Sprint U301 3G/4G USB Modem Review Now Online!

sprint 3g/4g u301
Like it's predecessor the U300, the new Franklin U301 for Sprint is a dual-mode 3G/4G USB modem, meaning it is able to connect to Sprint's nationwide EVDO Rev-A 3G network as well as the new 4G WiMAX network. Sprint's 4G network is only available in about 30 cities right now (although it is launching in new cities every quarter), but a 3G/4G device like the U301 can be a great option even for users who aren't currently in a Sprint 4G area. The monthly cost for Sprint's 3G/4G service is the same as their 3G-only plan ($59.99/month), so the U301 should not be discounted as an option even if you're not looking for 4G capabilities at this time.
