A quote from Saturday's Daily Herald seems to indicate that this is the case:
"Broadweave has a CLEC or Competitive Local Exchange Carrier relationship with Qwest, and will therefore not be a service provider on Qwest's network," [Broadweave CEO Steve Christensen] said.
This seems fishy on a few levels. About 85-90% of Veracity's customer base exists outside of iProvo and UTOPIA. This is primarily in selling voice and data services over Qwest's network, the bread and butter of the company's revenues. It doesn't make sense to shed a significant portion of Veracity's customer base as part of this acquisition, yet that seems to be exactly what Broadweave intends to do.
The statement on being a CLEC also doesn't seem to make sense. Veracity has been a CLEC for a very long time using Qwest's network. How is it that Broadweave being a CLEC would preclude it from using Qwest's network? After all, MSTAR, Veracity and XMission have used Qwest's infrastructure while participating on iProvo or UTOPIA.
This also raises a lot of concerns with Veracity's employee base. Their experience is primarily with business clients, yet we're seeing that Broadweave will dump most of those clients in favor of a largely residential mix. It remains to be seen if they can successfully pull off this transition, but I highly doubt it.
