Verizon enhances Mobile Web 2.0

InfoSpace inked a deal with Verizon Wireless to upgrade the carrier's Mobile Web 2.0 service, allowing subscribers to get faster, easier access to their content and information.

The deal extends InfoSpace's multi-year agreement with Verizon Wireless, which includes providing InfoSpace's Mobile Services Platform and providing such services as hosting and subscription management capabilities.

The extension of the Verizon contract is good news for InfoSpace, which last fall suffered a major blow to its business when it announced one of its major operator partners, believed to be Cingular Wireless, had decided to develop direct licensing relationships with major record labels instead of using InfoSpace.
