The Federal Communications Commission recently approved a new device from LG. The LG VL600 was approved with support for CDMA EVDO 850/1900MHz and LTE 700MHz. According to the FCC web site, the VL600 is a USB modem, which is typically used with laptops to provide broadband access. Nokia released an LTE modem in Europe in 2009, but this is the first LTE device approved for use in the U.S. Verizon Wireless is currently testing and building out an LTE network in the U.S. The network is being tested in Boston and Seattle. Verizon plans to launch its LTE network at some point later this year, though the company has not confirmed when. The first types of devices that will be able to access the LTE network will likely be devices such as the LG VL600 LTE modem.
