My guess (this being NJ) is an aftereffect of the 9/11/2001 disaster.
By five years after, most companies who could be affected by such an
outage may have relocated a continuing-operations set of machines to one
or more colo data centers.  I don't know why the data centers would not
have expanded to meet the influx, though.
