Denver -- Continuing to build on its strategy to provide its customers superior wireless services, Verizon Wireless today announced the rollout of two award-winning services in greater Denver -- one developed for the consumer market, the other primarily for business customers. V CAST, the nation's first 3G wireless broadband multimedia service for consumers, and BroadbandAccess, the fastest wide-area wireless Internet access service available in the nation, are both available today not only in greater Denver, but also from Ft. Collins to the north, to Parker and Highlands Ranch to the south, and from Denver west to Boulder and at Denver International Airport. Both services run on the company's high-speed EV-DO (Evolution Data-Optimized) wireless broadband network -- the nation's largest and fastest.
