Qwest Facing Lawsuit After Alleged Secret Deals


Denver-based telecommunications giant Qwest is facing litigation after being suspected of monopolistic practices. The company is being accused of financially withholding its competitor’s access to their carrier lines.

The lawsuits, brought forth both by AT&T and TCG Omaha, claim Qwest is in violation of the Federal Telecommunications Act, signed in 1996. The act seeks to avoid monopolies in communication and foster a climate of legitimate market competition.

To facilitate this, major carriers such as Qwest are expected to reach agreements with other companies on how to handle calls to their customers. In the suit, it is suggested that Qwest charges different companies different amounts for the access.
