Verizon Expands 3G Wireless Coverage

Verizon Wireless is significantly expanding the availability of the company's wireless broadband services, making its services available in more than 14 major metropolitan areas starting next week. The services, which include Los Angeles and expansion of services in San Diego, compete with Wi-Fi hot spots and even DSL providers. The company is offering unlimited use for a $79.99 monthly access fee. The service is expected to offer a stiff challenge to both Wi-Fi providers and wired DSL providers due to its high speed and geographic coverage.
