Four municipalities in northwestern New Mexico are now getting Axcess Broadband service from Alltel Wireless that provides users with unlimited access to the Internet at speeds comparable to wired broadband connections such as cable modem or DSL.
The service, available in Farmington Shiprock, Aztec and Bloomfield, enables users to access advanced business 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. Axcess Broadband makes it easy to surf the Internet, access email and calendars and download large, graphic-rich files while on the go.
“Alltel Wireless is committed to meeting the growing data needs of our customers,” said Terri Larson, vice president of business solutions for Alltel Wireless in New Mexico and Colorado. “Axcess Broadband 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.”
Alltel is rapidly expanding its high-speed network across the country. In the past year, Alltel has introduced Axcess Broadband in metropolitan areas such as Phoenix, Tampa, Charlotte and Cleveland; in smaller cities such as Little Rock, Ark., Raleigh, N.C., and Savannah, Ga., and in towns such as Jonesboro, Ark., Dothan, Ala., and Casa Grande, Ariz.
Alltel plans to launch Axcess Broadband in additional markets across the country in 2006, giving it one of the largest EVDO footprints of any U.S. carrier.
