Verizon Wireless expands high-speed wireless broadband network from Santa Rosa to Eureka

LAKE COUNTY – Verizon Wireless customers around the Highway 101 corridor from Santa Rosa to Eureka can now get e-mail, real-time corporate data, access to the Internet, and much more at faster speeds.


Coverage on the nation's most reliable wireless high-speed broadband network now extends to:


  • Lake County including Clearlake, Lakeport and Middletown.

  • Mendocino County including Ukiah, Willits, Laytonville, Fort Bragg and Hopland.

  • Sonoma County North of Healdsburg including Geyserville, Cloverdale and Sea Ranch.


In addition to these areas, BroadbandAccess coverage in Northern California includes the following counties: Alameda, Butte, Calaveras, Contra Costa, Del Norte, El Dorado, Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Kern, Kings, Lake, Lassen, Madera, Marin, Merced, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Benito, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Tulare, Yolo and Yuba.


Based on CDMA 1x Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A (Rev. A) technology, the expanded wireless broadband network provides Verizon Wireless customers with data uplink speeds significantly faster than the company's award-winning national EV-DO network, which the company first launched in Northern California in June 2006.


"Our broadband network expansion has something for everyone on-the-go," said Rich Garwood, regional president of Verizon Wireless. "BroadbandAccess lets our business customers experience a truly untethered mobile office experience with remote access to corporate data on their laptops and e-mail on their PDAs. With V CAST, consumers can enjoy a comprehensive selection of downloadable music, high-quality videos and exciting 3D games."


BroadbandAccess: The wireless data solution


The company's flagship business data service, BroadbandAccess, provides average download speeds of 600 kilobits per second (kbps) to 1.4 megabits and average upload speeds of 500-800 kbps. This means customers with Rev. A-compatible devices can download a 1 Megabyte e-mail attachment the equivalent of a small PowerPoint presentation or a large PDF file in about eight seconds and upload the same-sized file in less than 13 seconds.


Verizon Wireless offers several BroadbandAccess devices for the company's wireless broadband network. These devices are fully compatible with the company's NationalAccess network (based on CDMA 1xRTT technology), giving customers the ability to remain connected if they travel outside of the wireless broadband coverage area.


V CAST: Video, Music, 3D games


The company's high-speed network also enables its V CAST multimedia services, offering customers the ability to download full-song tracks, play cutting-edge 3D games and stream video clips on breaking news, sports and entertainment straight to their phones. Content is updated daily.


Coverage


Verizon Wireless was the first national wireless provider to commercially launch a high-speed wireless broadband network in the United States. Today, its entire nationwide wireless broadband network has been enhanced to Rev. A technology.
