Clearwire today introduced a new 4G USB modem called the Clear Stick Atlas, a device that’s designed to give customers access to the company’s 4G wireless network without the hassle of installing additional software.

Weighing in at 1.1 ounces and measuring 1.2 inches wide, the company says that the Clear Stick Atlas easily fits into a purse or pocket so computer or mobile users can get fast Internet access on the go.

The device works in conjunction with a slew of connected devices with USB ports, from netbooks and tablets to gaming devices and laptops. Users must be on a Clearwire service plan to use the 4G USB.

“With the Clear Stick Atlas, getting connected to unlimited 4G couldn’t be easier – no programs to open or software to download – just plug it in and surf on any capable Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome or Android-based device,”  said Dow Draper, senior vice president and general manager at Clearwire.
