Until 30 April 2004, AT&T Wireless customers who sign up for a qualified two-year unlimited data plan will receive a free Sony Ericsson GC82 EDGE PC Card.
"We are very impressed with the fast speed of the EDGE service," noted Chris Darrell, vice president of information systems and services at GENEX Services, a national health care management company. "EDGE provided our field sales teams quick and convenient access to email and extremely fast access to corporate documents, such as RFPs, graphic presentations, and spreadsheets - all critical information when trying to close a deal or be responsive to customer requests. We expect our sales teams nationally to be able to use their time even more productively by taking advantage of EDGE throughout our company."
AT&T Wireless EDGE service is available today to nearly 220 million people living and working in 6,500 cities and towns, and in areas along some 30,000 miles of interstate highways. According to AT&T Wireless, when using the EDGE wireless modem card, mobile workers can access the Internet and corporate intranet sites, or download e-mail with attachments with text, graphics or spreadsheets, at speeds averaging 100-130Kbps and bursts up to 200Kbps.
