connectivity to enable their growth and ability to innovate.”
Additionally, Zayo says it will offer wave bandwidth of up to 400 Gbps from Indy to Columbus, Ohio and Chicago.
