Verizon intros GlobalAccess plan, USB1000 Global Modem
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).
