Qwest said its residential customers will be able to choose Verizon Wireless service on its own, or as part of a “bundle” of home phone, Internet, video and wireless services.

Terms of the deal with Verizon Wireless, a joint venture of Verizon Communications Inc and Vodafone Group Plc, were not disclosed.

Qwest said in February it was unhappy with its current arrangement to resell Sprint Nextel Corp services.
