Cellphone accessories, not the cellphones, drive the current tide of wireless. To these ends Verizon is on the bandwagon to provide its customers with the latest multimedia and audio accessories. Ringtones are available in V Cast format or MP3. Users may browse Top 10 ringtones or shop the entire library of Verizon tones. Better yet, find out in advance which ringtones will work on your model of phone by filtering your search. And of course listen before you buy.
Wireless communications is just one small segment of the Verizon business model. The company has grown from its telecommunications packages that include traditional phone services, and broadband, as well as business data communications that run over fiber optic and IP networks purported to be the most reliable. This type of communications convergence makes it possible for Verizon to offer large-scale business solutions outside the Continental U.S.
Since most of the 21st century’s leading telecoms are an amalgam of mergers it stands to reason that most also have absorbed the DNA of the leading telephone pioneers into their communications bloodlines. Cingular pulsates with AT&T, Sprint with Nextel, and Verizon with GTE and Bell Atlantic. The Verizon name was only heard for the first time in 2000. Verizon Wireless quickly succumbed to Verizon Communications, a more telling distinction. Telecom DNA or not, this makes Verizon a hugely successful company given its novitiate time in the ring.
A large hunk of Verizon’s business is devoted first to residential phone and data services. Residential customers can subscribe to the broadband service that delivers voice and high-speed Internet service. Verizon’s Iobi feature was originally designed for their business customers, but now the feature has been repackaged into a residential version. Iobi gives both private and business-class customers the flexibility to funnel all calls, emails and other communications into one desktop management tool.
The second hunk of Verizon’s business is business: large and medium-scale voice and data solutions for national and international business.
The wireless segment of the telecom provides competitive nationwide calling plans. Customers may take a look at a map of the Verizon coverage.
