Verizon Wireless and Vodafone co-operate on laptop internet access via GPRS
Verizon Wireless Vodafone (the world's largest mobile carrier) announced their intention to develop a dual branded 'Verizon Vodafone' lap top data card service for business customers working and travelling between the US and Europe.

The data card will be based on Vodafone's data card service Vodafone Mobile Connect Card, reviewed here on Geekzone a few months ago.

Verizon Wireless will develop and market the product under licence from Vodafone. The service will enable Verizon Wireless and Vodafone business customers to seamlessly access their e-mail, the Internet and corporate applications on their laptops within Vodafone's territories and Verizon Wireless' network in the US, with customers experiencing their same service environment when travelling abroad.

To support the service, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone intend to co-operate on data card hardware, service inter-connectivity, roaming and inter-operator tariffing.

"As Verizon Wireless and Vodafone work toward a seamless wireless data experience for business people on both sides of the Atlantic, our customers will look forward to the high-quality services and products that we've become known for in the wireless marketplace," said Denny Strigl, President and CEO of Verizon Wireless.

"Today's announcement demonstrates the potential of the Verizon Wireless and Vodafone partnership to lead the global mobile market in delivering genuine customer value. By combining our product and marketing knowledge with Verizon Wireless' excellent quality CDMA 1xRTT data Express Network and Vodafone's GPRS networks, our partnership will deliver mobile e-mail access, the Web and corporate applications, all key business services. This will allow Verizon Wireless and Vodafone customers to work effectively whilst travelling in the US and Europe," said Julian Horn Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Vodafone.
