Change in coporate business philosophy

by Legion125    Feb 15, 2008, 6:27 PM

Several articles state that Qwest is renegotiating with Sprint on how the service is resold through the telco. Qwest wants to copy the model they use for reselling Direct TV. Currently Qwest acts as a go-between for Direct TV and the customer. Direct TV handles the installation/equipment and CS. Qwest just bundles the service with your bill in which you get a bundling discount.

An analyst also reports that due to the large rural area that Qwest covers, customers are not getting the coverage Sprint promises. He recommends that Qwest partner with a different carrier that better suits the regions needs.

Since Qwest is currently an MNVO, does this mean that they are going to get out of the cell phone business and just act as a middleman? Who will Qwest partner with? Verizon or ATT or T-MO?
