Charlotte, NC – Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) today announced Fitts Motor Company of Shelby, NC became the 10,000th Business Class Phone (BCP) customer for the Carolina Region.

Business Class Phone, a cost effective solution for small to medium sized businesses, became available to customers in North and South Carolina about 2 years ago. Customers needing 12 phones lines or less, including Fitts Motor Company, see the value of having local and long distance phone services for one low, monthly rate.    

As the 10,000th customer, TWCBC will present Fitts Motor Company with a gift pack, including 4 luxury suite tickets to see the Charlotte Bobcats at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.

Located in Shelby, NC, Fitts Motor Company has been in business for 21 years providing low to moderate priced used automobiles. Owner Tom Fitts made the switch to TWCBC’s Business Class Phone to save money and receive one simple bill for his company’s communication needs. TWCBC specializes in this area by providing customized communications solutions that fit the unique needs of any business. “We will save approximately $100 per month by switching to Business Class Phone from Time Warner Cable Business Class,” said Fitts.

 “This milestone is significant because it solidifies TWCBC’s presence as a premier phone provider in North and South Carolina,” says Maureen Rooney, Time Warner Cable Business Class president.   “To attain 10,000 customers in less than 2 years with a new product is a great testament to the reliability of Business Class Phone and the dedication of our employees to provide top-notch customer service.”

Launched in North and South Carolina in September 2007, Business Class Phone is a crystal-clear, digital voice service for businesses with 12 phone lines or less.
