Time Warner Cable Business Class, the B2B arm of Time Warner Cable, just wrapped up a $120 million development project that expanded the company’s fiber-optic infrastructure in Southern California and more than doubled the number of potential serviceable businesses in its coverage area.

As a result, the division believes this expansion will make its enterprise services — including phone, Internet, Ethernet and cable television — available to an additional 125,000 serviceable businesses in the region and saving customers an estimated 10 percent to 15 percent when compared with other providers.

As part of this project, Time Warner Cable Business Class installed more than 360,000 miles of fiber-optic cable (long enough to wrap around the Earth’s equator 14.5 times). The cable was installed in 16 new coverage “rings” that deliver service continuously; in the event of a service interruption, the rings are designed to redirect data in fewer than 50 milliseconds. eliminating the interruption and allowing customers to focus on their core operations.

The 16 new rings target major business arteries in parts of the San Fernando Valley (Chatsworth, Van Nuys), the San Gabriel Valley (Hacienda Heights, La Mirada), Orange County (Costa Mesa, Cypress, Tustin), Inland Empire (Ontario, Pomona, Fontana, Corona), West Los Angeles (Santa Monica), downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and the South Bay (Torrance, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach).

The investment also allowed the company to create 250 new jobs, including positions in customer care, field operations and technical support.
