Qwest to Offer Verizon Wireless Service

Qwest Communications announced a 5-year agreement to market and sell Verizon Wireless service beginning this summer. Financial terms of the agreement are not being disclosed. Under the deal, Qwest customers will have access to the full line of Verizon Wireless handsets, smartphones and BlackBerry devices, as well as high-speed broadband wireless services for e-mail, Internet access and multimedia services.


Qwest said its residential customers will be able to choose "wireless only" and be billed directly by Verizon Wireless, or include Verizon Wireless service as part of a Qwest bundle with their home phone, Internet and video services, and receive one bill from Qwest for all services. Qwest residential customers will be able to buy Verizon Wireless products and services via Qwest's call centers, Qwest's retail stores and kiosks, and online at Qwest.com. Once billing systems are coordinated, residential customers will be able to elect to have their Verizon Wireless service charges included on their Qwest bill. Qwest customers will receive information in the near future about the Verizon Wireless products and services that will soon be available to them.


In addition, the companies will work together on bidding for enterprise and government wireless contracts, and collaborate in the development of converged services, such as a unified voicemail box for mobile and landline as well as integration of Qwest's IP networking solutions with Verizon Wireless' mobile data network for business and government customers.http://www.qwest.comhttp://www.verizonwireless.com
