? re prepaid mobile broadband (will the novatel USB760 work for such a plan?)





i'm going to be on a long car trip coming up, and i need broadband internet access for my laptop for 4-6 hours. this is a one-time need, so i'm looking at getting a single-day mobile broadband internet plan setup.


given that i'm trying to accomplish this as economically as possible:


what type of modem do i need to purchase? the brand new 4g modems on verizon's webpage are quite expensive when purchased w/out a plan. would something like the novatel verizon USB760 modem allow me to connect with a one-day broadband plan?


i have found the novatel USB760 for around $50. if anyone has any other suggestions, your advice would be much appreciated.


thank you!

Yes you can use this device as a source of Internet Access.  What I recommend is using our data calculator to determine the amount of usage that you will need for your trip.  Here is the link to the data calculator http://www.verizonwireless.com/splash_includes/datacalculator.html.  

Also, after you use the Data Calculator, here are our prepaid plans for you to review: 

Data Allowance (sending and receiving)AccessExpires
100MB$15Day (24 hours)
300MB$30Week (7 days: remaining day, plus next 6 calendar days)
1GB$50Month (30 days: remaining day, plus next 29 days)
5GB$80Month (30 days: remaining day, plus next 29 days)
Note: Once Prepaid Mobile Broadband allowance or expiration is reached, any session that is in progress will end, and any content that is being sent or received may be lost.
