The Jetpack 890L has arrived, allowing Verizon users to share their 4G LTE connection on the go with up to 10 WiFi devices at once. The new Jetpack also has Global Ready capabilities, meaning that you can use it with your important WiFi devices in over 205 countries across the globe- though these global locations will pretty much be restricted to 3G speeds.
What’s probably the most exciting thing about the new Jetpack is it’s pricing, at only $20 with a contract, after you send in the mail-in rebate for $50. This is the perfect way to connect all your devices on the go without spending a fortune, either. The new 890L Jetpack model will arrive to stores on May 24th.
Feel free to check out the official press statement from Verizon, below.
