    Qwest to Become CenturyLink

    The Qwest Center Omaha has had a nice run.
    But change is coming.
    By the end of August, the facility will don the name of CenturyLink, the Monroe, La.-based telecommunications company that is expected to close its $22 billion mergerdeal with Qwest Communications on April 1.
    CenturyLink's name and green sunburst logo will replace everything — from trash cans and hand dryers, to uniforms and the giant outdoor signage — that currently carries the name “Qwest” and its “Q” emblem.
    CenturyLink will pay for the expansive branding makeover, bringing a new flavor to Omaha's skyline and name recognition to the company — something its leaders covet, since the company is mostly unknown to many Nebraskans who soon will be its customers.
    All Qwest properties — including Qwest Field in Seattle, home to the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks and Major League Soccer's Seattle Saunders, and Qwest Arena in Boise, Idaho — will transition to the CenturyLink name and brand, said Danny Pate, who will serve as vice president and general manager for Nebraska operations.
    Additionally, the company will swap out the Qwest signage atop the Omaha World-Herald building at 1314 Douglas St., which the Omaha World-Herald Co. purchased in 2006.
    “All Qwest properties will adopt the CenturyLink name,” Pate said in a statement.

    Well ****. Century Link Center doesn't roll off the tongue nearly as easily.

    Weird. Seems like Qwest is a better name for the combined company.

    No kidding. The Qwest center can no longer be referred to as "The Q"
    "The Century" or "The C" just don't have the same vibe.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Qwest to Become CenturyLink

    Is century Link larger or just in better shape, better markets, etc? The name is worse IMO.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Depends. The choice is between a well-known bad company or an up-and-comer nobody has heard of.
