Qwest Reaches DSL Milestone


Qwest Communications International Inc. is a millionaire, at least when it comes to digital-subscriber-line customers.

The telco said Monday that it has reached the 1 million-subscriber mark for its DSL service.

Qwest added that it has had four consecutive quarters of double-digit DSL-subscriber growth.

"Customers are rewarding our energy and focus on DSL," Qwest executive vice president of product and marketing Dan Yost said. "We understand how important high-speed Internet access is to customers, and we will continue to expand our broadband offerings in 2005 while leveraging the DSL infrastructure we currently have in place."
