I began my wireless mobile data usage with a Qwest Qualcomm mobile phone tethered to my Palm with a cable back almost ten years ago and then moved onto a national carrier as I outgrew Qwest. In 2004, Qwest partnered with Sprint to offer nationwide services. Back in May of this year Qwest announced it was dropping Sprint and switching to Verizon Wireless. Today, Qwest Wireless announced that they are now offering Verizon Wireless service to new residential and business customers. Qwest will soon be contacting existing customers to help with the changeover.
Verizon Wireless is the largest U.S. carrier and this partnership will give Qwest Wireless customers access to this network with the latest and greatest mobile devices. One reason I used Qwest in the past was that you were able to get mult-service discounts so you could get home phone service and wireless service cheaper than individual services. This five year agreement with Verizon Wireless lets Qwest customers choose from their full line of calling plans and devices and if customers make the switch soon they will get some exclusive deals and experience no early contract termination fees.
