Qwest Communications International is shifting its IP efforts into high gear with a business-class offering that combines voice and data services.
Targeted to business customers, Qwest's OneFlex Integrated Access service is designed to work with legacy telephony infrastructure, including PBXs. It also sports a Web-based portal for customers who want to make service changes on the fly, and offers up to 13 lines and a T-1 equivalent data line.
Qwest has launched the service in 13 markets: Albuquerque, N.M.; Billings, Mont.; Bismarck, N.D.; Boise, Idaho; Casper, Wyo.; Denver, Colo.; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis, Minn.; Omaha, Neb.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Portland, Ore.; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Seattle, Wash.
Later this year, Qwest plans to extend it to several markets in and out of its traditional territory, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
