Whether your customer's needs are met with existing ADSL/ATM service with third party ISP or increased flexibility and speed that includes Qwest's internet access, the new QBR 2011 Agreement provides you with great new discounts.

Additional product terms, conditions, discounts and contract template information will be announced as it becomes available.
