Via News Release

“BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Neutral Path Communications and Near North Partners.

The acquisition adds 452 owned route miles, plus additional leased route miles, to Zayo’s extensive North American network, including a unique, high-count fiber route from Minneapolis to Omaha. The fiber footprint provides Zayo with three owned diverse fiber routes out of Minneapolis, Chicago and Omaha.”
