The 503, 309 and AirCard 308 all support high-speed HSPA+ networks, allowing for peak download speeds of 21Mbps. The 503 has a two-in-one design that fits both PC card and ExpressCard slots. The AirCard 503 supports quad-band regular HSPA (850/900/1900/2100MHz) bands.
The AirCard 308 and 309 USB modems have a smaller form factor and connect to a notebook’s USB port externally.

The difference of opinion between the II models lies in the HSPA+ absolute frequency bands supported.
