Qwest Wireless has begun informing its subscribers that they have 60 days to sever their Qwest Wireless service and switch to another wireless service provider. The company had announced in 2008 that it planned to exit the wireless business, and it has been reselling Verizon Wireless services.

Qwest plans to cease offering its wireless network service on October 31, 2009.
