Winstar to provide telecom services to WTC complex.

Winstar Communications, Inc. and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have announced an agreement under which Winstar will provide advanced high-speed communications capabilities to the World Trade Center complex.

The agreement includes the landmark 110-story twin office towers and two neighboring buildings, comprising approximately 11 million square feet of prime office space. Winstar is offering its fixed wireless broadband communications services, including high-speed Internet and data, Web-based information, and local and long distance services, to the World Trade Center's prestigious global commercial tenants.

"This agreement provides Winstar with access to yet another world-famous, high-profile office property," said Rick Uhl, president of Winstar for Buildings. "Winstar' s cutting-edge communications capabilities will help differentiate the World Trade Center complex from the competition and offer tenants the broadband technology they require. This addition also increases Winstar's presence in the financial services/Silicon Alley district of New York City, where access to fast and reliable Internet and data services is as much a necessity of day-to-day operations as voice services."

Winstar works with commercial building owners and managers to provide tenants with a range of state-of-the-art telecommunications services through its national broadband network. Buildings can be quickly connected to Winstar's fixed wireless network, giving tenants swift access to local and, long distance phone service, Internet, video-conferencing, data applications and other advanced telecommunications and data services.
