Verizon Plans Fast Internet for Cellphones

Verizon Plans Fast Internet for Cellphones "Verizon Wireless said yesterday that it would deploy an advanced data network that will allow people to use the Internet at high speed on mobile phones and other devices, including laptop computers.
Verizon Wireless, the nation's largest mobile phone provider, said it would spend $1 billion on the network over the next two years. The move intensifies a game of one-upmanship among the leading mobile phone companies, which are seeking to outdo each other in offering data services over airwaves once devoted to phone traffic.
Verizon Wireless expects to offer speeds of 300 kilobits to 500 kilobits a second, which is comparable to typical downloading speeds on digital service lines or cable modem lines, Mr. Entner said. He said Cingular and Sprint typically offer slower wireless data transmission speeds, but he expects them to upgrade their networks."

Offer a reasonable pricing schedule and I'm there...
