Verizon has just released the Pantech UML295, their latest 3G/4G USB modem.

As the name suggests, it looks very similar to the UML290. It appears to have antenna ports and we will confirm which cable it uses ASAP; we will also be testing for router compatibility.

Like the other two most recent Verizon 4G devices (the MiFi 4620L and 5510L), the UML295 uses a micro SIM card instead of the larger standard size used by the UML290, USB551L, VL600, 4510L, 890L, and SCH-LC11.

See information and accessories for the Pantech UML295

Mauren,

So far I cannot find out whether the new Pantech UML295 will ALSO connect to Verizon's 3G signal.

I ask because here in Las Vegas I have a strong 4G signal BUT sometimes the signal reverts back down to 3G for a few minutes or hours.

I would hate to completely loose my connectivity every time the 4G signal dropped back to a 3G signal.

If the Pantech UML 295 cannot handle both 4G and 3G, Pantech may have made a major design error.

Like all of Verizon's 4G modems, the UML295 is backwards-compatible with 3G and even 2G - so you'll be ok Smile

What advantages would there be if any to upgrade to the 295?

Current setup: uml290, mbr900, external yagi.

The 295 is not supported in the MBR900 other than that the MODEMs perform the same, you would have to update your router if your updating to the 295 a MBR95 or the Pepwave SOHO
