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.





"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
