BOULDER, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
Zayo Group (News - Alert), LLC ("Zayo"), an international provider of Bandwidth

Northern California fiber network. The expansion adds 550 route miles of
Dark Fiber in the San Francisco Bay Area, throughout downtown San

Alto, San Jose, Walnut Creek and Fairfield. Construction on the project
will start in May 2014 and is scheduled for completion in June 2016.

operations. Zayo's existing San Francisco fiber network includes 920
route miles and 443 buildings, connecting customers to deep metro and

Francisco allowing access to its full suite of high-bandwidth solutions
such as cloud connectivity, video transport, Dark Fiber, Ethernet,
Wavelength and IP services.
"This expansion is the result of strong growth and demand from our
existing customers, as well as new opportunities from prospective
customers across the region," says Matt Erickson, president of Zayo
Fiber & Transport Infrastructure at Zayo Group. "Increasing our fiber
network by more than 50% in one of the country's most bandwidth
intensive regions provides important connectivity for our customers."
