"With our reach extended throughout the Southeast U.S. as a result of recent acquisitions, building our metro presence in Jacksonville is a natural next step," said Glenn Russo, executive vice president at Zayo. "While our expansion is in support of specific customers, the network is designed to serve as the core to our long-term Jacksonville metro network for local and international Bandwidth Infrastructure solutions."
