Qwest Offers 10GigE Wholesale Internet Service

Qwest Communications will offer wholesale customers Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) over Ethernet with speeds from 2 Gbps up to 10 Gbps within key U.S. metropolitan markets.

Qwest's wholesale customers requiring a large amount of bandwidth -- such as major international carriers, content providers, cable companies, resellers and wireless carriers -- can now order Qwest DIA over Ethernet in 1 Gbps increments.

"A few years ago, people didn't think companies would require this much bandwidth," said Roland Thornton, executive vice president, Wholesale markets. "But with video on-demand and voice over Internet Protocol, we're here now. The Gigabit Ethernet enhancement provides customers with the extraordinary bandwidth they need."
