LOS ANGELES, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- tw telecom (NASDAQ:TWTC, news, filings), a leading provider of Business Ethernet and networking solutions, today announced it is expanding its existing footprint in Los Angeles. tw telecom now serves business communities across Los Angeles including Century City, El Segundo, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Westwood and other areas of West Los Angeles, with its Business Ethernet and industry-first Intelligent Network capabilities.
This expansion is a result of increased customer demand and strong enterprise opportunities from customers in commercial real estate, healthcare, financial, legal, higher education, government, technology and hospitality industries, which has resulted in a four-fold increase in the number of tw telecom end-user buildings directly connected to tw telecom's networks in the greater Los Angeles area over the past five years.
"The introduction of several new products, access to a wide range of real estate commercial building portfolios, new building construction, and customer demand has helped fuel new demand for our network solutions," said Dan Cross, vice president and general manager, tw telecom Los Angeles. "tw telecom's network investment from Santa Monica, into West LA and down into the southern communities of LA County, will help enterprises receive the benefits of our industry-leading network solutions, including Dynamic Capacity®, the industry's first real-time automatic bandwidth on demand capability."
This Los Angeles expansion follows a recent announcement by the company to increase its network footprint across nine cities in Orange County. Both efforts enable the company to provide service in new areas across greater Los Angeles, and boost economic development in the region.
These initiatives are 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 has entered, or is in the process of entering, into five new high-demand markets, while accelerating the density of its metro-fiber footprint in more than a third of its existing markets through 2014. The company also intends to expand its sales force, including sales and support employees as well as additional operations personnel to support this project.
