tw telecom is undertaking a major expansion of its fiber network in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Bay Area expansion, including San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland, is part of a national multi-market effort by the company to expand its metro fiber footprint across the country.
tw telecom now delivers direct fiber-based service to more than 30 commercial data centers in the region. Its Its Northern California network extends from south of San Jose to San Francisco, throughout the East Bay into Oakland and Walnut Creek, and north into Sacramento.
"The explosion of growth in the Bay Area tech economy, the renaissance occurring in commercial office parks in the South Bay, as well as increased customer demand for our network services is fueling this expansion," said Dave Ellebrecht, vice president and general manager, tw telecom. "The power, resiliency and security of the tw telecom network resonates with our existing Bay Area customer base. This expansion will enable us to broadly deploy services to meet the growing need for high-bandwidth networking solutions."
