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


    BISMARCK, N.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Continuing to expand its wireless data network for mobile professionals and consumers, Alltel Wireless has launched broadband Wireless Internet service in North Dakota, providing coverage to Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and many other 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.

    Alltel’s Wireless Internet service also is available in Minot, Dickinson, Jamestown, Medora and Valley City in North Dakota. In Minnesota, the service is now available in Thief River Falls, Moorhead and Crookston.

    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 across North Dakota,” said Jay Ortman, vice president of business solutions for Alltel Wireless in North Dakota. “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.

    For more information on Wireless Internet, consumers can visit an Alltel Wireless retail store or log on to Alltel.com - Official site. Business customers can visit Alltel Mobile Software Solutions : Alltel Mobile Software Solutions Home.

    Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, providing coverage across the country, has more than 12 million wireless customers.

    You must be one heck of an apple fan boy to want an iphone so badly that you would put up with that. :lmao: I'm just messing with you bud, I love Macs. I wish I could afford a Mac book pro (or a Mac pro tower), and I have to admit that the iphone is a beautiful piece of hardware. You will just have to decide what is more important, cool hardware or the quality of the network it is running on. Back on topic though, Like I said in that first post, Alltel is making me a very happy person with all the EVDO they are adding in this region since my Sprint data card can roam on their network. I was really bummed when I read that Verizon covered that whole Grand Forks area with EVDO, since I had just gone with Sprint for my data service. I hope to see reports soon about Alltel adding EVDO to Southern and south western MN, that would really help in my travels.
