  • search by building, location type, data centers, and cloud providers
  • simultaneously compare prices across multiple products, speeds, and locations
  • access Zayo's network via the company's fiber mapping tool
  • add locations to quotes, including ones not on Zayo's network
  • view and manage existing services
  • contact Tranzact experts via live chat.

Zayo has now added Quick Connect for enabling connection to the AWS cloud at speeds up to 500 Mbps. The feature is available to all existing Ethernet and IP VPN customers to provide connectivity through any of Zayo's AWS Direct Connect sites: New York City, Los Angeles, San Jose, Seattle, Ashburn, VA, and London.
