Qwest Communications signed a five-year agreement with Verizon Wireless on Monday to provide wireless service to its customers beginning this summer. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The Verizon agreement replaces Qwest’s current wireless deal with Sprint, although that agreement doesn’t end until February, 2009.
Qwest customers will be able to get Verizon services bundled with their home phone or DSL package and buy Verizon phones and services at Qwest stores and call centers. Qwest customers who have current Sprint wireless plans will be transitioned to Verizon service, Qwest spokeswoman Jennifer Barton said.
