AT&T Beam 4G USB Modem Shows Data Usage at a Glance

One of the worst things about using a wireless modem on the go to connect your computer to the Internet is that it’s a pain in the butt to know how much data you’ve used. A data overage can cost you hundreds of dollars or more, so most people will keep a close eye on exactly how much data they are using. With your typical wireless modem, that means you have to go to your wireless carrier’s website, or dig into the device’s settings to search out the report that will tell you how much data you’ve used so far for any given month.

However, AT&T has unveiled a clever new USB wireless modem that features an integrated LCD screen that can solve this problem.

Made by Sierra Wireless, the new wireless modem is called the Beam. The coolest thing about it is that its integrated display can do is show you exactly how much data you’ve used at a glance. The display also shows several other helpful bits of information including such as network type and signal strength indicator.

The wireless modem offers 4G LTE connectivity, and can also act as a storage device supporting memory cards up to 32 GB of capacity. The Beam will be available on May 10 for just $19.99(USD) – with a two-year contract, of course.
