No, AT&T hasn’t quite launched their 4G LTE network just yet, but next week will bring their first devices enabled for the next-gen technology. Before we get ahead of ourselves, neither of the two will be phones of any sort. AT&T has opted to follow the trend of other carriers rolling out their 4G networks by instead introducing a personal modem and a WiFi hotspot. The USBConnect Momentum and MiFi-like Elevate will draw their “4G” from AT&T’s HSPA+ network for the time being. Though it is unclear when LTE signals will begin their transmission, for these mobile hotspot devices prices will start at $50/month for 5GB of data with an additional $10 charged for each gigabyte used over the allotment.
