[df-subtitle]Compatible with cars from 1996 on, the device offers a mobile 4G connection[/df-subtitle]
AT&T on Monday announced announced the ZTE Mobley, a mobile 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for automobiles which connects via the OBD-II port. Designed to work with most cars from the last decade (1996+) on, it allows for up to five devices to connect at once.
Essentially, the ZTE Mobley acts as a portable hotspot in the same manner your phone would. AT&T will sell the Mobley outright for $100; however it will also be free if customers agree to a two-year service agreement.
[blockquote author=”Lixin Cheng, CEO and chairman of ZTE USA”]We worked with AT&T to define, build and deliver a product that was both useful and affordable. Collaborating with like-minded organizations in the U.S.[/blockquote]
The unit can be added to a new or existing Mobile Share Value plan for $10 per month, using data from the pooled account. Alternatively, there are Data Connect plans for $20 per month (1GB data) or $30 per month (3GB data).
Talk about hacking cars! Plugging a wifi router into your OBDII port is asking for trouble.
