Cricket Wireless has added a new option to its lineup for users who need a 4G supporting USB modem for their laptop or desktop computer. The product is called the Huawei Boltz Modem. The modem is the first 4G device to land on the cricket wireless network.
The modem has a sleek and lightweight design with the required installation software pre-installed on the device. Software is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems, and the user interface is available in English and Spanish. One of the cooler features of the new modem is that it has a hinge that allows the USB 2.0 plug to rotate allowing it to fit into your computer and at the most convenient angle.
The modem also has an integrated microSD card slot that supports up to 32 GB of additional storage. With a memory card inserted, the modem can be used as a flash drive. The model has been recently updated to support 4G over-the-air and 4G PCS Band.
That means that the device supports both 4G and 3G networks in all 4G Cricket markets. The modem also features aGPS support. The modem is available for $149.99 at company-owned stores and dealers in the Las Vegas and Tucson areas.
