Verizon Wireless Broadband

An exerpted news release from Verizon on its recent and coming broadband wireless services in New Mexico cities.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/
Customers in Gallup and Farmington can now access the latest high-speed business and entertainment services on their wireless phones, laptop computers and other wireless devices thanks to Verizon Wireless.

The new capabilities come with the expansion of the company's Evolution- Data Optimized (EVDO) network in Gallup and Farmington, enabling both its BroadbandAccess and V CAST services. Customers in these communities now have access to the same high-speed Verizon Wireless services that have been available in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

The company will launch the same service in Las Cruces and Alamogordo by year-end.
"Verizon Wireless is committed to expanding our high-speed data network across the nation and in New Mexico," said Tony Heyman, regional president, Verizon Wireless.
"Now, more customers throughout the state have access to the true mobility of wireless data."

BroadbandAccess provides on-the-go professionals with full, mobile access to their corporate information as if they were attached to the information via a high-speed wired connection. Users can conduct business anytime, anywhere in the BroadbandAccess coverage area via a secure, true high-speed data connection.

With average access speeds of 400-700 kilobits per second (kbps), users can download a 1 Megabyte e-mail attachment -- the equivalent of a small PowerPoint(R) presentation or a large PDF file -- in about 20 seconds.   Connecting to BroadbandAccess is easy, using a PC card that slides directly into most laptop computers, through an integrated option on select notebook computers or by connecting a laptop to a BroadbandAccess-capable PDA or phone.

V CAST, the nation's first wireless broadband multimedia service for consumers, offers the most comprehensive selection available of music, videos and 3D games on demand. Users can stream video clips (up to five minutes long) of the hottest entertainment, music videos, movie trailers, sports highlights, news and breaking weather directly to their Verizon Wireless V CAST-capable phone.

With V CAST Music, customers can browse and download songs from the V CAST Music
library of 1.5 million songs directly onto their V CAST Music-enabled phone or Windows(R)
XP-enabled PC. They can also transfer music from their PC to their V CAST Music-enabled
phone and take their tunes with them without a second device.

With the launch, Verizon Wireless' current EV-DO coverage in New Mexico now includes the communities of Gallup and Farmington, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, Cedar Crest, Edgewood and Nambe.

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $150 million in New Mexico and El Paso, Texas in the past five years -- part of its $35 billion nationwide network investment over the last seven years -- to ensure network reliability and expanded coverage, capacity and capabilities.
