Qwest has started reselling Verizon Wireless voice and data services to its residential and business customers. In May, Qwest announced that it was dropping Sprint Nextel as its provider of wireless services in favor of Verizon Wireless. At that time, it was estimated that the move would cost Sprint about 860,000 customers.
Qwest will start contacting its existing Qwest Wireless customers to switch them to Verizon handsets and calling plans. Qwest says it will waive the contract termination fees for Qwest Wireless customers who switch to Verizon Wireless. In addition, those customers who sign on for Verizon service will be eligible for exclusive offers from Verizon for a limited time.
