HOUSTON, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- tw telecom inc. (NASDAQ: TWTC), a leading provider of Business Ethernet and networking solutions, today announced it is expanding its existing market footprint in Houston by extending the company's network from the central business district down to South Shore Harbor in League City, and east to Deer Park.
tw telecom will leverage this market expansion to further deploy its industry-leading portfolio of data and Internet services to more enterprises, including its innovative Business Ethernet and Intelligent Network capabilities.
This investment in the Houston metro area closely follows a previous market expansion by the company into The Woodlands, scheduled to be complete later this Spring.
"This expansion is driven by customer demand," said Steve Frank, vice president and general manager, tw telecom Houston. "We are witnessing strong growth in the Houston market, and this network expansion helps extend our reach for our existing customers as well as new customers needing our network services and capabilities."
The Houston expansion is part of a national multi-market effort by the company to expand its metro fiber footprint across the country. As part of this effort, tw telecom plans to enter into five new high-demand markets – Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Richmond and Salt Lake City – and accelerate the density of its metro-fiber footprint in more than a third of its existing markets. The company also intends to expand its sales force, including sales and support employees as well as additional operations personnel to support this project.
