OVERLAND PARK, KS, and VANCOUVER, June 22 /CNW/ - Sprint (NYSE: S) and Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR; TSX: SW) today announced the availability of Sprint 3G/4G USB 250U mobile broadband modem from Sierra Wireless, bringing customers lightning fast speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G(1) in any of the 33 Sprint 4G markets and dependable 3G speeds virtually everywhere else. Whether customers are streaming Hulu live, surfing the Internet or downloading huge files, they will appreciate its compact size, round design, and 180-degree rotating hinge, which can accommodate both horizontal and vertical USB ports and provide an ideal fit for virtually any laptop.

Sprint 3G/4G USB 250U is available now through Business Direct and Business Solutions Partners followed by full channel availability by mid-July. Customers can purchase Sprint 3G/4G USB 250U from Sprint for free (excluding taxes) after a $50 mail-in-rebate, a $49.99 instant savings and with a two-year service agreement on a new line activation or eligible upgrade. Sprint's 3G/4G Mobile Broadband Connection plan is priced at $59.99 per month for unlimited use on the Sprint 4G Network and 5 GB of data on the Sprint 3G Network (price plans exclude surcharges and taxes).(2)

"Sprint continues to lead the 4G revolution and is proud to expand its growing portfolio of devices with the addition of 3G/4G USB 250U from Sierra Wireless," said Fared Adib, vice president-Product Development for Sprint. "Consumers, businesses and industries such as construction, government, healthcare and transportation will be able to extend their Internet experience beyond the home and office and benefit from the constant connectivity and real-time access at lightning fast speeds."

Sprint 3G/4G USB 250U supports Windows(R) 7, Windows Vista(R), Windows XP and Mac OS(R). Customers will appreciate its integrated GPS capability, which provides location, navigation and mapping solutions when connected to the Sprint 3G network. It is Sprint's first USB modem with dual external antenna ports, and it is equipped with separate LED displays that make it easy for a user to know whether they are connected to Sprint's 3G or 4G network. This unique, dual-mode device delivers faster speeds that can help businesses move ahead with their business goals - such as improved customer satisfaction, increased productivity and increased revenue.

"Following on the success of Overdrive(TM) 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, we are extremely pleased to offer Sprint customers a unique new 3G/4G device, combining the speed of 4G with the reliable coverage of Sprint's 3G network," said Mike O'Brien, vice president-Operator and Distributor Sales for Sierra Wireless. "The Sprint 3G/4G USB 250U mobile broadband modem from Sierra Wireless is made for road warriors, providing flexibility, high quality and top-notch performance."

Sprint is the first national wireless carrier to test, launch and market 4G technology. Sprint 4G is currently available in 33 markets, covers 50 million people and is expected to cover up to 120 million people by the end of 2010. Sprint 4G is available today in Georgia - Atlanta, Milledgeville; Hawaii - Honolulu, Maui; Idaho - Boise; Illinois - Chicago; Maryland - Baltimore; Missouri - Kansas City; Nevada - Las Vegas; North Carolina - Charlotte, Greensboro (along with High Point and Winston-Salem), Raleigh (along with Cary, Chapel Hill and Durham); Oregon - Portland, Salem; Pennsylvania - Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Reading, York; Texas - Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco, Wichita Falls; and Washington - Bellingham, Seattle. For more information, visit 3Gstore.com/coverage

In 2010, Sprint expects to launch 4G service in multiple markets, including Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.


The 250U has a different shape compared to any other USB Modem, looks like:




The modem is expected to be available from Sprint the first week in July. Looks like CLEAR will also have the modem around the same time.

SO, what do you think of this new form factor?

Love it or hate it?

There are actually two antenna ports - one for 4G and one for 3G. Right now, there are no 4G antennas available, but we do anticipate that antennas will be available at some point in the future. The 3G antenna port is a usable port, and 3Gstore carries a variety of antennas bundled with the appropriate 250U adapter cable.

An important note about the 250U's antenna ports: Sierra Wireless has stated that they have NOT certified any antennas that are intended to improve both 3G and 4G signal. Other retailers may be selling antennas for 3G/4G, but they are NOT certified for use by Sierra Wireless and are not recommended; they may even damage the device or cause signal degradation. If you plan to use an antenna with the 250U, it's important to understand that only 3G antennas are compatible (for now - until a manufacturer makes a 4G antenna that's compatible), and you must use them in the lower of the two antenna ports (the one intended for 3G antennas).

Does anyone know if this device will work on Ubuntu or any Linux distribution?

If so I plan on purchasing but I don't want to pay for it unless I know it will work.

No Linux support for this device, nor does the manufacturer plan on adding Linux support.

Hi GChris,

I know that Sierra is not providing Linux support, but often times the community gets things working without manufacturer support. Based on your USB output, it seems like the device is recognized. Any reason it wouldn't work?

I've had other Sierra modems that Serra doesn't 'support' and they still worked under Ubuntu. I was hoping this might be another case of that?

It's possible that it might work in the future, but I don't even know where to start on testing for compatibility. Is there a standardized interface for these type of devices?

I'm guessing the '3G' operates separately from the '4G' part, so it might be possible to get it partially working. I'm happy to return output from any commands/scripts you think might be helpful.

The Sierra Aircard 250U 3G/4G USB modem is now available for pre-order at 3Gstore. All pre-orders will ship 7/11/10.

Price with new 2-year contract: $19.99 - $50 mail-in rebate = you MAKE $30!

The 250U is compatible with all of the 4G-capable Cradlepoint routers with the latest firmware, and is the first 3G/4G device with a usable antenna port (right now there are only 3G antennas available, but in the future we do anticipate that 4G antennas will become available as well). When you order the 250U with Sprint service from 3Gstore, you can get $20 off any router and $20 off an antenna!

Pre-order the 250U with Sprint service from 3Gstore

I thinking of upgrading to this new USB card. I'm happily using an S620 pcmia card while moving in car/bus/train and 3g works great.

I'm in Atlanta that has 4g, will this card and moving still work for me? Can this card be easily set into 3g only?

tnx curt
