Qwest announced a new holiday promotion for DSL which lowers their entry level tier to $14.99/month (from $39.99/month) for up to 1.5 Mbps. Their intermediate tier, or Qwest Platinum, pricing was lowered to $24.99/month (from $49.99/month) for up to 7 Mbps. Both offers are for one year of service. Qwest is also enticing existing customers with two months of free service if they agree to a two year commitment.
Qwest is following other telcos down the DSL value path, with high profile price promotions to try to stem slowing DSL growth. Verizon recently introduced a $9.99/month DSL plan. Will it be enough to reverse the slowing DSL growth trend?
