For anyone interested in changing their telephone service to Qwest, here is the phone number to call:
It took me less than 10 minutes to make the change from MCI to Qwest. After the transaction was complete, I said I wanted to thank Qwest for not complying with the NSA’s request to turn over their customer’s phone records. The representative I was speaking to said I wouldn’t believe the number of calls they’d gotten over the last few days from new customers– for the same reason.
According to CBS news, former Qwest Communications CEO Joseph Nacchio, who refused to turn over the records to the NSA, has been accused by the US government of insider trading and illegally selling company stock.
