tw telecom puts more fiber into its Nashville network

tw telecom has expanded its existing fiber network in Nashville, Tenn., a move that extends its network from the city's central business district to the west side of the Nashville International Airport.

The service provider will leverage this market expansion as a platform to deliver its portfolio of data and Internet services to more enterprise customers, including Business Ethernet and Intelligent Network capabilities. 

In Nashville, the service provider serves a number of high profile customers such as BMI and Healthcare Realty Trust.

Bryan Huddleston, president and CEO, Nashville Technology Council, hailed the company's move as an attractive asset for new and existing businesses.

"It is important that our local communication providers, like tw telecom, continue their investments into Middle Tennessee," Huddleston said. "Companies benefit by having access to faster, better connected services to drive innovation and growth."

This buildout is part of a broader multi-market effort to expand its metro fiber footprint throughout the United States. It plans to enter into five new high-demand markets–including Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Richmond and the Salt Lake Valley area--and accelerate the density of its metro-fiber footprint in more than a third of its existing markets. 

It has also expanded existing network capabilities in areas like Memphis and Orange County and in Houston by extending the company's network from the central business district down to South Shore Harbor in League City, and east to Deer Park.
