With a launch yesterday, tw telecom has taken its network expansion campaign to Philadelphia at last. It's a brand new market for tw telecom, starting to fill in what had long been perhaps the biggest hole in the company's national coverage -- the entire state of Pennsylvania.
tw telecom is now offering service at Amerimar at 401 North Broad, Digital Realty at 833 Chestnut, Tierpoint at 4775 League Island Blvd, and Xand at 1000 Adams up in Norristown. And of course they'll surely be hooking up enterprises directly as they build out further into the Philly metro area.
The expansion is powered by more of that Zayo dark fiber they leased late last year. Zayo's Philadelphia presence has been one of their biggest ever since the PPL Telcom acquisition way back in 2007, and owes much of its breadth to infrastructure built out by Sunesys actually.
Launches in two other new markets (Boston and Cleveland) are still on the way. With their Philadelphia market now live, Boston (and New England in general) seems like the last big regional gap left to fill. tw telecom is pushing onward with its existing expansion plan prior to its planned acquisition by Level 3 in a couple months or so. The combined network assets of the two companies should make for an interesting viewing.
