Tom Richards, executive vice president at Qwest Business Markets Group, noted that Qwest’s Contact Center Solutions help attract a growing number of consumers who prefer to manage their own accounts and make it easy to do business with providers like Cirro Energy.
 
Qwest Communications has also announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.08 per share. The quarterly dividend is payable on May 30, 2008, to all stockholders of record at the close of business on May 9, 2008.
