Verizon Wireless to invest US$1 billion in new CDMA 3G network
Verizon Wireless will begin immediately to expand its BroadbandAccess service nationally. Powered by CDMA2000 1xEVDO (Evolution-Data Optimized) 3G, the service will provide users with average user speeds of 300-500kbps. BroadbandAccess is expected to be available in many major U.S. cities this summer.

Since October 2003, BroadbandAccess has been deployed in Washington D.C. with Lucent Technologies, and in San Diego with Nortel Networks. This high-speed data network will be available to business and individual customers beginning in the summer of 2004 throughout significant portions of the Verizon Wireless national network, with additional markets phased in through 2005. Because it is backward compatible-a distinct advantage to using CDMA technology-customers who travel outside a BroadbandAccess area with an EV-DO device will seamlessly switch to Verizon Wireless' existing NationalAccess network, based on 1xRTT technology. In addition to its ongoing annual capital investment program to build network capacity and coverage, the company expects to invest US$1 billion over the next two years to deploy its EV-DO technology nationally.

BroadbandAccess service is priced at a flat rate of US$79.99 monthly access with a one-year contract. Verizon Wireless is offering its first BroadbandAccess device, the Verizon Wireless PC 5220 card, which also provides access to the NationalAccess national data network.
