Carriers eye military deals worth $24 billion

The U.S Department of Defense is said to be working on several telecom services contracts worth about $24 billion, to be awarded over the next few years. Two of them-the Defense Information Systems Network Transmission Services Pacific II contract and the Uni-Comm contract probably will be dealt with next spring, and several Networx project orders also should come out next year. U.S. Air force and U.S. Navy contracts should be awarded in 2009 and 2010, respectively.
