Verizon Wireless Expands EVDO Rev-A to Fredericksburg, VA
High-Speed Network Gives Verizon Wireless Customers Access to Fast Wireless Internet, E-mail, Mobile Music, Videos, and More
LAUREL, Md., Nov. 9 -- Verizon Wireless customers in Fredericksburg, Va. can now access e-mail, everyday corporate data, the Internet and more at faster speeds, check out video on their phones, download music right over the air and play 3D games as Verizon Wireless rolls out its wireless high-speed broadband network to Fredericksburg. The company's wireless broadband network allows customers to access BroadbandAccess on their laptops, e-mail on their PDAs, and V CAST Video and Music on their wireless phones.
The new wireless broadband network coverage area extends locally throughout the Fredericksburg area, including the Rt. 95 corridor from Massaponax north to DC, and the Rt. 17 corridor from Corbin to Warrenton.
Based on CDMA 1x Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision (Rev.) A technology, the wireless broadband network provides Verizon Wireless customers with data uplink speeds significantly faster than the company's award-winning national EV-DO network.
"This expansion is part of our continuing focus on investing in our network reliability and providing innovative high-speed data services to our customers," said Tami Erwin, Verizon Wireless regional president. "With BroadbandAccess, mobile professionals and students can now take their desktop experience wherever they go in the coverage area, allowing them to wirelessly access their Outlook® calendars, the Internet, e-mail and other critical information."
The company's flagship business data service, BroadbandAccess, provides average download speeds of 600 kilobits per second (kbps) to 1.4 megabits and average upload speeds of 500-800 kbps, which means customers can download a 1 Megabyte e-mail attachment -- the equivalent of a small PowerPoint® presentation or a large PDF file -- in about eight seconds and upload the same-sized file in less than 13 seconds. Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service allows customers to download files approximately 10 times faster than customers of other wireless service providers that use different broadly deployed network technologies.
Verizon Wireless offers several BroadbandAccess devices for the company's wireless broadband network, including the AirCard 595U and USB720 wireless modems, the V740 ExpressCard, AirCard 595 and PC5750 PC Cards from Verizon Wireless. All of the devices are fully compatible with the company's wireless broadband network and its NationalAccess network (based on CDMA 1xRTT technology), giving customers the ability to remain connected if they travel outside of the wireless broadband coverage area.
V CAST: Video and Music
The company's high-speed network also enables its V CAST multimedia services, offering customers the ability to download full song tracks, play cutting-edge 3D games and stream video clips straight to their phones. With content updated daily, customers can watch dozens of on-demand videos, including breaking news, weather, sports highlights, and the hottest entertainment clips.
With V CAST Music, Verizon Wireless has built a massive full-song mobile music store that contains more than 2.1 million songs from well-known and independent artists that customers can download over-the-air, right onto their V CAST Music-enabled phones.
