AT&T is launching a “free” WiFi hotspot for the car that plugs into the OBD2 port to deliver LTE data speeds to all the car’s passengers.
Called the ZTE Mobley, it’s AT&T’s first plug-in vehicle WiFi hotspot. It allows always on 4G service, as it turns on and off with the car’s ignition.
The device is free with a 2-year contract or $100 without a contract. But the data charges are $20/month for 1GB of data or $10 if you are adding to an existing plan. It’s available starting September 11 in AT&T stores and online at http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/zte.html.
