Not Over Until It's Over

MCI bought by Verizon? Not so fast. Seems Qwest's not done.

:::::::: Qwest Communications International Inc. said yesterday it plans to make a revised bid for MCI Inc. in an attempt to scuttle Verizon Communications Inc.'s deal to buy the Ashburn-based communications company.

In a letter to MCI's chairman, Qwest chief executive Richard C. Notebaert appealed to MCI's board of directors to reconsider its vote to merge with Verizon.
