The Novatel 740 is now available: The ExpressCard works in Windows and Macs using Verizon’s upgraded EVDO Rev. A network, as well as the parts of its network that still run at EVDO Rev. 0 and with 1xRTT. The claimed rates are 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps downstream and 500 to 800 Kbps upstream. The card is $180 with a two-year commitment and $230 with a one-year commitment. Monthly rates are the same as with earlier data plans: $60 with a voice plan and two-year commitment; $80 without.
Their unlimited service remains “unmetered,” as I term it. You can use all the bandwidth you want as long as it’s limited to 5 GB per month and falls into Web surfing, email, and intranet application categories.
