Verizon Wireless Expands EVDO in Bedford County, Pennsylvania

High-Speed Network Gives Verizon Wireless Customers Access to Fast Wireless Internet, Email, Full-Track Songs, Videos and More

BEDFORD, Pa. -- Verizon Wireless has expanded the national rollout of its high-speed wireless network to portions of Bedford County including the neighboring towns of Bedford, Breezewood and Everett. Additional coverage includes portions of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Interstate 99 and State Route 220.

Our high-speed wireless network gives our customers three key advantages in wireless communicationspeed, mobility and security, said Roger Tang, presidentOhio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. With these advantages, business customers and mobile professionals can increase productivity and see bottom-line business benefits. In addition, our V CAST services, such as V CAST Music with Rhapsody, help keep customers entertained while on the goon the same devices they carry with them every day.


The network expansion in Bedford County offers Verizon Wireless business customers a truly mobile office experience with BroadbandAccess, giving them access to their calendars, the Internet, email and critical business information residing behind their companies firewalls. BroadbandAccess was developed with a range of users in mind, and it enables large enterprises, small to medium-sized businesses and mobile professionals to conduct business anytime, anywhere in the BroadbandAccess coverage area via a secure, true high-speed data connection.

Customers in wireless broadband coverage areas can expect average download speeds of 600 kilobits per second (kbps) to 1.4 megabits per second and average upload speeds of 500 kbps to 800 kbps. That means they can download a 1 megabyte email attachmentthe equivalent of a small PowerPoint® presentation or a large PDF filein about eight seconds and upload the same-sized file in less than 13 seconds. To help customers stay connected, BroadbandAccess seamlessly switches to the companys NationalAccess service if they travel outside the BroadbandAccess coverage.

V CAST Music with Rhapsody

The companys wireless broadband network powers its V CAST Music with Rhapsody service, which combines Verizon Wireless world-class, over-the-air mobile music service with Rhapsodys leading desktop solution. V CAST with Rhapsody delivers unlimited monthly access to music on up to three Rhapsody-compatible mobile phones and players, and online on multiple PCs and Web browsers. With V CAST Music with Rhapsody, customers who purchase music over-the-air can download the master copy of the songs or albums to their PCs free of digital rights management (DRM) software that restricts how and where music can be played.


The companys V CAST service gives customers the ability to play cutting-edge 3D games and stream video clips straight to their handsets. V CAST offers content updated daily so customers can watch dozens of on-demand videos, including breaking news, weather updates, sports highlights and the hottest entertainment clips.

Network Technology and Investment
