Level 3 Named Alltel’s 2007 Telecom Sourcing


Level 3 Communications today announced that it has been named Alltel Wireless’ 2007 Telecom Sourcing Supplier of the Year. Alltel presented Level 3 with this recognition during its Annual Vendor Forum.

“Level 3 provides services and network solutions that support our corporate vision and enable us to reinforce our commitment to delivering a quality wireless communications experience for our customers,” said Scott Searls, senior vice president of Alltel Wireless. “Level 3 has been a significant part of that success in 2007, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with Level 3 to provide the best in quality services for our customers.”

Level 3 was awarded this honor based on Alltel’s quarterly evaluation of all vendors. The evaluation criteria included quality, delivery, price, technology roadmap and relationship. Collaborative efforts between Alltel and Level 3 have enabled voice and data solutions for Alltel’s convergence network—delivering all services over a single IP-MPLS based network—and have supported the steady organic growth Alltel has seen in its voice business. Specifically, Level 3 provides Alltel with Level 3 Voice Services, Intercity Transport, Metro Transport Services, High Speed Internet Protocol (HSIP) and Collocation Services.
