Verizon to Offer Prepaid Laptop Wireless Data

PC World: "Following in Virgin Mobile's footsteps, Verizon is offering a prepaid laptop broadband wireless service. The offering will let people pay for broadband wireless access as they need it, rather than subscribing to a monthly plan. It could appeal to infrequent business travelers or people on vacation.

After buying the US$130 USB modem, users can pay for broadband wireless access from Verizon in three different increments that cover time and data consumption. For one-day usage, people will pay $15 and get 75MB of data. Weekly prepaid access costs $30 and includes 250MB. The monthly offer costs $50 for up to 500MB of usage."
