NEW JERSEY BELL SPEEDS ORDERS AFTER TRADE CENTER BOMBING

 /NOTE TO EDITOR: The following information may be of use when preparing stories about the response to the Feb. 26, 1993, bombing at the World Trade Center/
 NEWARK, N.J., March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the weekend, more than 100 New Jersey Bell employees worked around-the-clock to meet customer requests for service that were necessitated by the WTC devastation.
 About 10 major businesses and a number of smaller business customers requested more than 1,000 telephone lines and 28 high-capacity data circuits. Most of the lines and data circuits were installed, on an expedited basis, in the Jersey City, Newark and Port Newark areas.
 In addition to the lines and data circuits installed over the weekend, orders for an additional 625 lines and 16 data circuits were received today (March 1, 1993). As WTC businesses assess the damage and locate office space in New Jersey, New Jersey Bell expects more service orders to come in to its Clifton business office that is staffed to handle emergency orders.
 The company's "SONET OC-12" survivable fiber-optic ring system in Jersey City enabled New Jersey Bell to speed connection of the high- capacity data lines. One request was completed in 1.5 hours while the average order completion time was eight hours. Without the SONET ring, such orders typically would days to fill.
