Bedminster, NJ and Hauppauge, NY -- Verizon Wireless and UTStarcom Personal Communications and a leading provider of innovative wireless devices, announced today the immediate availability of the Verizon Wireless PC 5740 wireless PC Card for use on Verizon Wireless' Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network. With the PC 5740 Card, customers can take advantage of Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess wireless broadband service that provides access with average speeds of 400 - 700 kbps based on Verizon Wireless' network tests in more than 50 major metropolitan markets and 57 airports in the nation.
Marketed by UTStarcom Personal Communications, the PC 5740 dual-band (800/1900 MHz) CDMA2000 1xEV-DO wireless Type II PCMCIA card allows users to connect to the BroadbandAccess network. The wireless PC Card is compatible with Microso ft Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP, measures 4.56" x 2.08" x 0.39" and fits into a standard PCMCIA slot.
Because the technology platform BroadbandAccess runs on is backward compatible - a distinct advantage to using CDMA technology - customers who travel outside a BroadbandAccess coverage area with the PC 5740 Card will seamlessly switch to Verizon Wireless' existing 1xRTT NationalAccess network to remain connected to their customers and the office while on the road.
The PC 5740 is available for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year customer agreement; Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess wide-area wireless broadband service is available for $79.99 monthly access for unlimited use.
