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.
