innovation for connected people

The ThunderBolt™ by HTC is Verizon's first 4G LTE smartphone. Verizon launched the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the U.S., creating a new growth platform for wireless data services.

ur customers' lives revolve around daily interactions with personal computers, mobile phones, laptops, tablets and a host of other digital devices connected to the global Internet. Using advanced broadband services, individuals can shape their communication and entertainment needs to fit today's “borderless” lifestyle, so they can interact with information and content anywhere, at any time, across a multitude of devices connected to Verizon's high-IQ networks.

Teens and young adults, who have never known a world without mobile connectivity, have built complex social networks centered on a continuous flow of personal digital information. Their desire for fast access to information and entertainment is driving growth of advanced mobile devices across the entire wireless market. But to make the most of these smart devices, innovative social networks must run on innovative broadband networks.

To keep customers connected at all times, Verizon is aligning its wireless, fiber and global IP networks and its vast data center infrastructure – along with all the devices, applications and interactive content being developed – to deliver experiences more powerful than anything we've seen before.

For example, our new FiOS FlexView video service is an early glimpse at what this “content anywhere” world will look like. FlexView gives users a streaming video experience at their fingertips via their TVs, PCs, laptops, tablets or smartphones. They can choose from more than 2,000 FiOS on-demand titles, start watching a movie on their home TV and then continue watching on another device.

To provide dependable connectivity to these highly mobile individuals, Verizon has the largest, most reliable 3G wireless voice and data network in the U.S. We're the nation's largest provider of innovative Android products, including our successful Droid lineup of smartphones. We've also added Apple's popular iPhone 4 and iPad to our comprehensive wireless portfolio.

As a result of our award-winning service, products and networks, we have the highest-quality, most loyal customer base in the wireless industry. To continue providing the best experience to our customers, Verizon is investing in the next phase of wireless broadband growth with the launch of 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology. This new service will provide customers with a faster 4G experience and will help create new data-driven growth services.
