Axcess Broadband makes it easy to surf the Internet, access email and calendars and download large, graphic-rich files while on the go.

Alltel is rapidly expanding its high-speed network across the country.

Alltel plans to launch Axcess Broadband in additional markets across the country, giving it one of the largest EVDO footprints of any U.S. carrier.
