TUCSON, Ariz., July 26, 2019 — FirstDigital Telecom, a leading fiber-based telecom carrier in Tucson and the western U.S., hosted the second in its quarterly Technology Series for Tucson businesses today. This presentation featured Joe Snell, President and CEO of Sun Corridor Inc. and it took place at the Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa, 245 E. Ina Road.
The FirstDigital Telecom Technology Series is a thought-provoking series of business presentations. It’s designed to “pull back the curtain on technology” and help business customers know “how” to leverage the benefits of fiber and facilities-based services, according to Christine Morris, FirstDigital Telecom’s Tucson General Manager.
Joe Snell brings nearly 30 years of experience leading regional economic development organizations locally and across the country. Under Snell’s leadership, Sun Corridor Inc. has helped drive significant business investment into the Tucson and Southern Arizona region through primary job creation, resulting in an economic impact of $22.5 billion. Snell knows how to grow businesses and economies.
Morris said, “We’re delighted to give business customers in Tucson a choice. Going FirstDigital gives local businesses the highest quality service from a leading national provider — and a team dedicated 100 percent to Tucson. We live here and work here and want to help Tucson businesses succeed. We invite all businesses to experience the power of Going FirstDigital!”
In October 2018, FirstDigital completed the purchase of metro fiber network assets in Tucson, formerly owned by Level 3 Communications and acquired by CenturyLink. Based on the terms of the sale, former Level 3 customers in Tucson may seamlessly and without interruption choose to be served by FirstDigital.
Before being acquired by CenturyLink in 2017, Level 3 acquired TW Telecom in 2014, which had served the Tucson area since 1993. Many of the senior operations and sales executives now leading FirstDigital’s Tucson team worked previously for TW Telecom, bringing decades of combined experience serving the area’s local telecom market.
