Verizon Wireless is rolling out its LTE4Gnetwork all around the country in a big way. Over the next months many more cities will get connected and eventually the 4G network will cover as much of the country as the 3G network does today. To support the people that want to use the LTE network on their computer Verizon has launched a new LTE modem.
The modem is the Verizon USB551I 4G LTE modem and it will be available on the 4G network starting tomorrow. The modem promises speeds of 5-12Mbps download and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G areas. The modem is small and will be easy to pack up and take with you on the go.
The modem will also allow the user who leaves a 4G area to use a 3G network as well so they can be connected everywhere. The modem supports Windows and Mac 10.4 and up. The modem will sell for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new 2-year agreement on a 4G mobile dataplan.
The mobile data plan at $50 a month gives you only 5GB of bandwidth, so don't go streaming HD movies from Netflix if you buy. The modem is made by Novatel and has a hideaway USB plug to keep it safe in transit. Verizon says over the next three years LTE will come to its entire 3G area.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
