Qwest and Verizon Wireless have signed an agreement whereby Qwest will sell Verizon Wireless's phones and services to its customers. Qwest's landline subscribers will have access to all of Verizon Wireless's phones, modems, voice and data services. They will be able to purchase these products directly from Qwest's retail, online and call-in centers. Qwest's customers will be able to receive bills from Verizon Wireless separately, or bundled with their existing landlines. The agreement will last for five years.

Good for Verizon. . . . .

Not so good for Sprint. Wow, is there anything that can turn Sprint's luck around now? 😛

Or create some type of virus that effects At&t's gsm network and they'll be just fine 😎
This looks like the begining of the Verizon landline big brother buying Qwest. WOO HOO!
Quick question...how did this turn in to being about Sprint? One partnership is going to drown them??? At least it's good to know that we have people thinking about Sprint all the time 🙂
Took one day to answer that question.

Well this kinda sucks for the current Verizon Direct/Indirect stores, the already very saturated markets are even more saturated now.
The bigger picture is that Qwest/VZW will be able to offer bundle packages now.
What is going to hurt the indirects the most is, if they buy through Qwest they are going to get a "Bundle Discount" on their VZW bill. Which depending on how many services they have with Qwest, can be as high as $17 a month.
