Teleport Communications Group, which was acquired by ATT Local Network Services, 
has/had its Main NY City node in the sixth sub-basement of No. 1 WTC. Almost all 
of this [with the exception of some of the private, proprietary builds (escon,

mirrored in 60 Hudson and other large nodes in NY and NJ.
