Qwest has added 100 more cities where its OneFlex VoIP solution is available for businesses.
Qwest Communications International, Inc (NYSE: Q) announced today the continuing expansion of its OneFlex nationwide VoIP service for business, initially launched in August 2004.
OneFlex is a proprietary Qwest solution initially available to business customers in 26 key metropolitan areas, including 14 cities within the company’s local service region, and 12 major national markets. Now, Qwest offers the service in more than 100 additional cities across the US, including Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Miami, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Orlando, St. Louis, and Tampa, Fla.
The OneFlex service comprises three options: OneFlex Integrated Access, OneFlex Hosted VoIP, and IP Centrex Prime, offering respectively, variable bandwidth, integrated local and long-distance voice service and high-speed Internet access, and an IP-enabled interface allowing current tradional Centrex customers to migrate to a VoIP version.
Qwest is one of the four RBOCs remaining after the breakup of AT&T in 1984 and subsequent mergers, which, following the Telecom Act of 1996 are now referred to as ILECs (see VoIP Acronym Dictionary at this site for definitions).
