Qwest Reaches Broadband Milestone

Qwest Communications is now offering its fastest fiber-to-the-neighborhood based Internet service -- with connection speeds of up to 20 Mbps -- to more than 1 million potential customers in 18 markets. Qwest said this marks a critical milestone in its fiber-optic expansion, and represents a significant leap in Qwest's corporate strategy to expand broadband speeds and capabilities to customers.

Qwest Connect Quantum and Qwest Connect Titanium deliver downlink speeds of up to 20 Mbps and 12 Mbps, respectively. Qwest plans to offer the service to 1.8 million potential residential and small-business customers by year-end in 20 markets.http://www.qwest.com/fiberoptic
