Zayo’s Memphis network supports dark fiber and bandwidth systems, including private line, wavelength, and Ethernet services. With this expansion, Zayo’s network will cover more than 425 route miles, connect to more than 350 buildings, and reach nearly every major business and commercial area throughout the Memphis metropolitan area.

The planned expansion will also enhance Zayo’s existing footprint by increasing fiber counts on current routes. In total, Zayo will be adding nearly 20,000 fiber miles of additional capacity to its Memphis backbone, supporting current and future customer systems in Memphis, Bartlett, Germantown, Oakville, and other key commercial areas.

"Zayo views Memphis as a key market, based on our expansive fiber footprint, the unique network topology, and a growing customer demand for fiber connectivity," says Matt Erickson, president, Zayo Fiber Solutions. “We look forward to putting this new fiber to work for our customers and will continue to seek opportunities to further expand our Memphis network.”
