NEW SERVICE: Verizon Wireless will offer a wireless broadband service that's designed for use in rural and remote homes that can't get DSL or cable. It's faster than most DSL services.

THE COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE: HomeFusion could provide potent competition for satellite broadband providers, which are often "providers of last resort" for rural homes.

THE DETAILS: Dallas, Nashville, Tenn., and Birmingham, Ala., will be the first areas to get the service, later this month. By the end of the year, Verizon hopes to provide it everywhere it has coverage with its new "LTE" wireless network.
