Qwest Intros Local Platform
This new plan offers a finished service combination of local switching services, local switching features (e.g. Call Waiting) and shared transport of local traffic at a competitive commercial rate. The functional and operational equivalent of previous products, Qwest Local Services Platform supports continuity and ease of operation for Qwest's wholesale customers into 2011.
Qwest Local Services Platform gives competitive discount pricing for certain volume growth and retention targets. Wholesale customers with increasing volumes on a year-over-year basis will especially benefit from this new offering. Qwest Local Services Platform is a feature-rich local exchange service that allows Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) to offer businesses and consumers the features, fast provisioning and quality of service that customers have come to expect.
"Qwest is the first major telecommunications company to enhance its platform of commercially negotiated offerings for CLEC customers with aggressive growth and retention incentives," said Roland Thornton, Qwest executive vice president, wholesale markets. "Qwest is the leader in facilitating competition and negotiating commercial agreements with CLECs, and we are pleased that companies, without any regulatory assistance, can work out a deal that benefits even more customers."
