TWC expands business phone service, promotes Witmer to EVP
Time Warner Cable’s  business class phone service is now available to the MSO’s customers in the New York cities of Brooklyn, Hudson Valley, Manhattan, Mt. Vernon, Queens and Staten Island, and also in Bergen County, N.J. TWC added the service in the Buffalo, N.Y. area last month.
The service, offered to small- and medium-size businesses in the operator’s New York footprint, includes unlimited local and long-distance calling in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico for a flat rate. Service features include hunting, inbound and outbound call restrictions, and three-way call transfer.
Business class phone can be bundled with a business customer’s existing data and video services to provide a discounted single source and single invoice for all business communications needs.
TWC has also promoted Melinda Witmer to EVP and chief programming officer, where she will continue to lead TWC’s programming acquisition team. Most recently, Witmer served as SVP and chief programming officer.
Before her role as SVP, Witmer served in TWC’s law department as VP and chief counsel for programming. Prior to joining TWC, Witmer served as VP and senior counsel at HBO .
