Verizon Wireless today announced the imminent launch of its BroadbandAccess wireless high-speed data service in 11 new markets, bringing the total to 14 metro areas. The new markets will come online next Monday, along with coverage at a number of airports in additional cities. BroadbandAccess uses CDMA 1xEV-DO technology, which provides typical data speeds of 300-500 kbps, comparable to DSL and cable broadband. The new cities are Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, Milwaukee, New York, Philadelphia, Tampa, and West Palm Beach.

Sprint recently announced plans to deploy the same EV-DO technology across its network.
