our technology combined with the skill and savvy of our independent Product Specialists." commented Adam Edwards, president

of DS3 circuits with Broadwing, which is a testament to their footprint, customer service, and technical support."

especially in the major metropolitan areas of the country; namely Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City.
