DENVER, July 25, 2006 - Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q) today launched an enhanced Web site to help make moving to a new home as easy as possible for customers. The new site lets customers order their communications and entertainment products - as well as set up utilities - in one simple online session.
By visiting the Web site at www.qwest.com/movers and placing an order with Qwest, movers can select the "Connect my Utilities" banner and transfer or order new electric, gas, water and other services - all in one place - based on availability in their area.
Building on Qwest's commitment to make it easy and convenient for customers to stay connected with the people and things important to them, the Web site also offers tools and resources to make moving as simple as possible. The site features a move planner, city profiles and a free moving kit, which includes change-of-address service, a helpful pre-move checklist and a free 30-minute pre-paid Qwest calling card.
Movers who place orders on the enhanced Qwest site will also receive a free one-year membership in SaversGuide(r), an online discount and savings site powered by Entertainment(c). This membership provides information and access to valuable coupons redeemable at restaurants, dry cleaners and attraction venues in a mover's new neighborhood.
"Moving can be an incredibly stressful time. At Qwest, we want to make the experience as simple and convenient for customers as possible," said Stephanie Copeland, vice president of product marketing at Qwest. "By enhancing our one-stop online moving shop, Qwest hopes to ensure seamless access to the products that help keep customers connected, as well as essential utility services."
At the Web site, movers can choose Qwest products at additional cost-savings when they bundle their Internet, TV and digital voice (local and long distance) services, as well as order newspaper subscriptions and gas, electric and water utilities. The inclusion of a Qwest Wireless package in the bundle further increases customer savings. Qwest was the first communications provider in its 14-state local service region to launch a four product bundle in May 2005.
