Spokane County Library District Selects Qwest for Network Services

Spokane County Library District, Washington, has selected Qwest Communications to upgrade its wide-area data network.

According to Qwest, its ethernet platform will deliver a portfolio of online resources to library users across the library district. With Qwest's ethernet services, eight of Spokane County's libraries are connected with speeds up to 20 megabits per second.

Priscilla Ice, IT manager for the Spokane County Library District, said: "Our goal is to provide uniform service to all areas of the county. With Qwest's network, anyone, in any part of the district, can access library resources with the speed and reliability once limited to a few."
