Launch2Net Premium updates to v2.1, adds modems

updated 07:35 pm EDT, Fri November 5, 2010

Keeps track of data usage, creates wi-fi networks

Nova Media today announced a major update of its 3G connection manager for Mac, Launch2Net Premium, to v2.1, adding new support to 3G modems from Huawei and ZTE as well as updating its connection settings for other providers such as Novatel, Sierra Wireless, Sony Ericsson and Option. The program smoothes the connection process for Mac users who want to use a 3G modem to provide internet access, helps find local prepaid providers, keeps track of usage and includes an ability to create an ad-hoc wi-fi network so that non-3G devices can share the connection.

In addition, Launch2Net Premium features an SMS text message manager and support for VPN and prepaid connections, also improved in the new version. Users visiting a foreign country can quickly discover which providers can give them compatible pre-paid access, and can view detailed statistics on use in home and roaming situations, helping them to avoid billing errors or overage charges by keeping customers aware of how much 3G data they are using.

The v2.1 update is free to current users, and new copies may be purchased for $50 throughout North America (50 elsewhere). Launch2Net Premium requires an Intel Mac running 10.5 or higher. A demo version is available.
