LG and PanTech modems offer 3G/4G support

As Verizon prepares to launch its LTE-based 4G network in select cities, two of the USB modems have surfaced on the company's Testman site. The devices include LG's VL600, which has been detailed in earlier leaks, and Pantech's UML290. Both modems are expected to offer backwards compatibility with existing 3G networks.

The site does not reveal much information surrounding the modems, as the prices and pictures appear to be placeholders. FCC documents confirm the VL600 will work on the 700MHz LTE band, along with the 800MHz and 1,900MHz EVDO bands.

Verizon has promised 4G coverage in 38 cities by the end of the year, while the full deployment across the existing 3G footprint is expected by 2013. USB modems and other wireless broadband devices will be the first to ship, followed by phones sometime in 2011. [via phoneArena]
