Wireless Data Services Achieves Outstanding Status in Networking

BEDMINSTER, NJ � Today, CMP Media LLC�s Network Computing announced that Verizon Wireless has been awarded Best Business Data Service for its BroadbandAccess service in the publication�s 2005 Well-Connected Awards, beating out business data services of two other major wireless carriers. Verizon Wireless, the nation�s leading wireless service provider, was selected for the exceptional performance of its wireless data services for enterprise customers. The Well-Connected Awards honor the year�s outstanding technology products and services and are selected by technology editors from products that have been tested and evaluated in CMP Media LLC�s Network Computing labs during the past year.

Senior technology editor, Dave Molta, said in an October 14, 2004 Network Computing article which sized up the players in the marketplace that �Verizon [Wireless] can lay legitimate claim to best broadband performance, in the markets where EV-DO is available.�

Developed with a range of users in mind, Verizon Wireless� BroadbandAccess operates on the company�s Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network, giving customer a fast, convenient way to conduct business anytime, anywhere. Faster than any competing wide-area wireless technology, and with typical speeds of 400-700 kbps, BroadbandAccess customers can download a 1 Megabyte email attachment (for example, a small PowerPoint presentation or a large PDF file), or receive three digital pictures (each 400 x 600 pixels) in less than 20 seconds. Because it is backward compatible�a distinct advantage to using CDMA technology�customers who travel outside a BroadbandAccess coverage area with an EV-DO device will seamlessly switch to Verizon Wireless� existing NationalAccess network, based on 1xRTT technology.

�The Well-Connected Awards are the only industry awards given by technologists based on real-world product testing and evaluation. These awards take the pulse of the technology industry and reflect the best of what IT has to offer,� said Fritz Nelson, vice president and group publisher of the Network Computing Enterprise Architecture Group.

�This is an important distinction from any other award program - the products selected in the Well-Connected Awards are unique because they have been graded with the same criteria IT professionals use to make purchasing decisions- truly the most outstanding products and services available.�

�Verizon Wireless is honored with this award from Network Computing, as it is our constant goal to provide our customers with the best wireless network and best wireless experience,� said John Stratton, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. �Our BroadbandAccess service and the EV-DO network it runs on are at the forefront of meeting the technology needs of today�s business customers. The real-world usage by our business customers confirms what Network Computing has also discovered � BroadbandAccess is an exceptional broadband wireless experience, providing customers with explosively fast Internet and email access that makes them more productive.�

The 2005 Well-Connected Awards winners are profiled in CMP Media LLC�s Network Computing�s April 28, 2005 issue. Winners and finalists were honored at a special awards ceremony on May 3, 2005 at the Network+Interop show in Las Vegas.
