Qwest launches nationwide wireless through Sprint network sharing

DENVER-Qwest Communications International Inc. launched its nationwide wireless voice service for residential and small business customers as part of its network-sharing agreement announced last year with Sprint PCS.

Qwest said its nationwide plans start at $25 per month for 200 anytime calling minutes when customers combine wireless service with any of the company’s other services on a single bill. In addition to the bundle discounts, Qwest customers signing up for its nationwide wireless offering will receive free evening and weekend long-distance on their wireline service, one-number service enabling calls to be routed to both landline and wireless phones and a Voice Mail Link that directs unanswered wireless calls to a home or office voicemail box and sends a notification to both the wireline and wireless phone.

The telecom provider said it would begin notifying current wireless customers of the pending transition to new rate plans, noting most would have the option to transfer to a comparable plan with new national coverage. Qwest customers in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming will remain on existing Qwest wireless plans until later this year.

Qwest added that it will continue to offer two-way text messaging services and plans to include picture-phone capabilities and downloadable content early next month.
