Qwest and AOL Time Warner Announce DSL Agreement, More

AOL Time Warner to Use Qwest's High-Speed Access, Network Services; Advertising Agreement Also Reached (July 26, 2001)
Qwest Communications International Inc. and AOL Time Warner today announced multi-year agreements under which Qwest will be a primary provider of high-speed access, dial-up access and other network services to AOL Time Warner. Qwest will also purchase advertising across AOL Time Warner's portfolio of online, print and television outlets.

AOL Time Warner will use Qwest's broadband network to deliver its online services to millions of consumers. America Online has agreed to purchase services including DSL lines, network transport, as well as other network services in the United States.

In a separate agreement, Qwest Communications, through KPNQwest, a pan-European IP data communications and hosting company, will provide America Online with macro-capacity bandwidth for delivering content and multimedia services to its European customers.

In addition, Qwest will advertise with AOL Time Warner's vast combination of media brands, including print advertising in publications such as FORTUNE and TIME magazines; television advertising on Turner Broadcasting properties; and online promotions through several America Online brands, to enhance Qwest's efforts to build brand awareness as a global communications services provider.

The wholesale network and DSL agreements build on a January 1999 relationship between Qwest and America Online in which Qwest delivered to AOL high-speed connectivity, private line and co-location services, as well as additional bandwidth to allow AOL to serve more customers.
