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.
