American Fiber Systems was acquired by the Zayo Group, a publicly traded company headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, with European headquarters in London. The parent company provides fiber-based bandwidth infrastructure services and carrier-neutral colocation. Zayo’s primary customer segments include data centers, wireless carriers, national carriers, ISPs, enterprises, and government agencies.
A survivor of the dot-com bubble, Zayo Group was built largely through acquisitions; it took over thirty companies from 2007-2014, including bankrupt firms such as AboveNet and 360networks. An initial public offering of stock raised $600 million in 2014.
Zayo owns a fiber network that spans more than 77,000 route miles in the United States, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, France, Canada, and Japan. The network is connected to 14,196 buildings, including 622 data centers, 7,761 enterprise buildings, and 3,699 cellular towers. Zayo operates a Tier 1 IP network, with settlement-free peering with all other Tier 1 providers. Additionally, Zayo operates 27 colocation facilities with a combined footprint of 204,000 sq. ft. of saleable space. Zayo’s services include dark fiber, wavelengths, SONET, Ethernet, IP services, colocation, wireless backhaul and small cells.
