The Wall Street West region is geographically diverse from New York City and has a separate power operator as evidenced by the August 2003 massive power outage in New York and New Jersey that left northeastern Pennsylvania unaffected. In addition, this region is served by a separate watershed from New York City.
Currently, the area is working with Level 3 Communications (www.level3.com) to install a fiber optic cable from New York City directly to northeastern Pennsylvania. The Level 3 Communications-built optical network will enable redundant, instantaneous data transmission between the two areas, further establishing the northeastern Pennsylvania region as a premier back-up operations location for Wall Street firms. The highly resilient fiber network will provide business continuity, recovery and data replication for the financial services industry.
The region also boasts a well-developed telecommunications network served by multiple providers, including Verizon (www.verizon.com), PPL Telecom (www.ppltelcom.com), First Energy (www.firstenergycorp.com), D&E Communications (www.decommunications.com), Comcast (www.comcast.com), Commonwealth Telephone Company (www.ctco.com) and others.
Beyond the telecommunications infrastructure, the region also boasts a robust transportation network, with international airports in Allentown/Bethlehem and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, along with multiple regional airports across the nine county region.
Major metropolitan areas, such as New York City and Philadelphia can easily be accessed via interstate either via car, or frequent bus service to both areas.
