Imagine being on the train, in the car, in the subway, bus or at a client’s place and accessing the Internet at speeds from 300 – 500kbps without WiFi.
While WiFi is all well and good and is increasing in use, having coverage across the US, where WiFi might not be is a good extra level of security for those who MUST have their notebooks connected to the ‘net on demand.
Verizon is expanindg its wireless broadbrand service throughout a growing number of metropolitan areas.
AT&T and Sprint have high speed wireless service also.
Verizon’s BroadbandAccess is available for $79.99 monthly access for unlimited use with a one-year customer agreement. Verizon Wireless is offering a promotional saving on its first BroadbandAccess device, the Verizon Wireless PC 5220 card, which also provides access to the company’s NationalAccess data network. Through December 31, 2004, Verizon Wireless customers can buy the Verizon Wireless PC 5220 card for $99.99 with a two-year customer agreement or $149.99 with a one-year customer agreement after $150 rebate.
BroadbandAccess will be available to business and individual customers in additional U.S. metropolitan areas later this year and through 2005. Using laptops equipped with BroadbandAccess PC 5220 cards, business customers can use the high-speed service outside the office, from any location within the BroadbandAccess coverage area, as an extension of their corporate local area network (LAN) or intranet. Customers can access e-mail, intranets and the Internet and download files residing behind corporate firewalls (a small PowerPoint presentation or large PDF file in less than 30 seconds).
