Zayo Fiber Carries Video Feed for Recent Inauguration

LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2013) - Zayo Group, LLC ("Zayo") announced that its Washington, D.C., fiber optic network provided support to the major news networks at the 57th Presidential Inauguration on Jan. 21, 2013. Zayo's Metro Network provided connectivity for video broadcast from the major venues throughout the day.
