Zayo to Expand Long Haul Dark Fiber Route from Phoenix to Dallas

Zayo announced plans to extend its long haul dark fiber network between Phoenix and Dallas, adding more than 1,200 route miles to its long haul network, which spans more than 16,000 route miles across the United States and Europe.

Zayo said this expansion project is driven by an anchor tenant on the route. The route will provide direct connectivity from California’s Bay Area to Dallas, and expand service between markets such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, Ariz., southern New Mexico, El Paso, Tex., Dallas, and Denver.

The project is under construction and should be complete in the fourth quarter of 2016.

  • In December 2014, Zayo announced the construction of a new 1,000 route mile network from Omaha to Dallas.
  • In January 2015, Zayo announced a route between Salt Lake City and Sacramento, which will add more than 800 route miles to Zayo’s long haul network.
