To let you make the most of their 4G network, Verizon will introduce a new USB551L USB modem on its network starting March 31st (today). Made by Novatel, this modem will be capable of providing download speeds from 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds from 2 to 5 Mbps in areas where you can access Big Red’s 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.

USB551L, which is compact and portable, touts about its flexible design and high performance, despite its smaller form factor. The light weight device can provide connectivity to your devices through their USB ports, which will help you keep connected with your friends and family on the go.

Moreover, it allows you to download rich multimedia content and to check your emails with ease. Even if you are outside the coverage area of the high speed 4G LTE network, it can connect you to the Verizon 3G network also.

The advanced proprietary antenna technology used in USB551L helps maximize data transfer and the operating potential of the device. With support for a range of popular Operating Systems like Windows XP 32-bit, Vista 32/64-bit (SP2) and Windows 7 32/64-bit, MAC: 10.4 or higher, it extends its usability to a wider range, giving the users maximum choices.

Verizon will sell the new USB modem for $99.99, after a mail-in rebate of $50. However, Big Red will want you to go in for a new two year contract on a 4G mobile broadband plan. At Verizon, the 4G LTE Mobile Broadband plans start at $50 per month for a maximum data usage of 5GB.
