Business Travelers Can Stay Connected, One Session At A Time

BEDMINSTER, NJ — Verizon Wireless today announced the availability of BroadbandAccess pay-as-you-go pricing on the recently announced Dell LatitudeTM D620 and Latitude D820 notebooks with embedded Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) capabilities. Customers sign up for the $15 per 24-hour session service directly from the notebook.

"Session pricing is a very easy way for customers to try Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess before they sign up for monthly service," said Claude Mitchell, Verizon Wireless director — enterprise marketing. "There is no need for customers to interrupt their work to visit a store or call customer service; they click on the icon, follow the prompts and they're set up. This is especially convenient for the traveler who may be in New York in the morning and in Washington, D.C. in the evening. They can log on as much as they need to within that same 24-hour period."

BroadbandAccess gives customers high-speed access to e-mail, corporate data and the Internet from their laptop anywhere within the BroadbandAccess coverage area. Customers who travel outside a BroadbandAccess coverage area will seamlessly switch to Verizon Wireless' 1xRTT NationalAccess network to remain connected while on the road. There is never a need to seek out public Wi-Fi hotspots.

BroadbandAccess Session Pricing is available on the following mobile PCs:


  • Dell Latitude D620 and Latitude D820, Dell Precision M65

  • Lenovo Thinkpad Z60, T60 and X60 Notebooks

  • HP Compaq nc6140 and nc6320 Notebook PCs

Existing Verizon Wireless customers who have a voice plan of $39.99 monthly access or higher may use the activation icon on the Notebook to sign up for monthly BroadbandAccess service for $59.99 monthly access. Customers who do not have a Verizon Wireless voice plan may also sign up for monthly BroadbandAccess service directly from the activation icon for $79.99 monthly access.
