7.2Mbps USBConnect Lightning arrives at AT&T

USBConnect Lightning gives fast USB 3G

AT&T this morning added just its second Sierra Wireless device in recent memory with a new USB 3G modem. The USBConnect Lightning (shown soon) supports the carrier's faster 7.2Mbps HSPA network where it's active and is also slightly more advanced than most with a hinge design to fit oddly-shaped notebooks and a lit-up faceplate. It continues to support regular 3.6Mbps HSPA as well as legacy GPRS and EDGE.

The Lightning is considered a giveaway and will be virtually free, as AT&T plans to price the data stick at $100 with at least a $35 monthly data plan but will give $100 back in the form of a debit card rebate. The $35 plan provides 200MB a month but coexists alongside the existing $60, 5GB service.
