Novatel MC950D

Novatel today produced one of its fastest USB devices yet with the Ovation MC950D modem. Despite the limits of its external form, the device can deliver HSUPA cellular broadband at speeds rivaling even home Internet access. In peak conditions, the modem downloads at the same 7.2Mbps of the best HSDPA modems but will also upload at 2.1Mbps, outpacing nearly any everyday connection. Setup is also trivial thanks to drivers embedded on the hardware itself and a compact flip-up antenna that helps establish a good signal.

Although currently in testing with carriers in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, the MC950D supports HSDPA and HSUPA over three bands as well as legacy GPRS/EDGE access over four bands, ensuring that its fastest connection speeds work with current and future networks in North America. Modems should be available this summer, though prices are unpublished and will vary based on carriers and their respective data plans.
