Zayo to create new long haul fibre route between Columbus and Pittsburgh

Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 16:16 CET | News

Zayo announced plans for a new long haul fibre network between Columbus, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Construction on the success-based route will start this quarter and is anticipated to be completed in 2020, the company said. The build will span more than 200 route miles from Columbus to Wheeling, West Virginia, Washington, Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh. Customers can benefit from reduced latency on the new route and connect to Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Chicago via Zayo’s existing fibre network.

Columbus is home to a strong and diverse base of businesses that span education, technology, government, research, fashion, retail, insurance and healthcare. With its central location and proximity to major population centres, Columbus and New Albany, Ohio have become increasingly important data centre hubs.
