tw telecom wins State of Texas IP service contract

tw telecom (Nasdaq: TWTC) struck yet another coup in the state & local government sector by winning a five-year contract with the State of Texas. Under the terms of contract, tw telecom will supply its suite of Ethernet, converged and VPN solutions to all of Texas' state agencies and departments.

These agencies and departments will be able to purchase these services that fit within the constraints of their already tight budgets.

Having built out fiber network infrastructure throughout Texas as well as providing services for the state government, Texas has been an ongoing growth market for tw telecom.

Those network bets are paying off. Over the past year, the service provider has secured contracts with a host of large business, government and even carrier customers including Gehan Homes, the Army at its Fort Bliss station in El Paso, and data center provider Core NAP.
