AT&T Announces Unite 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot

by Todd Haselton | January 4, 2013January 4, 2013 10:30 am PDT

AT&T announced its latest 4G mobile hotspot on Friday, the AT&T Unite, made by Sierra Wireless. The device features a 2.4-inch touchscreen display and allows up to 10 other Wi-Fi devices to connect and share a mobile data connection at once. In other words, you and your pals can all surf the web or use tablets off of a single data connection. There’s even an on-screen meter to let you know when you’re about to hit your monthly allotment.

AT&T did not announce pricing or a release date for the Unite, although we expect it will be available in the coming weeks.

AT&T Unite Provides Easy to Use Mobile Internet On-The-Go

AT&T* announced today that it will be the exclusive carrier of the AT&T Unite, a 4G LTE mobile hotspot from Sierra Wireless that lets customers take the mobile internet with them on-the-go.**

AT&T Unite has an easy to use 2.4” touchscreen display and can connect up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices, including a guest hotspot for one-time users. Customers can also manage connected devices, change network and device settings and block unwanted devices from joining the network – directly from the screen. AT&T Unite is powered by the nation’s largest 4G network.  An on-screen meter monitors data consumption, making it easier to track your usage.

Customers purchasing connected devices from AT&T have more options in choosing the plan that’s right for them and their mobile devices. Customers can choose one of AT&T’s existing individual or family plans or select a shared data plan. With  AT&T Mobile Share plans, new and existing customers can share a single bucket of data across smartphones, tablets, and other compatible devices, including the AT&T Unite. Adding a mobile hotspot device to a Mobile Share plan is just $20 a month. ***

“This new mobile hotspot makes customers’ lives easier by allowing them to stay connected to family, friends, and work while on-the-go and on any Wi-Fi enabled device,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices and Developer Services, AT&T. “Coupled with our Mobile Share plans, the AT&T Unite is a compelling and valuable option for connecting to the nation’s largest 4G network.”

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than 285 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul, and the AT&T Unite is compatible with both. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.
