Verizon Wireless Further Expands Voice And Wireless EVDO Rev-A Broadband Service Across New Hampshire


Network Enhancements Give More New Hampshire Customers Access to Fast Wireless Internet, E-mail, Mobile Music, and Videos

WILMINGTON, Mass., Feb. 5 -- Verizon Wireless today announced the expansion of wireless broadband service across several New Hampshire counties. The recent cell site enhancements and activations also brought new voice service to Cheshire County. Now more Verizon Wireless customers in the Granite State can access e-mail and the Internet on their laptops and PDAs, make calls and download video and music to their wireless phones.

Verizon Wireless' high-speed wireless data network is newly available within the following communities:

     -- Carroll County: Moultonborough
-- Cheshire County: Chesterfield*, Keene*, Spofford*, Surry*, and
-- Grafton County: Bethlehem, Campton, Lebanon, Littleton, Plymouth,
Sugar Hill, Woodstock, and Dartmouth College
-- Sullivan County: Charlestown, Claremont, Grantham, and Plainfield

* Indicates the activation of both voice and high-speed data coverage

"Our product lineup is stocked with best-in-class multimedia phones, all running on the nation's most reliable wireless network," said Ken Dixon, president of Verizon Wireless' New England region. "This latest network investment provides more New Hampshire residents and visitors the ability to surf our high-speed wireless network, send and receive e-mail and take their desktop experience with them on-the-go."

Verizon Wireless' high-speed wireless service, which powers its BroadbandAccess Internet and V CAST multimedia applications, is based on the company's Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A network technology.


The company's flagship 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.

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 2.5 million songs from well-known and independent artists that customers can download over-the-air, right onto their V CAST Music-enabled phones.

Since 2000 Verizon Wireless has invested more than $2 billion to enhance wireless capacity and coverage throughout the six states of New England. Nationally the company invests more than $1 billion every 90 days to stay ahead of the growing demand for Verizon Wireless voice and data services. The company's ongoing network investment now totals more than $40 billion nationally over the past eight years.
