NetZero today announced the launch of a new mobile broadband service that can provide "4G" access to Wi-Fi-equipped devices. The service requires customers to purchase either a mobile hotspot for $99.95 or a laptop dongle for $49.95. There are four plan options. With the purchase of one of the connection devices, customers can access up to 200MB per month for free for the period of one year. For those who need more data, NetZero is also offering 500MB for $9.95 per month, 1GB for $19.95 per month, 2GB for $34.95 per month, or 4GB for $49.95 per month. The free and $9.95 plans offer data at 1Mbps ("LightSpeed"). All the other plans off data at 10Mbps ("WarpSpeed"). Uploads are a maximum 1.5Mbps. Since there are no contracts, customers can toggle between the different speeds and data packages at any time to meet their needs. There are also no overage fees. According to NetZero, it will send alerts when users near their monthly data limit, and will offer them three options moving forward: top-up their data allotment (250MB for $6.95 or 1GB for $19.95), upgrade their plan, or wait until the end of the billing cycle. The service is available in 80 markets and uses Clearwire's WiMax network to provide connectivity.

Almost, but not quite
