The GlobalAccess plan is still overpriced.

If you're a traveler with a need for a worldwide mobile internet connection, check out this news from Verizon. They've just sent out a press release announcing the launch of the Verizon Fivespot. This "global ready mobile hotspot" allows five devices to grab a WiFi connection. It comes with a SIM card that gives access in 200 countries. On the GlobalAccess plan, 120 of those have 3G.

The Fivespot comes with support for CDMA 1xEv-DO Rev. A/Rev. 0, 800 and 1900 MHz, as well as WCDMA/HSDPA/HSUPA 850/1900/2100 MHz and GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 MHz. It has VPN support and weighs just 2.82 ounces. You'll be able to buy one starting October 7th for $99.99 (after a $100 rebate).

Verizon's GlobalAccess plan is $129.99 for monthly access, which gives 5 GB in the US and Canada with .05 cents per MB over that. There is also 100 MB allowed in "certain" countries, with .005 cents per KB after that. $219.99 brings you the same US/Canada deals, plus 200 MB in "select" countries". You can also pay per KB.
