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.
I think most of us have expanded. :) I know Focal/Broadwing has space in Jersey City at 1 Evertrust Plaza. Joe, I know you aren't the original poster, but I'm hoping he or she is still reading this thread too.
