Netscape, Qwest Team to Build Netscape Contact

Netscape Communications Corp. and Qwest Communications Int’l Inc. (Denver, www.qwest.com) announced a three-year alliance to offer customers access to a suite of communications services, available through Netscape’s Netcenter portal site.

Netscape will create a single service called Netscape Contact, where customers can manage telephone and Internet communications. As part of the service, long distance telephone calls, conference calls, faxing, Internet access, and combined voice and e-mail in a single inbox will be available from Netscape.

To handle the increased bandwidth Netscape expects to come from Contact, Netscape will use Qwest’s nationwide Macro Capacity Fibre Network to enhance the performance and bandwidth of its Netcenter site by directly connecting to the Qwest network at speeds up to 622 Mbps.

Also part of the agreement, Qwest’s commercial sales division will be able to offer Netscape software applications to all its business customers.

The companies claim that Netscape Contact will be up and running by the end of September. – Thomas Sullivan, Staff Reporter/Reviews Editor
