Driver release held up by Verizon?

I really want to get one of the new 4G USB modems that I can plug into a suitably designed router so I can have Internet access from multiple computers in our RV. Spoke with someone at Zoom, a company that makes the product I need, but he told me that until they have Linux drivers, they cannot make their router compatible with the newer modems offered by Verizon. So, how about it, Verizon? When the router supports your modem, I'll buy one in a heartbeat. Until then, I'm sticking with my 3G V740 that is more than two years old.

I'd go ahead and buy then.  Cradlepoint ( already supports the Pantech UML290 and LG VL600 USB modems.  Support for the 551L (Novatel) model that just came out will probably happen eventually as well.  See the press release here:

There are multiple routers to choose from depending on what features you require.
