T-Mobile 3G webConnect USB likely coming March 25th

By: Shawn February 22nd, 2009

 

After previously posting some “in the wild” (more like in our hand) pictures of the upcoming T-Mobile webConnect USB, we’ve been patiently awaiting a release date and maybe even some pricing. Our friends over at Engadget got their hands on an internal screenshot, and has brought us all of the information we could want and more. Here is what we know:

  • Existing Customers will be able to purchase the webConnect USB Modem starting March 25th
  • The price will be $59.99 per month, and you will receive 5 GB of bandwidth on T-Mobile’s 3G, EDGE or T-Mobile Hotspot. Verizon and AT&T have the same pricing for their 3G USB Modems, without the Hotspot service
  • T-Mobile connection manager will automatically detect the best available T-Mobile network
  • Customers can insert a MicroSD card into their USB Modem, and store up to 8 GB worth of fun information as if it were a USB flash drive.
Alright, so we admin we were expecting a little more from T-Mobile, the company that has to always undercut the competition at least a little bit. Our optimistic guess is that T-Mobile is giving it a test run, to see if those that purchase the USB Modem have problems or if they are satisfied. Once T-Mobile is assured that the product is satisfactory, prices may be lowered and the bandwidth limit my be raised. Obviously this is wishful thinking, but as long as we admit that, it can’t hurt, right? Right. For now, we look forward to testing T-Mobile’s 3G network on the go, while storing movies, music, and other secret documents on the 8 GB of space provided on the USB drive. Stay tuned for more!

    nobody will get this plan when the price and usage limit are same as other 3
    what is your advantage to justify the price?!
    this plan will be a major failure!

    60 bucks for 5GB is bogus. But then again, atleast they’re not lying by quoting ‘Unlimited’ and having a 5gb fine print cap.

    Would be great if they had more options, like 20GB for 5GB, 40 for 10GB, 60 for 15Gb and such.
