Qwest plugs more Arizona regions into VDSL2-based FTTN

Qwest has been hard at work lately in expanding the availability of its FTTN-based service in its respective local service territories, and its latest deployments in Phoenix and Tucson, AZ areas reflect that ongoing trend.

Offering 40 Mbps download speeds and 20 Mbps upload speeds, customers can purchase the service standalone for $109.99 or $99.99 if bundled with other services.

Following other recent FTTN rollouts in New Mexico and Utah, Qwest will bring the service to 10 Arizona locations, including Cave Creek, Higley, Laveen, Marana, Maricopa, Mesa, Oro Valley, Queen Creek, Tempe and Tucson. In Arizona, Qwest currently has offered its FTTN service to six Arizona markets, including Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria Phoenix and Scottsdale.

Since launching its VDSL2-based FTTN service last July in various segments of its 14-state territory, the service is now available to about 3.5 million customers. As of the end of Q4 09, Qwest had 420,000 total FTTN subscribers.
