AT&T USBConnect Momentum 4G
AT&T gets the LTE ball rolling

AT&T may be in the news recently for controversy surrounding its impending acquisition of T-Mobile, but the company today revealed that its first LTE/HSPA+ devices would be hitting store shelves next week.

The USBConnect Momentum 4G is a USB dongle that users can plug into a free port to access AT&T's burgeoning LTE network. As its name implies, the accompanying Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G is a standalone LTE device that will broadcast to up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices. 

In addition, the already available USBConnect Adrenaline -- which has a software-disabled LTE chipset onboard -- will get a firmware update on August 26 to allow it to access AT&T's LTE network.

LTE plans will be priced at $50 for 5GB of data. Users who go over their 5GB monthly allotment will pay $10 for each additional gigabyte of data used.

AT&T plans to launch its LTE service this summer in five cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Until those cities get "lit up" with LTE, customers will have to rely on AT&T's existing HSPA+ "4G" network.
