tw telecom customers were minimally affected as a result of our company’s solid preparation in advance of the storm and the hard work and collaboration of our local teams here in New York, backed by tw telecom’s resilient, all-fiber Business Ethernet network,” states Bianco. “As many businesses in lower Manhattan are still recovering, tw telecom continues to meet heavy demand in bringing services back online when previous Internet providers could not. Now is a most crucial time to review the challenges and lessons learned from this devastating storm.”
