Qwest Launches 40/20 Mbps VDLS2 Service

Qwest Communications introduced a high-speed Internet service delivering downstream connection speeds of 40 Mbps and upstream speeds of 20 Mbps. The service leverages VDSL2 technology and is available for qualifying residential and small-business customers in Qwest territory.


Qwest has started to roll out these services on a limited basis in certain locations within its fiber-optic-fast Internet footprint, including Denver, Tucson, Salt Lake City, and Minneapolis/St. Paul. In the coming months, Qwest plans to introduce these services to select areas within 23 markets, including markets in New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Pricing is as follows:

  • Connection speeds of 40 Mbps downstream with 5 Mbps upstream, starting at $99.99 a month for the first 12 months when combined with a qualifying home phone package.


  • Connection speeds of 40 Mbps downstream with 20 Mbps upstream, starting at $109.99 a month for the first 12 months when combined with a qualifying home phone package.


  • An introductory rate of $5 more a month for qualified customers with 7 Mbps, 12 Mbps or 20 Mbps speed tiers who upgrade to 5 Mbps upstream speeds.


Qwest noted that its fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) deployment has reached more 2 million potential customers in its local service region.
