ZTE Jetpack 4G hotspot for Verizon clears FCC

Mobile hotspot carries radios for global travels

The ZTE Jetpack, a 4G LTE mobile hotspot to be sold by Verizon, has made its way through the FCC. The device, which can support up to ten Wi-Fi-ready devices, sustains download speeds of 5Mbps to 12Mbps and upload speeds of 2Mbps to 5Mbps. FCC approval is one of the last hurdles before the product will hit Verizon's shelves.

The carrier announced the hotspot at CES last month. In addition to Verizon's 3G and 4G LTE networks, it supports CDMA and EVDO technology as fallbacks. The hotspot sports an OLED display to display usage alerts and make basic changes without turning to another device.

Verizon has promised the Jetpack "in the coming weeks," but has provided no firm date or pricing. [via Engadget]
