Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) is working with four major wireless carriers to increase capacity to accommodate continued demand in the Minneapolis area, the company said.
These projects further enhance Zayo´s dense footprint in Minnesota, which includes more than 8,000 route miles across the state and more than 5,000 metropolitan route miles. Businesses in multiple sectors are leveraging this expanded network, with demand expected to continue.
The additional capacity will also meet the anticipated mobile traffic generated during Super Bowl 52. Last year´s Super Bowl in Houston, also supported by Zayo´s mobile infrastructure, broke the single-day wireless data use mark, with at least 37.6 terabytes of data used. An estimated half of the 70,000 fans successfully shared messages, photos and videos over their mobile phones.
Zayo is working to install and turn up cell towers, small cells and DAS antennas associated with signed contracts from four major wireless carriers over the past two years. This infrastructure will be used to densify existing mobile networks so carriers can meet the need for capacity and speed in high-usage areas, both for the Super Bowl and on a permanent basis. Zayo´s mobile infrastructure solutions include fiber backhaul and fronthaul, as well as full turnkey implementation, including RF design, site acquisition, permitting and installation of equipment.
