AT&T's Unite Soon to Make its Debut

A&T has finally announced that on February 8, its LTE mobile 4G touchscreen hotspot, the Unite, will be for sale at all AT&T stores.  Days before the Consumer Electronic Show this year, AT&T publicized its new development, and CNET reported on the new hotspot.

For a mere .99 cents after signing a new two year contract, or $20 a month through the mobile share plan, consumers can connect up to 10 devices that has Wi-Fi capabilities as well as provide for one time users a guest network. With the share plan, users are able to share any and all data with family members across their tablets and smartphones on the AT&T network.

The Unite is the second touch-enabled hotspot in the AT&T family, and has a sleeker image than its predecessor, the Liberate, with its 2.4-inch touchscreen display, giving consumers the ability to block unwanted devices such as phones, tablets and laptops from joining the network, and change the networks and device settings. 

This new hotspot is lightweight, making it easy to carry around throughout the day, and “when combined with the nation's largest 4G network and our flexible Mobile Share plans, AT&T Unite offers a tremendous value for customers that are looking for reliable internet service while on-the-go,” stated Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Devices and Developer Services at AT&T.

It also has an on-screen meter which enables its users to see how much data they’re using at any given time, making the device rather user friendly.

AT&T 4G networks (LTE & HSPA) cover more than 285 million people across the United States – Internet everywhere all the time. AT&T reportedly offers the greatest number of wireless phones that work in most countries by offering its customers efficient wireless coverage worldwide.
