Verizon preparing two LTE MiFi hotspots for launch, first one coming in few weeks

Verizon might have launched its 4GLTE network all the way back in December last year, but exceptfor two 4G USB modems, there are no other devices currentlysupporting 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 hotspotsare also being prepared for launch.

The Samsung SCH-LC11 Mi-Fi withsupport for LTE is the first one expected to come in a few weeksallowing you to hook up to 5 devices. The second one branded as theVerizon MiFi 4510L, produced by Novatel, also allows you toconnect up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices and will follow suit shortlyafter. Big Red's 4G LTE promises to rock your Internet speedometerswith downloads ranging from 5Mbps to 12Mbps, close to what some cableISPs can offer. Now that the initial tests confirmed the speeds, we can only hope for those tocome sooner rather than later, right?

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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...
