Qwest picks Verizon And Dumps Sprint for Wireless

Bookmark and Share
Qwest Communications largest seen as the target of the next big telco merger is ending it's agreement with Sprint Nextel and makes a new agreement with Verizon to provide cellular service to Qwest wireline customers.

This breaks with the theory that Sprint Quest merger was only a matter of time. Sprint having no local wireline exposure and Qwest without their own cellular infrastructure and just reselling other cellular services would join and create a company that would be able to compete against the behemoths of telecom, Verizon and AT&T.

Now the spectulation is going to be when a Verizon Qwest merger will happen. Get ready to pay more and get even worse customer service from the phone company.
