Zayo, a global network provider, plans to expand its networks to better connect key industries in Toronto.
The expansion will see Zayo pull 140 km of new fiber optic cables throughout the Greater Toronto Area by the end of 2022, marking the start of a series of network development projects planned for the company.
In Toronto, the company already has a 2,100 km fiber optic network connecting more than 100 data centers and 1,400 buildings.
“Zayo is helping usher in a new era for Canada’s fastest growing business and technology community,” said Toronto Mayor John Tory. âThe Toronto region relies on accessible, high-quality connectivity infrastructure to meet the key needs of our industry. We value our partnership with Zayo and look forward to the opportunities these network expansion projects will bring to the Greater Toronto Area.

Zayo also has 30 neutral data centers to provide cloud access. Its target sectors include healthcare, telecommunications, media, financial services and government.
Recently, the company also launched Shielded Internet Access, a unique package that includes Zayo’s dedicated Internet access, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, and CloudLink direct private cloud nodes.
