Verizon’s customers who often travel abroad should be happy to find out that the largest North American carrier has announced the USB1000 Global Modem (manufactured by Novatel Wireless), which features EV-DO Rev A and HSPA, thus being able to provide high-speed data connectivity both inside and outside the US.
The USB1000 Global Modem will be available from Verizon starting tomorrow, June 19 – the same day when AT&T and Apple are launching the iPhone 3G S.
With a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $50 mail-in rebate, the USB1000 costs $149.99.
Verizon offers the USB1000 together with the GlobalAccess plan, available in two options: monthly or pay-per-use.
The monthly GlobalAccess plan can be used in 31 select destinations and costs $129.99 for 100MB, or $219.99 for 200MB per month (5GB allowance in the US and Canada is included).
