Simple In-Car WiFi Hotspot Launches Friday

share on:
AT&T ZTE Mobley

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.

  1. There are far better and more affordable in-vehicle infotainment 4G data choices if you or your customers are interested.

  2. Bad idea.
    Regular Hot spot devices are more portable.
    Dealers will start blaming any defect that goes wrong with the car on this device.
    Prefer to have a real conversation with the passengers rather than seeing everyone busy with his/her device. Few people will buy it but they will regret it on the long run. I give this device a thump down.

    The cell companies are starting to become a big hurdle for advancing tech with the way they are charging customers for data usage.
