What the Merger Means to Me
As you might guess, a merger of such proportions promises to have a significant impact on virtually every segment that is touched by telecommunications. Below, we'll give you an idea of some of the benefits you can expect. While each group is affected in a different way, the one constant is the enhanced communications capabilities Verizon brings to the market.
With Verizon Communications, business customers get a superior range of products and services not to mention world-class support. Plus with the outstanding wireless capabilities represented by Verizon Wireless, businesses can benefit from one of the world's premier wireless communications companies. Verizon means not only expert solutions for businesses, but complete solutions as well - always with an eye toward the future. Consumers
The sheer geographical scope, breadth of offerings and aggregate expertise that Verizon represents is a revolution in itself. Consumers now have a convenient, single-source for all residential communication needs - from long distance and local phone services and features, to Internet access, wireless service, high-speed connectivity and satellite television service. Our powerful wireless capabilities are particularly significant, as Verizon Wireless (the coast-to-coast wireless provider formed by the recent merger of Bell Atlantic Mobile, Vodafone/Airtouch Cellular, GTE Wireless and PrimeCo) is also part of Verizon Communications. Government
Verizon represents not only a broader range of services and solutions for government customers, but a far wider reach of these services as well, with remarkably expansive national and global coverage. Verizon customers have at their disposal such offerings as integrated network solutions for the federal government, business phone lines, Internet access, data services, long distance, payphones, enhanced calling services, telecommunications equipment and more. Investors
For the investor, the creation of Verizon will be a catalyst for growth in shareowner value. The merger gives us the best set of assets in the industry and transforms our growth profile. We have the pole position in all the major segments of the communications industry, with the largest local exchange company, more fiber optics and "first mile" assets than anyone in the business, the nation's leading wireless company, a strong position in high-growth data markets, and a significant international presence. With our scale, scope and full range of capabilities, we're positioned to capitalize on the "new economy" growth trends that are driving U.S. and global communications -- meaning Verizon is quickly shaping up to be the ultimate, "must have" investment for shareholders. International Businesses
For carriers, multinational corporations, large and small businesses looking to "go global", Verizon Communications will provide one-stop shopping for voice, data, Internet access and connectivity in markets around the globe. Verizon's new Global Network and Transport Solutions business will provide the pipes that speed all the applications people and businesses need to make the most of the biggest productivity boom in history. Leveraging Verizon's scale and scope; our voice and data assets; and a unique combination of world class customer care, technologies, innovative products and services, and 100-plus years of experience, we will provide a high-value proposition for global connectivity.
