Verizon Wireless deploy 3G network in Washington DC and San Diego
Posted on 30-Sep-2003 07:48. | Tags Filed under: News.



Verizon Wireless introduced its service called BroadbandAccess. Touted as a broadband wireless data service, it's their 3G wide area 1xEVDO network. Beginning 1st October 2003, customers in Washington D.C. and San Diego can purchase BroadbandAccess.

Verizon Wireless promisses BroadbandAccess will have typical speeds of 300-500 kbps and capable of bursts up to 2 Mbps. The press release says that with this connection option a 1MByte email attachment is downloaded in less than 20 seconds. By comparison, the same size file on GPRS service takes almost seven minutes to download, or one and a half minutes to download the file using EDGE service.

BroadbandAccess service is available for a flat rate of US$79.99 a month. Verizon Wireless is offering its first BroadbandAccess device required for the service, the Verizon Wireless PC 5220 card, manufactured by Sierra Wireless.

Through the end of the year, Verizon Wireless customers can buy the Verizon Wireless PC 5220 card for US$149.99 after US$100 rebate. In the future, Verizon Wireless will offer additional BroadbandAccess devices, including additional cards, modem solutions for the office, and a wide range of the latest handheld mobile devices.
