Total revenue for the first quarter of 2011 increased 6.9% year over year to $332.5 million, buoyed by strong enterprise revenue growth. The company swung to a net income of $12.6 million from a net loss of $4.5 million in the year-ago period.

The services include Ethernet internet and IP VPN (MPLS) services, as part of a multiyear agreement. The services will connect Bowman's remote offices to headquarters.

Attributing its 26 consecutive quarters of revenue growth to its strategy of continuous investment in people and software, TWTC comments that it plans to hike investment further to enhance profitability.
