Novatel Wireless announced today that it was launching a new wireless broadband modem called the MC950D with Fido. The modem is designed for global tri-band HSPA/UMTS and quad band EDGE/GPRS networks.
Fido subscribers can plug the modem into a USB port and get instant broadband access. The connection software needed for the modem to operate is stored on the modems internal memory. The modem is capable of download speeds of 7.2 Mbps and uploads of 2.1 Mbps.
"With the MC950D now available for their subscribers, Fido will be able to provide the best mobile data products and fastest speeds available in Canada," said Brad Weinert, president of Novatel Wireless. "We are excited to expand our HSPA carrier network in North America."
