Qwest announces 20 Mbps, 12 Mbps on FTTN

Qwest Communications is introducing fiber-to-the-network offerings in 23 markets under the Qwest Connect brand, hoping to have the rollout reach about 2 million customers this year. The two FTTN ADSL2+ services being launched include the Qwest Connect Quantum 20 Mbps service for $99.99 per month and the Qwest Connect Titanium 12 Mbps offering for $46.99 per month. Both services are targeted at residential and small business users. Qwest announced last year that it would be investing $300 million in an FTTN broadband upgrade, but unlike other large telcos, it does not have IPTV in mind as a primary service.
