Customers who want to take advantage of the fastest national wireless data connections in the United States can now receive a free EDGE PC card modem when they sign up for a two year unlimited data plan with AT&T Wireless.
From today through April 30, AT&T Wireless customers who sign up for a qualified two-year $79.99 unlimited data plan will receive a free Sony Ericsson GC-82 modem card valued at $249.99 (after rebate).
"Fast access to information on-the-go is more important than ever, and with EDGE, businesses can really mobilize employees by giving them the ability to take their desktop experience out of the office," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of business data solutions for AT&T Wireless. "This offer is another example of AT&T Wireless' commitment to deliver innovative and aggressive programs to meet our customers' needs."
According to a January poll of chief information officers by CIO Magazine, information technology spending is expected to increase more than eight percent over the next 12 months.
AT&T Wireless EDGE service is available today to nearly 220 million people living and working in 6,500 cities and towns, and in areas along some 30,000 miles of interstate highways. When using the EDGE wireless modem card, mobile workers can access the Internet and corporate intranet sites, or download e-mail with attachments with text, graphics or spreadsheets, at speeds averaging 100-130Kbps and bursts up to 200Kbps.
