COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorado-based tw telecom inc. (NASDAQ: TWTC), a leading provider of Business Ethernet and networking solutions for enterprises in Colorado Springs and throughout the U.S., today announced it is nearly doubling its network reach in southern Colorado. The expansion will complement and extend network presence to the company's existing service area of central Colorado Springs, north to Monument, south to Pueblo and west to Cripple Creek and Woodland Park.
tw telecom has been a mainstay in Colorado Springs since late 2006. This market expansion meets customer demand for tw telecom's industry-leading portfolio of data and Internet services, including its award-winning Business Ethernet and innovative Intelligent Network capabilities. In addition, customers with business interests in Denver, as well as out of state, will benefit from the company's diverse route structure that is fully integrated with tw telecom's national network. This allows customers with multiple locations in Colorado and beyond to have a robust networking solution from one single provider. Presently, the company currently serves hundreds of Colorado Springs business customers including government, defense, K-12 school districts, healthcare and IT.
"tw telecom and its local team is proud to be a strong part of the Colorado Springs business community," said Brandon Nelson, branch manager, tw telecom Colorado Springs. "As a result of strong growth here in the area, this network extension is driven by new and existing customer demand. We look forward to leveraging this network expansion to provide Colorado Springs enterprises with secure, scalable and predictable network connections that deliver better, faster and easier solutions to move their businesses forward."
The Colorado Springs expansion is part of a national multi-market effort by the company to expand its metro fiber footprint approximately 17 percent across the country. As part of the expansion, tw telecom plans to enter into five new high-demand markets – Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Richmond, Va. and Salt Lake City - and accelerate the density of its metro-fiber footprint in 28 existing markets. The company is investing this year to rapidly integrate and connect the entire 32-market expansion effort into its national network and operational infrastructure. The company also intends to expand its sales force, including sales and support employees as well as additional operations personnel to support this project.
