DENVER -- Long-distance phone customers in Montana can now benefit from Qwest Communications’ competitive, low rates for residential and small business long-distance phone service (NYSE: Q). Starting today, customers can take advantage of plans designed to meet specific customer calling needs. With Qwest’s new long-distance offerings, the company continues to deliver the Spirit of Service through simple pricing, the convenience of one bill and additional savings for customers who purchase a package of Qwest services. Qwest long-distance customers will experience exceptional service quality with clear and reliable calls, simple bills and an excellent customer experience. “The availability of long-distance will allow us to provide our customers with a full suite of services to stay in touch with family and friends,” said Annette Jacobs, president of Qwest consumer markets group. “We’re proud to re-enter the long-distance market, and look forward to providing our Montana customers with the savings, service and convenience they have come to expect from Qwest.” Qwest has created a variety of new long-distance service offerings that allow customers to choose the plan that best meets their needs. Residential plan highlights include: If you talk a little:

  • Qwest 10 Cent Single Rate Plan – All calls from home within the United States are $0.10 per minute, any time of day, any day of the week. No minimums, no monthly service fees.

  • Qwest 7 Cent Preferred Plan – With 30 percent additional savings for customers who subscribe to a Qwest home phone service package, the Preferred plan offers state-to-state calls at $0.07 per minute, and $0.10 per minute for in-state calls with no minimums and no monthly service fees.

If you talk a lot:

  • Qwest 5 Cent Saver Plan – Designed for customers who spend at least $10.00 per month. State-to-state calls within the United States from your home are $0.05 per minute, in-state calls are $0.10 per minute, with a $10.00 monthly minimum.

  • Qwest Unlimited Long Distance Plan – For frequent callers, Qwest offers unlimited direct-dialed voice calls from your home phone for one monthly fee of $34.95.

  • Qwest Preferred Unlimited – Additional savings for Qwest package customers delivers unlimited direct-dialed voice calls from your home for only $30.00 per month.

In addition, two simple new packages allow customers to choose the right communications tools for their needs and enjoy additional cost savings by purchasing multiple features from Qwest. Qwest delivers the convenience of all these choices, including a home phone line and features on one bill, with only one number to call for any service needs. With PreferredChoice, residential customers get their home phone line plus their choice of as many as 10 of the most popular features, such as Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail and Security Screen, for only $34.99 per month. Customers can then add wireless and high-speed Internet service for a discounted price, along with long-distance service at Preferred rates. With all these Qwest services, consumers stand to save up to $300 each year. ValueChoice allows consumers to get their home phone line as well as four of the most commonly selected services including Caller ID and Call Waiting - for a low monthly rate of $24.99. Again, Montana customers can add long-distance service at our special Preferred rates, and choose wireless service and/or high-speed Internet service for an additional discount. For small businesses, the company now offers:

  • Qwest Long Distance Advantage (QLDA) Plan – Targeted at businesses that spend anywhere from a few dollars to several thousand dollars per month on long-distance, the QLDA plan bases long-distance rates on term commitments and the total amount spent on Qwest services per month. Customers agreeing to a one-year term can receive better rates. QLDA offers small businesses the ability to aggregate all Qwest services and receive very competitive long-distance rates.

  • In addition, businesses that sign-up for QLDA within the next 60 days may benefit from an introductory charter rate between five and six cents for state-to-state calls, depending on flexible monthly term and volume commitments. These rates apply to direct dialed calls as well as inbound toll-free service.
