Qwest is building the highest-capacity digital network in the world, fully harnessing the power of light. This national infrastructure comprises almost a million miles of the world's purest fiber optics, laid out in a reliable ring architecture and supported by the most advanced transmission technology. As Qwest brings the benefits of digital technology to people and businesses everywhere, the quality of modern communications will improve significantly.
By early 1999, the Qwest network will be operating in more than 125 U.S. cities, and will extend into Mexico and connect to other international networks. We will continue to provide long-haul fiber capacity to Internet service providers, inter-exchange companies, local exchange carriers and long-distance resellers. For businesses and residents, Qwest will aggressively introduce new products beginning with affordable and reliable long-distance telephone and calling-card services.
