“A big thank-you to Zayo and their partnership with EAGLE-Net to ensure continuity of services to customers, particularly Colorado’s schools and community institutions,” said Gov. John Hickenlooper.

“As vested members of the Colorado community and leaders within broadband, we believe they can be the bridge that connects the potential to the sustainable reality.”

“Zayo’s core competency is the design, implementation and successful management of broadband networks to ensure speed and reliability,” said Brent Fontana, director of Zayo Strategic Alliances.

“Our first priority is a seamless transition and continuity of service because we understand the importance of reliable, high-speed connectivity to Colorado schools and community institutions.”

Zayo owns and operates an 84,000-mile fiber network in the U.S. and Europe. Over the last two years, Zayo has provided fiber connectivity to schools in Greeley and Boulder.

“Zayo is an excellent choice for this role," said Mike Ryan, EAGLE-Net president. “They are Colorado-based, have a history of successful public-private partnerships and have a track record of operating fiber networks successfully and efficiently.”
