tw telecom wins multi-year voice, data contract from Andrews Air Force Base

tw telecom (Nasdaq: TWTC) can now put another public sector customer into the win column as the U.S. Air Force will leverage the competitive provider's local voice and Internet services at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.  

Under the terms of the agreement, tw telecom will provide a mix of analog and digital services, including 30,000 phone lines and data services.

This is a high profile public sector win for tw telecom, as Andrews Air Force Base is the home of the 89th Airlift Wing and Air Force One. The base supports more than 20,000 military and civilian main users and plays host to the President and Vice President, congressional delegations, and various foreign heads of state.

tw telecom has continued to grow its presence in both the state, local and federal government arenas. In addition to Andrews Air Force Base, the service provider won similar contracts last year with both Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs and Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
