Verizon 4G LTE Modem Now Supports Mac OS X

Earlier today, Verizon Wireless released an update to their VZAccess Manager software for Mac that brings compatibility with one of the 4G LTE modems sold by the company, the Pantech UML290. Mac users can now connect to Verizon’s LTE network using the new 7.2.4 version of the app, which is available for download here.

The Pantech UML290 will cost you $100 with a two-year contract, with a 4G data plan available at $50 per month for 5 GB of data. The other 4G LTE modem, the LG VL600, doesn’t have OS X support yet. From the system requirements:

- OSX 10.4.72 or higher (Tiger), OSX 10.52 or higher (Leopard) 32-bit, OSX 10.62 or higher (Snow Leopard) 32-bit

- PowerMac G3 or newer with appropriate device interface
