Cox to pay Qwest $2.2 million for Arizona flap

Cox Communications will pay Qwest Communications about $2.2 million and could be further fined by the Arizona Corporation Commission after Cox's alleged unauthorized use of Qwest customer landline connections at apartment complexes in Arizona. The $2.2 million payment will reimburse Qwest the money it is owed for use of the lines, but the state regulator's staff also recommended that Cox be fined between $80,000 and $4 million. A final decision on the fine will be reached at a hearing in late July.
