A Couple of Wins for TW Telecom

April 21st, 2010 by · Leave a Comment

Competitive fiber operator TW Telecom (NASDAQ:TWTC, news, filings) has been rather quiet of late, but in the past two days has announced a couple of interesting contracts.

Today it was a 12 location deal with Covenant Church, which ministers to some 15,000 people in North Texas.  It's an expansion of an existing relationship in which they will supply co-location, voice, data and Internet services, enabling Covenant Church to stream high quality video of its services to each location.  You don't often see religious institutions showing up in discussions on bandwidth, except of course when listing anchor institutions to connect when asking the government for stimulus funds of course.  Not here though, sounds like they actually burn substantial bandwidth.

Yesterday, they announced a deal for managed data and voice services, including co-location and IPVPN, at CVI Melles Griot.  The Albuquerque-based company may not be a household name, but it manufactures and distributes of lasers and optical gear and parts to the high tech industry worldwide.

Both are bread-and-butter deals for TW, but I'm still expecting the company to make some sort of inorganic move this year.  It's been too quiet in Littleton since they finished refinancing that debt last month.
