    Alltel Extends EVDO Wireless Broadband to Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head and Several Inland South Carolina Communities

    Alltel's Axcess Broadband to Provide High-Speed Wireless Data Services; EVDO Technology Delivers Speeds Comparable to Cable or DSL

    CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Continuing to expand its wireless data network for mobile professionals and consumers, Alltel Wireless has extended Axcess Broadband service in South Carolina to Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Beaufort and several inland communities. This next generation EVDO (evolution data optimized) technology provides customers with unlimited wireless access to the Internet at speeds comparable to wired broadband connections such as cable modem or DSL.

    Axcess Broadband makes it easy to surf the Internet, access e-mail and calendars and download large, graphic-rich files while on the go. Using the service, customers can access advanced business, news and entertainment applications from their laptops, smartphones or handsets at average speeds of 400 to 700 Kbps with maximum speeds of up to 2.4 Mbps.

    "Alltel Wireless is committed to meeting the growing data needs of our customers in South Carolina," said Ron Senchak, vice president of business solutions for Alltel Wireless in South Carolina. "Axcess Broadband wireless Internet service delivers an unmatched wireless broadband experience that will keep both traveling business professionals and casual users connected with the fastest and most reliable data services."

    Late last year, Alltel introduced Axcess Broadband in Columbia, Florence and surrounding communities, including West Columbia, Dentsville and Cayce. In North Carolina, the service is available in and around Charlotte, Wilmington and Raleigh.

    Axcess Broadband is available for $59.99 a month for unlimited use with qualifying voice plans. In addition to supporting a wide range of productivity enhancing business applications, it enables Alltel's Axcess TV, with more than 25 channels, and XM radio, with 20 of the best satellite radio music channels. To experience the high-speed network, customers will need an EVDO-capable handset, such as the MOTOKRZR K1m, or a laptop PC data card, such as the Franklin CDU550.

    For more information on Axcess devices, visit an Alltel Wireless retail store or log on to www.alltel.com.

    Alltel is owner and operator of the nation's largest wireless network and has nearly 12 million wireless customers.
