Why Jim Cramer Likes Level 3 Communications (LVLT) Stock More After Time Warner Telecom (TWTC) Deal

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer says Level 3 Communications  (LVLT) has come back from the dead, but he reminds investors that the company recently had a split, so the price has not always been where it is now.

Cramer notes Level 3 and Time Warner Telecom  (TWTC) are both content delivery systems, and he says companies do a lot of these deals to get the overflow of Netflix  (NFLX) because not everything can go through Akamai  (AKAM). The more fiber pipe necessary to send through movies and television shows, the more Cramer likes Level 3.

This deal makes Cramer like Level 3 even more and he recommends buying the stock.
