Novatel U679 Turbo Stick Brings Bell 4G to Laptops

Canadian wireless carrier Bell has unleashed its 4G LTE network, but not everyone has a device that is capable to hitch a ride on this fast mobile Internet connection. But now, you might just have a chance with the Novatel U679 Turbo Stick.

Also going by the name “Ovation MC 679,” the Novatel U679 Turbo Stick is an LTE USB modem that can hit at downloading speeds of up to 75Mbps where Bell LTE is available, but that might be between 7 and 14 Mbps in real life. On LTE-less areas, the modem falls back to top speeds of 42Mbps through dual-carrier HSPA+ or at 21Mbps through HSPA+. The device comes equipped with an internal MIMO receive antenna for optimal performance and is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS.

The device is now available for only $60 with a three-year contract, or can be purchase commitment-free for $200.
