Happy Monday, V-Team! On today’s Up To Speed live, host Andy Choi shared more on how Verizon continues to make a name for itself in Europe and beyond. He also introduced us to some of the V Teamers who are helping us with this.
Help us spread the word
Andy opened the show by reminding us to keep spreading the word about our latest promotion.
In a recent Up To Speed episode, our communications colleague Andrew Testa detailed how Verizon pays off for new and existing customers. Here are some highlights:
- You can buy an iPhone 13 from us, or up to $800 for a new 5G phone with select trade-in and select 5G Unlimited plans.
- With our best Unlimited plans, you can unlock even more value, including incredible savings on popular entertainment services like Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, Apple Music and more.
- But wait, there’s more! If you have one of our 5G Ultra Wideband Unlimited plans, you may be able to bundle it with our plug-and-play home internet, starting at $25 per month with Auto Pay.
And V-Teamer, don’t forget: when you share your Friends and Family code, your loved ones who switch to Verizon can get a bonus of up to $25 per month on new Unlimited Postpaid Cellular Accounts and $10 per month on Fios Gigabit Connection get plans.
A successful week in London
Andy reflected on how awesome it was hosting Up To Speed live from our London 5G lab last week.
He emphasized how wonderful it was to connect with so many of our international V-Teamers representing EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and APAC (Asia Pacific). He and Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business Group, showed employees, customers and media how we are driving the 5G ecosystem around the globe. He also mentioned that our global approach to business is one of the many reasons customers like Associated British Ports continue to tout Verizon 5G.
Winners of the Women In Sales Awards
Andy shared how great it was to meet and celebrate our Women in Sales Awards winners. The award winners are among the leaders in sales, operations and marketing across the region. The Women in Sales Awards (WISA) Europe promotes gender diversity in the workplace and encourages women to consider careers in sales.
Verizon Travel Pass
Andy spoke about how easy it was to connect with family in the States while in London thanks to the Verizon Travel Pass. With Travel Pass, customers can take advantage of unlimited calls and texts along with 4G LTE. With our Get More plan, you get one free TravelPass day each month and can earn up to 12 days per year.
In Europe, soccer is all about scoring goals, and a new partnership between Verizon and the Manchester United soccer team will make those goals even sweeter.
Verizon Business recently announced a dedicated strategy designed specifically for customers in stadiums and venues across Europe and Asia Pacific. This new strategy leverages Verizon’s innovative private 5G capabilities, deep industry expertise and key new technology partnerships.
Extreme Networks is named as a technology partner in Verizon’s international stadium partner ecosystem. And together we will introduce Wi-Fi solutions such as HD Wi-Fi connectivity at Manchester United Football Club’s Old Trafford Stadium. These improvements will improve the club’s digital services such as mobile ticketing and contactless transactions.
Visit to the reading office
Andy introduced us to some members of the V-Team in our Reading, UK office. The office, which is approximately 40 miles from our London office, is home to nearly 1,000 of our Verizon colleagues. They represent Verizon Business, Finance, Network, Legal, HR, Marketing and Strategy. We heard from Bronwynn Gordon, Associate General Manager, International Payroll, Grant Taylor, End User Support Engineer, and Zak Graham, International Logistics Support. They all shared why they love being part of the V-Team.
Remember to fill out your VZPulse+ survey
V-Team, another reminder to fill out your VZPulse+ survey. You still have seven days to complete them as the entry deadline is May 16th.
This is a great opportunity to make your voice heard and help us move forward together to make Verizon an even better place to work. The survey is completely confidential and is conducted by our external partner, Gallup, to ensure the confidentiality of your responses.
We’re flying to Texas
Andy closed the episode by sharing that Up To Speed will be traveling to Texas. We’ll be visiting the V-Team at our Irving office to learn about all the great things they are doing to help our business grow.
