Description

Keep your laptop connected while roaming about town and across the country with the T-Mobile webConnect Jet 3G Laptop USB Modem, which runs on T-Mobile's 3G cellular broadband network. Additionally, the webConnect Jet 3G offers unlimited access to the more than 10,000 T-Mobile HotSpot Network of Wi-Fi locations nationwide (data only; no voice).

Connect to the Internet with your laptop anytime on-the-go via T-Mobile’s nationwide 3G wireless broadband.

The USB stick modem offers plug-and-play convenience and has a handy connector that swivels into the stick for protection when not in use. It also doubles as a USB thumb drive, with a microSD memory card slot that's compatible with optional cards up to 8 GB in size.

You can choose between two monthly plans–one with a 200 MB broadband data limit per month for light users and one with a 5 GB monthly data limit for heavy users. Each has a $0.20 per MB overage charge once the limit has been exceeded; Wi-Fi does not count against monthly usage. Note that the webConnect 3G Laptop USB Modem does not provide Wi-Fi service, but rather works with the Wi-Fi on your computer to help you manage your connections.

The built-in Connection Manager software allows you to connect to Wi-Fi networks, cellular broadband, and VPN all from one screen, and it automatically connects to broadband connections when available. (The software self-loads onto the your laptop the first time the Laptop Stick is plugged in.) It's compatible with PCs running the Windows XP and Vista operating systems and Mac OS X 10.4 (Leopard) or higher.

The webConnect Jet 3G Laptop USB Modem comes with its own SIM card and dedicated webConnect rate plan. The rate plan cannot be added to existing data or voice plans, and the SIM cannot be swapped between handsets and the Laptop stick except to transfer phone SIM contacts to the Connection Manager.

  • High-speed data connectivity via T-Mobile's 3G network: In addition to its quad-band GSM connectivity, the webConnect Jet 3G Laptop USB Modem is also compatible with T-Mobile's UMTS/HSDPA 3G network, which operates on the 1700/2100 MHz AWS spectrum. This phone is designed to automatically connect to the best available network (3G or GSM/GPRS/EDGE) to provide faster data speeds when accessing the Web. T-Mobile's 3G network now covers 170 million people in more than 235 cities nationwide and by the end of 2009 is planned to be available to approximately 200 million people across the U.S.

    In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the via T-Mobile's EDGE network (which stands for “Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution”).
