    Sprint/Qwest Deal

    New to this stock but this looks like good news for OPWV also:


    As part of the agreement, Qwest and Sprint will jointly work on a plan to transition customers to the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. By next year, the companies expect most of Qwest's existing wireless customers -- as well as all new Qwest customers -- to participate in the transition.

    With this agreement, Sprint will gain a new sales channel for our PCS Vision services, and Qwest can offer its customers access to our PCS network, the most complete all-digital wireless network in the nation.

    • Excellent news! From the press release

      "Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q - News) is a leading provider of voice, video and data services to more than 25 million customers."
      The bottomline is that PCS Vision will now be marketed to 25 million new customers with an already existing relationship to Qwest. Openwave benefits from every single new PCS Vision subscriber! PCS Vision now has 2.1 million subscribers and even a 10% uptake of PCS Vision from Qwest's existing clients (with the holiday season coming this is almost a guarantee and may be a conservative figure) will provide an additional 2.5 million new PCS Vision subscribers. More than a double from current PCS Vision subscriber levels! Also, note that Qwest has an existing business customer base to which it will be marketing PCS Vision. Zoweeeeeeeeee!!!
