Verizon’s Pantech UML290 4G LTE modem available tomorrow, too

Earlier this week, when Verizon announced that its 4G LTE network would go live on December 5 (i.e. tomorrow), it said that only the LG VL600 modem would be available for the beginning.

However, it turns out that there will be two modems launched tomorrow. Apart form the LG one, customers will also be able to buy the Pantech UML290 4G.

The Pantech modem will provide 4G download speeds of up to 12Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 5Mbps (where LTE coverage is available, of course). The modem obviously also supports Verizon’s 3G network.

Like LG’s modem, the UML290 4G will cost $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate – new 2-yr contract and a 4G Mobile Broadband Plan are required. More info on Verizon’s LTE network can be found here.

    See if you can ask them what model cable modem that they would install and then ask them if they are able to use one of your own. Then go look some info on the one that they provide and see if it is good or not and buy a better one like the surfboard if theirs is bad.

    Florin, in your opinion which of the two would you think is the better one? This is a good price @99 even with the 2yr contract for me I have been a Verizon customer since 1995 (my god that is a long time) so the 2 yr contract for me is not an issue. I think they need to reward me as longest loyal customer ever LOL Hey, I like their customer support what can I say, that means a lot to me and now that I use my cell phones for mobile to mobile video sharing using (does that sound like a plug sorry lol) I really need a service that I can rely on for my business, so far Verizon has never EVER let me down. Thanks for the post Florin please let me know which one you think is better!
