"Back in April, we took a look at the T-Mobile WebConnect USB Laptop Stick. It was T-Mobile's first 3G cellular modem, but these devices aren't new. In fact, T-Mobile's the last of the major carriers as AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless have had mobile broadband products for some time now, but we thought for the sake of comparison, we'd take a look at the offerings from the other service providers, starting with the Verizon Wireless USB760.

"The Verizon Wireless USB760 modem is available for $49.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates and discounts. The price for its service plan is the same as T-Mobile's and customers can select from one- or two-year BroadBandAccess plans: 5GB for $59.99 per month or 50MB for $39.99 per month. While we thought T-Mobile's pricing was too high, Verizon has a little more argument in that it offers the largest 3G network in the U.S. (in case their commercials haven't drilled that into your head yet) and reaches 281 million people (with the Alltel acquisition)."
