Premier science and technology magazine Popular Science has chosen Verizon Wireless' Express NetworkSM technology as one of the world's most outstanding breakthrough products and best electronic innovations in its 15th annual "Best of What's New" issue. Verizon Wireless' Express Network was the nation's first advanced high-speed wireless data network with average speeds similar to or greater than home PC dial-up connections and is now available in more than 800 U.S. cities. This award marks the third such award for the Express Network since its launch in January 2002.

"Since its launch, our Express Network has proven to be an innovative technology that is perfect for both small business and enterprise by extending office boundaries so mobile professionals are accessible to clients and the office from virtually anywhere," said Cindy Patterson, vice president of enterprise data sales for Verizon Wireless. "With the Express Network your office can be almost anywhere-home, the airport, a coffee shop-once again Verizon Wireless is first in the nation to bring customers the tools to be more efficient and progressive."

Thousands of new technologies were reviewed by Popular Science over the past year, but only the 100 best were included in the "Best of What's New" issue. The Express Network averages speeds of up to 40-60 kilobits per second (kbps) and is capable of data transmission speeds bursting up to 144 kbps.
