Internet access in the connected car will become a great deal more usable after Chinese telecommunications company Huawei and Orange, a French mobile network, announced a wi-fi product for cars in Spain.
Huawei Technologies and Orange launched a new system called Car-Wi-Fi that allows users to connect to ten different smartphones, tablets, terminals, among others, in the same automobile to Wi-Fi. The Chinese telecommunications giant’s Car-WiFi system allows 4G connectivity and only weighs 50g with dimensions of 59x49x88mm. It sells for EUR99 (USD110).
Orange Spain’s director of residential mobile marketing, Mickael Faure, has obviously had one too many uncomfortable journeys with younger passengers, touting this as the product’s unique selling point.
“With Car Wi-Fi, we once again show that we are the first to offer an exclusive and innovative solution to our clients. The question ‘are we there yet? ‘ that children always ask on journeys, will end with Car Wi-Fi.” – Mickael Faure, Orange Spain’s director of residential mobile marketing
