Verizon Wireless Debuts First Consumer Broadband (Video on Demand) Service for Cell Phones & Fastest, Wide-Area Wireless Internet Service in San Francisco Bay Area
Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Mobile Phones Play TV Show clips & News, Sports, Movie Trailers, Music Videos, 3-D Games — and High-Speed Wireless Web surfing on Laptops.
The V CAST service enables consumers to download and view video content (up to 5 minutes) on-demand and play cutting-edge 3D games. Consumers can easily view current news, weather, sports and entertainment programming on their mobile phones. Choices include movie trailers, music videos, concert performances, short video programs specifically designed for mobile phones and other video content from providers such as CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX, ESPN, FOX Sports, MarketWatch, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and more.
This is the first wide-area wireless broadband network and services for the San Francisco Bay Area — one service for the consumer market and the other primarily for business customers.
V CAST, the nation’s first wireless broadband multimedia service for consumers, and BroadbandAccess, the fastest wide-area wireless Internet access service available in the nation, are available today. Both services run on the company’s high-speed wireless broadband network, which is now available from coast to coast, in 60 metropolitan areas.
