Sprint won the race to the EV-DO Rev. A finish line, but Verizon is apparently coming in close behind. That’s all well and good for the Windows folks in coverage areas, but the enterprising Mac folks are taking advantage of the super wireless speeds as well. Derek has a great post up on the steps and information needed to make this happen; no speedtest results as of yet, but he’s got the Novatel Wireless U720 USB modem working well on OS X.

Bear in mind you’ll need to activate the modem on a Windows system, or on Windows within Parallels or Boot Camp. Derek also has a link to necessary drivers; once you have that and an activated modem, you’re only minutes away from wireless nirvana!

  1. For those interested, the following is a screenshot of the speed results taken from Speedtest.net using the U720 outside of the Greater Seattle area. I imagine the speeds would be a little downtown. [ Share
