How to Get It

You’ll need one of the following devices to use Mobile Broadband:
  • Computer with Mobile Broadband capabilities
  • Laptop with Mobile Broadband capabilities
  • Tablet
  • Verizon Jetpack® mobile hotspot
  • USB modem
  • PC card
  • ExpressCard™

You’ll also need one of the following Mobile Broadband plans:
  • The MORE Everything Plan – This is a standard monthly plan that requires a contract and you select a set monthly data allowance which you’re billed for at the end of your bill cycle. If you go over your data allowance, you’ll receive an additional 1 GB of data to use for a set fee. Your plan can include just your data-only device, or you can add up to 9 other devices to your plan and share the data across all of them.

  • Prepaid plan – These plans require no long-term contract, and you can select from daily, weekly and monthly data allowances, depending on the type of device you have. You add money to your prepaid account ahead of time, and based on your usage, the money is deducted from your account as needed. You can also purchase additional data allowances at any time if you find you need more.

How to Use It

The steps for using Mobile Broadband vary by device. Below are general instructions to guide you through the process. For device-specific instructions, refer to the User Guide for your device(s).

Important Information

Subject to Customer Agreement, Calling Plan, credit approval & [other service] terms.
1 Speeds require an EV-DO Rev. A-capable device. When using an EV-DO device that is not Rev. A-capable or traveling in the extended Broadband Rate and Services Area, you can expect download speeds of 400-700 Kbps and upload speeds of 60-80 Kbps.

Mobile Broadband speed claims based on our network tests with 5 MB FTP data files, without compression. VZAccess Manager will indicate when you’re in a Rev. A coverage area.
