Qwest Communications International Inc. this week signed a new national agreement with MiCTA and the ATAlliance, making it the voice, data and IP services provider for the groups members.
MiCTA/ATA aggregates demand for products and services, including telecommunications, for its members in higher education, health care, libraries, K-12 schools, government bodies and other nonprofit groups.
Qwests services are offered to MiCTA/ATA members across the 50 states.
The contract lasts three years with an option of two additional one-year terms.
“MiCTA/ATA is one of the leading organizations for the government and education sector, so it’s extremely gratifying that we are continuing our long-standing relationship as one of the approved service providers,” says Tom Richards, executive vice president of the business markets group for Qwest. “This year we’ve expanded the list of services that we can provide MiCTA/ATA members and we’re encouraged by the strength of our relationship.”
MiCTA/ATA says Qwest offers its members the most competitive pricing as well as strong customer service.
