Bringing Wi-Fi To The Highway

Apr. 8 – The first Internet cars are beginning to appear on Bay Area roads: Min- vans with Web video playing in the back seat, and SUVs sharing traffic advice with each other. Your car could have its own email address. The Information Highway is merging onto the real highway.

In the trunk is a wireless modem made by startup company AutoNet, an Internet Service Provider for cars. Kids in the back seat can watch video streaming from back home, no DVD required.

Sterling Pratz/AutoNet: “We found that people get tired of watching the same DVD over and over. What they want is full Internet access in the car.”

Autonet Mobile is a Wireless Internet Service designed to maintain seamless connectivity within the car. Our service turns the car into a WiFi hotspot, allowing multiple people to connect their own WiFi enabled computers to the internet.

The system operates over both 3G and 2.5G (EVDO, 1xRTT) cellular Data networks. Simply plug the in-car router into your cigarette car lighter, connect your WiFi device(s) and surf the net.

The Autonet Mobile In-Car Router retails for $399 with a monthly subscription of $49.95 for unlimited data.
