Verizon intros 3G Global Modem

Verizon USB1000

Verizon this morning added a new 3G adapter intended just for international travelers in the Novatel USB1000 Global Modem. The provider's first USB stick of the sort should provide 3G both inside and outside of the US without locking them into notebooks with ExpressCard slots. Neither Novatel nor Verizon are specific about feature support, though it's implied the device may support EVDO on Verizon's network and HSPA in Europe and elsewhere.

Sales start for the Global Modem on Friday, when it sells for $150 following both a mail-in rebate and signing a typical two-year data plan. Using the modem abroad requires at least a $60 US plan with pay-per-kilobyte access abroad; a $130 GlobalAccess plan extends the 5GB data cap to include roaming in Canada and supplies 100MB per month in 31 other countries. Choosing a $220 plan doubles that foreign transfer limit to 200MB.
