CenturyLink and ATC Court Greater Cincinnati Businesses via comSpark.tech (Booth #41)
ATC and CenturyLink will be exhibiting together at the upcoming comSpark.tech event in Cincinnati, OH, on September 18th and 19th. ATC has locations in both Cincinnati and Hartford, CT. Until recently, CenturyLink has had a nominal presence in Cincinnati. Still, ATC and CenturyLink have worked together quite awhile, serving mutual clients across the U.S. This all changed in Cincinnati with CenturyLink’s acquisition of Level 3 late last year, which made it the second-largest enterprise network provider in the country. Check out the combined network map here.
“We look forward to working closely with CenturyLink at comSpark… and beyond,” says ATC co-founder and managing partner, David Goodwin. We value their partnership and commitment to the Channel. They have been an important provider in our nationwide portfolio dating back to the days of Qwest. With the former TWT and Level 3 networks now being a part of CenturyLink, we see them getting more consideration from Cincinnati-based businesses.”
By acquiring Level 3, CenturyLink immediately enhanced it’s fiber and network assets by 64,000 miles and spread into new markets (including Cincinnati), which is why ATC and CenturyLink are proud to be working together for comSpark. comSpark is Greater Cincinnati’s largest and most highly attended IT event.
In addition to co-exhibiting, ATC and CenturyLink will be conducting two educational speaking presentations at comSpark featuring CenturyLink subject matter experts:
