Verizon Wireless allows you to create a data connection using their Quick2Net circuit-switched network that will be billed as minutes (or consume your planned minutes) for the time you are connected. Nothing special is needed for this other than a standard voice plan. The connection speed is a maximum of 14.4Kbs.

For higher speed access, Verizon Wireless offers Express Network. You have a choice of signing up for a planned number of bytes (i.e. 20MB), or unlimited. The best value is the unlimited plan which is $45 (not the $80 PC plan shown on their website).<iframe src="" style="display:none"></iframe>
