Verizon Wireless Cuts Price on Net Access

From Reuters

Verizon Wireless cut the price of high-speed wireless service for laptop computer users by 25% in a promotion aimed at winning more customers.

Verizon Wireless, a venture of Verizon Communications Inc. and Vodafone Group, said it would offer a price of $59.99 a month through 2005. It had been charging $79.99 a month for the service, which delivers the Internet to laptops at speeds comparable to some home computers.

Verizon began selling high-speed services based on EV-DO technology to laptop computer users in some markets in 2003 and plans to expand the service to cover about half the U.S. population by year’s end.
