IBM and Qwest Focused on e-commerce.

Designed to assist businesses in getting online and to make available more sophisticated services backed by the high end IBM Web hosting and e-commerce skills combined with the broadband capacity of Qwest's network.

A range of services will be offered from those satisfying small business needs to get online to managing complex systems for larger users.

The contract is viewed as being worth $5 billion awarded to one another over seven years and will be viewed in a negative light by AT&T which might have expected its pre-existing relationships with IBM would have suggested that the partnership be with them.

The proposal envisions Qwest and IBM collaborating to build and run "cyber-centers" around the country that will be bases for e-commerce.
