SPOTLIGHT: Qwest gets ready for the DNC

Some 50,000 people will descend on Denver in August for the Democratic National Convention and Qwest-the official telecommunications provider-is guaranteeing it'll be able to provide uninterrupted high-speed internet service for all of them. "It will be world-class and go off without a hitch," said Qwest's Chuck Ward. "We've done a lot of planning for our infrastructure. We're not doing anything to affect our customers." Qwest is laying more fiber in July and will establish a network-operations and network call center near the Pepsi Center. - Check out the Denver Post article
