Alltel intros ‘Day Pass’ for wireless Web surfers

Alltel Corp. announced it will offer a new “Day Pass” service for wireless Web browsing. For $1.50, Alltel customers will be able to buy a 24-hour pass to Alltel’s Axcess wireless Web service.
“Alltel continues to offer services that allow customers to easily integrate mobile content into their daily lives,” said Wade McGill, senior VP of product management for Alltel. “The introduction of the Day Pass option is another example of Alltel’s commitment to give our customers the ability to control and customize their wireless experience.”
Alltel said the service works through technology from partner Motricity.
Typically, carriers charge a per-kilobyte or per-minute fee to those users who access the wireless Web without a data access plan.
Alltel’s efforts come as carriers across the country work to boost sagging voice revenues with sales of wireless data products. Already, wireless data accounts for up to 10 percent of some carriers’ average revenues per user.
