Verizon Wireless’s high-speed third-generation wireless broadband network has been enhanced with EVDO Rev. A technology. This enhancement allows customers, who use the company’s business data service, BroadbandAccess, to interact with web-based applications, download music over the air, access to email, everyday corporate data, the internet, and more at speeds that are eight to nine times faster than before.
Charles Hand, president of the Verizon Wireless’s New York metro region, said: Our New Jersey customers are among the most demanding and tech savvy in the nation and Verizon Wireless continues to efficiently invest in network enhancements to deliver the reliable and innovative services customers want. Better yet, Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier with a 30-day network test drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn’t satisfied and switches to another carrier.
