    Alltel’s Wireless Internet to provide high-speed data services; EVDO technology delivers speeds comparable to cable or DSL


    January 16, 2008

    BRISTOL, Tenn. - Continuing to expand its wireless data network for mobile professionals and consumers, Alltel Wireless has launched broadband Wireless Internet service in Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City and nearby communities. Wireless Internet uses next generation EVDO (evolution data optimized) technology that provides customers with unlimited wireless access to the Internet at speeds comparable to wired broadband connections such as cable modem or DSL.

    With Wireless Internet, it is easy to surf the Web, 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 the Tri-Cities area,” said Karen DelSignore, vice president of business solutions for Alltel Wireless. “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.”

    Nationally, Alltel has one of the largest EVDO footprints of any U.S. carrier, covering cities such as Cleveland, Charlotte and Tampa, as well as many smaller communities. In addition to the extensive coverage provided by its own network, Alltel’s roaming agreements give its customers with data-card equipped laptops Wireless Internet access in all of the nation’s major metropolitan areas, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

    Wireless Internet is available for $59.99 a month for unlimited use and does not require a voice plan in order to qualify. 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 broadband network, customers will need an EVDO-capable handset, such as the MOTOROKR™ Z6m, or a laptop PC data card available online and at Alltel retail stores in USB, PCMCIA Type II, and Express Card form factors.
