YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region is an existing tw telecom customer, and the new agreement expands the services it provides to the organization. Under the terms of the multi-year contract, tw telecom will build a fiber connection to YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region's headquarters location and provide its Converged Services package, which combines voice, secure Internet access and MPLS IP VPN in a single, fully managed solution.

"Our goal was to improve network reliability and reduce our overall costs, and tw telecom's Converged Services allows us to do just that," said Wendy Becker, director of IT at the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region. "These new services will allow us to customize and expand our network to our needs – giving us the most flexible and cost-efficient network possible."
