June 6th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

It's been a busy few days for metro and regional fiber:

TW Telecom (NASDAQ:TWTC, news, filings) picked up a large enterprise customer of the Japanese multinational variety. They're providng Ethernet and MPLS IP VPN services for Toshiba International, powering a business continuity/disaster recovery solution between their headquarters and San Antonio colo facility. tw also padded its resume with Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification from the MEF.

Zayo has made good on another piece of its national intercity 100Gbps upgrade promise. They're now offering 100G waves on the west coast between Seattle and Los Angeles, with add/drop points at Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Modesto, and Los Angeles.

The Midwest's Unite Private Networks added an other e-Rate contract, which is one of their specialties of course. The Lawton Public Schools in Oklahoma have signed on for a 35-mile network connecting all 33 schools in the district.

And 24/7 Mid-Atlantic beefed up its management team this week, bringing in Sean Baillie as Chief Revenue Officer. The former Windstream and Intellifiber executive knows the Mid-Atlantic region very well of course, and will be looking to drive revenue growth out of the company's new location in Northern Virginia.
