Missed Connections

Phoenix, AZ: (Apr-25-08) Qwest Communications International Inc. brought charges against Cox Communications Inc., over a dispute that centered on unauthorized use of telephone connections in apartment complexes. Officials on both sides of the dispute stated that the parties had reached a settlement agreement and resolved the issues over the alleged unauthorized telephone use. Under the terms of agreement, Cox Communications Inc. agreed to pay $2.2 million to Qwest Communications International Inc. Court papers reveal that the Arizona Corporation Commission also announced a potential fine range of between $80,000 and $4 million for Cox's actions in the case.

Qwest officials stated that the amount was based in part on what Cox would have paid under previous agreements for supplying its services via Qwest's lines. Details of the settlement were only recently revealed as Cox representatives had asked that they not be disclosed. The details were announced by Corporation Commissioner Kris Mayes in a hearing before ACC Administrative Law Judge Dwight Nodes.
