Verizon preparing two LTE MiFi hotspots for launch, first one coming in few weeks
Verizon might have launched its 4G LTE network all the way back in December last year, but except for two 4G USB modems, there are no other devices currently supporting the high-speed network. Well, not for long as the HTC ThunderBolt is just two days away from its launch, and now two MiFi mobile hotspots are also being prepared for launch.
The Samsung SCH-LC11 Mi-Fi with support for LTE is the first one expected to come in a few weeks allowing you to hook up to 5 devices. The second one branded as the Verizon MiFi 4510L, produced by Novatel, also allows you to connect up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices and will follow suit shortly after. Big Red's 4G LTE promises to rock your Internet speedometers with downloads ranging from 5Mbps to 12Mbps, close to what some cable ISPs can offer. Now that the initial tests confirmed the speeds, we can only hope for those to come sooner rather than later, right?

Yeah, looked at their plans.... nothing unlimited and super high priced. Bill, Warren, Donald? Anybody looking for limited wireless internet? They're the only one I can think of that would be pay that much for what you get here...

Hmm, have you looked into wireless internet from other wireless companies? No one offers true unlimited, no one's network can support it. Its not for running a p2p network off of, which most regular people won't be doing anyway. The caps work for normal people web browsing, they just can't handle geeks playing 300 hours a month of WoW.

I do believe Sprint has a truly unlimited plan. I have it.

Wimax is unlimited, plus 5G of 3G, plus a roaming allotment. Verizon is just really lacking on capacity so they are trying to make it up on high priced plans. Over $80 a month for plans that are not even unlimited? Bend over for vzw.... No thanks.

Verizon is a JOKE, 5GB for $50 on a mifi, up to 5 connections!! wont take long to gobble up 5GB, id be happier if it were 25GB for $40, seriously if you connect up to 5 laptops it sure wont take long to use up 5GB, only hope left is SPRINT!! UNLIMITED PLANS FOR 4G and they are moving to LTE 4G, BY BY VERIZON, you always were to GREEDY!

Yeah, right, but where does Sprint provide 4G; anywhere in the U.S. for that matter?
