Time Warner Cable Business expands Teleworker availability
Time Warner Cable Business Class has expanded the availability of its Teleworker Solutions, which includes four bundled packages to pick from, across its Texas, Mid-West and Pacific West markets.
The bundles combine high-speed Internet with business class phone and managed security to meet the needs of remote office workers. Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) first launched Teleworker Solutions in February across the greater New York City area, New York State, New England and the Carolinas. The initial rollout included Time Warner Cable’s DOCSIS 3.0 speeds of 50 Mbps on the downstream, 5 Mbps on the upstream, but latest rollout listed the speeds as 15/5.
“Making it possible for employees to work remotely has not only become a benefit for companies and their employers, it is also an integral part of managing operational expenses, as well as business continuity planning,” said Jeff Greenberg, regional vice president of marketing for Time Warner Cable Business Class. “Our Teleworker Solutions provide businesses and their employees the tools and applications necessary to increase productivity, convenience and security.”
The bundles include Internet access to TWCBC’s private-HFC network instead of the public Internet. There’s also Wi-Fi LAN access to connect multiple devices to the Internet and secure Wi-Fi routing of all traffic through a firewall to provide an extra layer of protection against unauthorized traffic.
The phone services include unlimited calling and voicemail while the managed security, combines firewall, anti-virus/anti-spyware tools and a desktop personal security suite. TWCBC also provides 24/7 customer service support to businesses.
