Qwest drops Sprint, taps Verizon for wireless

Sprint Nextel, already struggling this year with a declining customer base and falling revenues, was dealt another blow yesterday as Qwest Communications confirmed it was dropping the company as its provider of wireless services in favor of Verizon Wireless. The move will cost Sprint another 860,000 customers, about 1.5 percent of its 53.8 million customer base. Qwest plans to begin marketing Verizon-branded service this summer, and its customers will have full access to Verizon's premium lines, a sticking point with Sprint.
