In 2000, Qwest took a big step up in size and reach with the acquisition of U S WEST, the Denver-based 120-year old telecom giant that served 14 states throughout the West. The acquisition added the size and scale today's market demands of any top competitor, and a slate of advanced technologies -- such as leadership in Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services, advanced frame relay, the country's largest Web-based yellow pages, PCS wireless and a network that features more than 99 percent digital switching.

The combination of Qwest and U S WEST in 2000 created a company with a unique set of assets. Along with providing the best local telephone service in the country - the FCC rates Qwest #1 in 4 of 7 key service categories --Qwest also is a leader in network technology, as well as applications and services. Its advanced fiber optic networks link directly to nearly 30 million customers.

The combination of technologies, applications and experience moves Qwest to a place solidly among the leaders in Internet and Web services.
