December 6, 2010, By Alex Ion

Verizon’s 4G LTE modems have been spotted in the wild some time ago and now it’s time for Big Red to actually introduce them to the market, so meet the new LG VL600 4G LTE USB modem. Compact and lightweight, with a flip cover and a sleek outer finish, the new LG VL600 modem is capable to work on both the old 3G network but also on the new 4G LTE network.

If interested, the new LG VL600 4G LTE USB modem will cost $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. That price is available only if you get your signature on a two year agreement for a 4G mobile broadband plan. But think what you’re getting: your laptop will be turned into a mobile powerhouse with 4G speeds and wide area wireless connectivity from virtually anywhere.

LG VL600 modem is equipped with a fixed USB connector, an LED status indicator and an internal antenna.

As for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, it is the fastest and most advanced 4G network in America: LTE will be supporting average data rates per user of 5-12 Mbps in the forward link, and 2-5 Mbps in the reverse link. What does that mean? It will truly enable video application on the downlink as well as uplink (video-sharing, surveillance, conferencing and streaming in higher definition).

On top of that, Big Red’s LTE network provides enhanced security through the implementation of UICC Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) and the associated robust and non-invasive key storage and symmetric key authentication using 128-bit private keys.
