Qwest to cease operations – USA

Qwest Mobile has formally announced that it will be closing down its MVNO service.

The MVNO has said that it will shut its doors on the 31st of October 2009, leaving customers just over 60 days to find a new carrier.

Qwest Mobile only garnered a total of 185,000 customers by the second quarter of 2009 and it brought in less than USD 10,000,000 in revenues during the same period.

Qwest, which resold the Verizon Wireless service, is urging its customers to make the switch to Verizon Wireless.
