Verizon 4G LTE Modems Receiving Mac Support In February

Verizon’s 4G LTE modems are finally going to be gaining support for Macs.

When Verizon’s 4G LTE network was announced back in Dec. everyone was excited about the potential mobile broadband speeds, but sadly Mac users were being left out in the cold.  The popular carrier promised that Mac support would eventually come, but there was no indication of when that might happen.

According to PhoneScoop, Verizon has announced that a software update is on its way to the LG-VL600 that will improve performance as well as finally bring the support for Mac OS X that people have been waiting for.

During our time in Las Vegas earlier this month for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), we were all impressed with the speeds Verizon’s 4G LTE was giving us, but it was annoying we had to keep booting one of the Mac laptops we had with us into Windows just so we could use the modem.  While nice to have the speed, it would also be nice to be able to use it when and how we wanted.

No specific date has been given for the update, but definitely keep your eyes open beginning next week.

What say you?  Are you excited for 4G LTE to come to Macs?
