2011 Audi A8 Offers In-Vehicle Wi-Fi Access

June 04, 2010

HERNDON, VA - The new 2011 Audi A8 is allegedly the first car in the world to offer an optional factory-installed WLAN hotspot for Wi-Fi access, according to egmCarTech.com.

Using the WLAN hotspot is remarkably simple. To activate Internet access with speeds up to 7.2 Mbit/s, the driver inserts a data-capable SIM card into the Bluetooth online car phone. Alternatively, an Internet connection can be established via Bluetooth by using a compatible mobile phone with a SIM Access Profile. Any existing mobile phone contract can be used for this - often coupled with a flat-rate data plan.

All this is made possible through a rooftop antenna of the Audi A8 via the car's own UMTS module. This enables the most connection stability with great reception quality.
