CenturyLink Gets GSA VoIP Contract

CenturyLink has snagged a potential $6 million-plus contract to provide Voice over Internet Protocol services to the General Services Administration.

The contract is actually for $1.3 million for the first year, with four, one-year options.

CenturyLink is rising in the ranks of government IT contractors--currently 34 on Washington Technology’s latest list of the top 100, according to CenturyLink.

In December, the telecom and broadband provider secured an $11.4 million contract (three years at $3.8 million per year) to provide VoIP service to the state offices of U.S. senators.

The contract could actually total $26 million if the government picks up the four, one-year options, for that contract.
